Making just the third start of his Tour career, Peter Uihlein posted four sub-70 rounds to hoist the hardware at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, a good enough haul to secure his PGA TOUR card for the upcoming season.
Uihlein had played in this event twice before, both times as an amateur. He missed the cut in the 2010 edition and returned the following year to finish T9. That was back when the event was hosted in July, not the first stop on the Tour Finals. This time around he improved his position in each round, finding himself T15, T6, and then T4 after the first three rounds before closing with a 6-under 65. World No. 74 has been happily spending his time overseas on the European Tour since 2012, but now he'll have full playing priviledges on the PGA TOUR. Uihlein already declared on Twitter that he'll maintain a European Tour schedule, which means he'll need to make the most of his Stateside starts when the season flips to the 2017-18 schedule. Growing up in America and still having a home base in Florida, Uihlein should have no troubles making a smooth transition. Sep 6 - 10:40 AM

Peter Uihlein charged down the back nine at Le Golf National, but his final round 3-under-par 37-31=68 was one shy of the target the winner Tommy Fleetwood had set on 11-under 273 in the Open de France.

The American claimed a third runner-up finish of his European Tour career, failing to add to his one victory despite a thrilling conclusion to his round. Entering the final day with a share of the lead he made back-to-back bogey-5s at 4 and 5 which he will rue when he dwells on his performance, but he recovered one shot immediately with birdie -3 at the 6th before making four straight pars. At that stage he seemed too far back to mount a challenge, but slowly he fought back. He made birdie-2 at the 11th, went back-to-back red at 13 and 14, then drained a birdie at 17, meaning a birdie-3 at the last would force a play-off. Alas he could only manage par. The result does, however, vault him to 8th in the Race to Dubai and he also won a spot in The Open.

Peter Uihlein completed a magnificent 18th hole up-and-down to hold onto a share of the 54-hole lead with Alexander Bjork at the Open de France after a third lap of level-par 37-34=71 gave him a total of 8-under 205 at Le Golf National.

On a tough day of scoring the American opened up with bogey-5 at the first before scratching 13 straight pars. He sole red number came next, his third birdie-4 of the week at No. 14, before the closed out with four more pars. On the last, however, he had to work for it after his drive found thick grass. He chopped out to 100-yards, then hit a fine wedge to kick-in range. The top two hold a one-stroke advantage over the dangerous trio of Thomas Pieters, Tommy Fleetwood and Andy Sullivan; in all 15 players are within four swings of the lead. Uihlein has held two solo 54-hole leads, finishing second both times. He’s never shared the lead at this stage.

Peter Uihlein dropped a 20’0" par putt on the 18th green to secure a share of the lead at the 36-hole stage of the Open de France; he carded a second round 4-under-par 34-33=67 for 8-under 134, tied with Adrian Otaegui and two clear of Tommy Fleetwood and Alexander Bjork.

The American has more reason than most to have been inspired in recent weeks. First he had the best seat in the house when watching Alex Noren’s victory charge at Wentworth in the BMW PGA Championship, then his one-time room-mate Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open. On Friday Uihlein was in superb form, notching birdies on the front nine at 3 and 9, then pegging three in a row at 13, 14 and 15. He dropped a shot at 17 to fall out of the solo lead, but then completed the par save on the last in near dark (after the threat of lightning had earlier caused a 125 minute delay). It is the fifth time he has held or shared the lead at halfway; he’s yet to convert the win from such a position.

Peter Uihlein crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in round one of the Open de France in Paris, settling just one shot behind clubhouse leaders Alexander Bjork and Nathan Kimsey.

That puts the American T3 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon session in play. Uihlein started from the 10th tee at Le Golf National today and made a steady start with four straight pars. He picked up his first shot at the par-5 14th and then got back on the par train and rode it for the next seven holes. The World No. 162 turned a decent day into a very good one with red circles at 4, 7 and 9. Uihlein has missed his last two cuts although they were back on home soil at the St. Jude Classic and U.S. Open. He currently slots in at 42nd on this year's Race to Dubai and this is the foundation for another good week.

Peter Uihlein slots in at 42nd on the Race to Dubai ahead of this week's Open de France at Le Golf National.

The big-hitting American is playing the tournament for just the second time and will hope to do better than his disappointing 75-73=MC on debut in 2013. Uihlein has switched his time between the PGA TOUR and European Tour this season and this is his first start on the latter since T30 at the BMW PGA Championship. He followed that with T25 at Memorial but failed to make the weekend in the St. Jude Classic or U.S. Open. He has three top seven finishes in Europe in 2017 and also a T5 at the Puerto Rico Open.
Jun 28 - 3:06 AM

Peter Uihlein takes his talents to Dublin, Ohio, for his tournament debut at this week's Memorial Tournament.

World No. 159 would love to crack the top 60 before the U.S. Open which will be played at Erin Hills, the same site as the 2011 U.S. Amateur. Uihlein enters with top 35s in 9-of-10 starts worldwide, including a T5 at the Puerto Rico Open and a T23 at the Shell Houston Open. Gamers should condier Uihlein a very high upside pick this week in all fantasy formats.
May 31 - 8:12 AM

Peter Uihlein's strong 2017 form transferred to the PGA Tour last week and his success there earned him a spot in the Shell Houston Open.

