Palmer powers to Rocky Mountain title!

Veteran Australian David Palmer (pic le) notched up the 27th Tour title of his illustrious squash career when he upset favourite Laurens Jan Anjema (pic ri) in the final of the Calgary Rocky Mountain Open in Canada. The final was the standout match of the championship in its 2nd year – in which the 34-year-old Palmer, a four-time British Open champion and twice World Open champion, recovered from 1/2 down to topple Anjema 11-7, 5-11, 4-11, 11-7, 11-6. It was a sensational conclusion to his Calgary campaign for the now US-based Palmer, who had already extended his record as the current player with the most appearances in PSA Tour finals by reaching his 54th.
