Peter Uihlein pulled out of this week's Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa ahead of the second round after feeling ill. UPDATE: Uihlein returned to action Nov. 16th at the DP World Tour Championship and is T7 thru 54 holes (71-68-65).
The American had been a popular pick with gamers and bettors for the Sun City event after combining notable current form with some strong displays in South Africa, including T10 on his only previous start in this event. He was sitting just three back after an opening 70 but the 'WD' sign went up against his name before the second round. The European Tour told Rotoworld: "He was sick, not very well at all." Uihlein will hope to recover for next week's season closer in Dubai having already booked his place some time ago (sits 16th on Race to Dubai). Nov 10 - 9:56 AM

Peter Uihlein came up with an eagle and three birdies in his final eight holes at the Turkish Airlines Open on Friday, a second-round 4-under-par 34-33=67 taking him to 6-under 136 overall and into a tie for ninth.

That's a rise of 10 spots although he's eight back from leader Nicolas Colsaerts. The American looked as if he'd be way back in the pack after a slow start today. He swallowed bogeys at 2 and 8 and, despite circles at 6 and 7, another dropped shot at the 10th hole took him over par for the day. But a birdie at 11 proved the start of a late rush which really took off via eagle-2 at 13 and continued with red numbers at 16 and 18. Uihlein, who finished T5 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China last week, can now approach the final 36 holes with hopes of another big cheque.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 73 Peter Uihlein stumbled to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the second round of the Safeway Open and at 4-over 75-73=148, missed the cut by five shots.

A total of 75 pros from a field of 143 pros and one amateur made the cut of 1-under 143. Uihlein, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, was highest-up the bookmaker's food chain to MC, as well as the highest in OWGR to exit early. For the shortened week, he carded seven birdies against nine bogeys and a double. The 28-year-old, who was No. 1 in Web.com Tour Finals earnings (excluding The 25), entered the season at 3rd in the Priority Rankings. He won the Finals-opening Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship and also won one time in 114 career European Tour starts. Other notable MCs include: 144- Keegan Bradley; Harris English; Sam Saunders .. 145- Johnson Wagner; Patton Kizzire .. 148- 2015 champ Sangmoon Bae; Mackenzie Hughes .. 152- Keith Mitchell.

Making just the third start of his Web.com 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 Web.com 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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