After the injury woes of 2016 Uihlein has bounced back in promising style this term, posting five top 20 finishes on the European Tour and then rubber-stamping his progress with T5 in last week's Puerto Rico Open. All four of his laps in the Caribbean were sub-70, the first time he has achieved that since the Turkish Airlines Open of November 2015. If all that news sounds trumpets, his record in Texas blows one. He's 0-for-3 and has broken 74 just once in six rounds. The slightly better news is that on his only previous performance at the GC of Houston his first round 69 had him T38 (although the second round 78 will be something he'll prefer to forget).
Mar 28 - 6:38 AM

Peter Uihlein closed out his week at the Puerto Rico Open with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to accumulate a four-day tally of 17-under 271, good for a share of third place on the live leaderboard. UPDATE: With play finished for the week, Uihlein collects a T5 finish, good for a spot into next week's Shell Houston Open if he chooses to accept the opportunity.

The European Tour star cracked this week's field on a sponsor's invite and he's put that invite to good use. Starting the day in a share of 12th place, Uihlein striped 13 fairways today, missing just one during his final navigation of Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. With preferred lies in effect, those fairways were crucial as he was able to play the ball up throughout the round and that led to 15 greens in regulation and seven birdies. Making his 24th start on the PGA TOUR, this will go in the books as his third top 10 (T6/2013 Puerto Rico Open; T4/2015 Sanderson Farms). The Oklahoma State product is not in the field at next week's Shell Houston Open but he is currently in line to earn a spot with this top 10.
Mar 26 - 1:52 PM

World No. 174 Peter Uihlein takes his talents to Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, for his fourth appearance at this week's Puerto Rico Open.

The talented American has been spending his days on the European Tour since leaving Oklahoma State in 2011. Last season he was working his way back from injury but Uihlein collected eight top 25s in 22 starts during the 2015 season. Previously the No. 1 ranked amateur in the world, Uihlein's success has not translated to the PGA TOUR where he is 7-for-23 in his career. On the bright side, one of those seven paychecks was a T6 at the 2012 Puerto Rico Open. The pedigree is too strong to ignore, and gamers should not let Uihlein get overlooked this week.
Mar 20 - 8:29 PM

With five birdies in his final eight holes, Peter Uihlein tacked on a closing 5-under-par 35-31=66 to Saturday's 65 and charged through the field to finish solo fourth at the Tshwane Open in South Africa with 14-under 270.

That was three swings behind winner Dean Burmester and continues the American's renaissance following T5 in last month's Dubai Desert Classic and T7 at January's South African Open. Uihlein chuggled along in 1-over through his first seven holes today but a birdie at the par-5 9th provided the spark he needed. After a par at 10, Uihlein splashed red at 11, 13, 15, 17 and 18 to rise seven spots on the day, round off an excellent weekend and move him into the top 25 on the Race to Dubai.
Mar 5 - 10:26 AM

Peter Uihlein will fancy his chances of a good week at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth; he boasts great form and has fond memories of the Lake Karrinyup course.

The American will tee it up in the new format knowing that in theory he's got the complete package for success. Back in 2014 he finished T9 at the course, then he improved that to T4 in 2016, when no-one could better his performance on the putting surfaces. On both occasions he carded a 65. More recently he has proved himself to be well over the surgery which blighted his 2016 season and has pegged T7 in the South African Open and T5 in the Dubai Desert Classic. Last week he opened with a 66 before finishing T34 in the Maybank Championship. A classy performer, he'll feel confident of making the 54-hole cut, but like everyone else will then hope for the best in the six-hole match play.
Feb 14 - 4:32 AM

Peter Uihlein hoisted a flawless round of 6-under-par 32-34=66 to sit T3 on the live leaderboard after the morning wave completed their opening laps at the Maybank Championship.

The tricky nature of the Saujana G&CC appeared no problem to the American, who posted only birdies and pars on his first tour of the Palm Course. Starting on the back nine he wasted no time rising up the leaderboard as he ticked 10, 11 and 13. Another birdie at 17 saw him turn in 32 swings. On the front nine he needed more patience, but eventually ticked 5 and 8. His round leaves him three behind the early pacesetter Marc Warren and it is entirely in sync with his introduction to the 2017 season. He was T3 after 18 holes at the Hong Kong Open, then posted top seven finshes in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. He was also T2 after round one of this event 12 months ago, ending the week T9.
Feb 9 - 3:09 AM

Peter Uihlein's 2016 was badly disrupted by injury, but his closing lap of 3-under-par 35-34=69 saw him finish the week on 12-under 276, good for T5 in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates GC.

This time laat year the American departed the Desert Swing with two missed cuts only to post T9-T4-T4 in his next three starts - a good season beckoned, right? Wrong. He was hampered by an injury and soon surgery was the only option. When he returned in late summer the returns were non-existent and a MC in the seasonal opener, the Australian PGA Championship, offered little hope. But three weekends of action followed and this result, an improvement on his previous best in the event of T13, is a genuine boost. His front nine on the last lap witnessed one birdie and one bogey, but a strong back nine confirmed the big check. He swallowed a birdie chance at 13 and then another pair at 17 and 18. Entering the week at 257 in the world rankings he looks to be heading back towards his rightful place in the top 100.
Feb 5 - 8:27 AM

Peter Uihlein has endured contrasting first day fortunes at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic; he'll be hoping for good rather than bad when he returns to the Emirates GC this week.

The American's first visit to the Majlis course in 2012 saw him open with a 75 for T116 and a second round 70 left him free for the weekend. Two years later he again announced himself with a 75 and his Friday 68 was once more insufficient to extend his stay. Then in 2015 he sliced fully ten shots off his opening lap (a 65) which was good for T2 and rounds of 69-70-71 earned him T13. If that represents good vibes, there are also hints among his recent results. After a MC in the Australian PGA Championship an opening 66 helped him to T14 in the Hong Kong Open. Earlier this month a second round 64 contributed to a T7 in the South African Open and even two weeks ago there was a Friday 67 as he pegged T49 in Abu Dhabi.
