Peter Uihlein crafted a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship and is the clubhouse leader at 13-under 275.
Uihlein's lap around the Country Club of Jackson was without a blemish on the scorecard that included seven birdies. It is widely known that he does not enjoy any status on the PGA TOUR, but he's a member of the European Tour where he's currently 77th in the Race to Dubai ranking. It is expected that he will honor his commitment to the Turkish Airlines Open next week, but he would have the option to play the OHL Classic at Mayakoba by virtue of his top-10 finish in Mississippi. UPDATE: Uihlein finished in a three-way share of fourth place at the SFC. It's a career best in 20 PGA TOUR starts. He collects 68.333 non-member FedExCup points and $165,333.34 in non-member earnings. Both are big steps toward procuring PGA TOUR status in 2015-16. Nov 9 - 3:31 PM

Peter Uihlein is the recipient of a sponsor exemption into this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Uihlein is a hot young name, despite having no status on the PGA TOUR. He's recent returns across the globe are impressive, making eight consecutive cuts and tying for ninth at the ISPS HANDA Perth International. The American last competed in the U.S. at the Shell Houston Open in April, missing the cut. In a field as weak as the one gathered at the Country Club of Jackson, it wouldn't be a big surprise to see him contend.

Peter Uihlein blew up for an 8-over-par 40-40=80 in his opening round of the BMW International Open.

Back inside the ropes since a back injury forced him to withdraw after only three holes of the BMW Championship at Wentworth a month ago, the American split only one of 14 fairways at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof in Köln, Germary, and hit seven greens in regulation. Yet, he amassed 30 putts and erased two birdies with six bogeys and two doubles.

Peter Uihlein is listed in the preliminary field for the European Tour's BMW International on June 26-29.

Uihlein has had a rough go of it this year. While he's recently battled a back injury, he's mired in and 0-for-8 slump since a T25 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship on March 9. He's currently 66th in the Race to Dubai and 97th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Peter Uihlein has elected not to compete in Monday's U.S. Open sectional qualifier in England, citing a back injury.

It's that time of the year when focus shifts in earnest toward the season's second major. Sectional qualifying in Japan and England will be contested tomorrow, May 26. Ten sites in the U.S. are scheduled to distribute exemptions on June 2. Uihlein withdrew only three holes into the BMW PGA Championship due to the injury that has knocked him out of the running for a tee time at Pinehurst. While he doesn't have any status on the PGA TOUR, he carries enough cachet among fantasy gamers to warrant a spot on our Injury Report.

Peter Uihlein has picked up a sponsor invite into the Valero Texas Open.

The non-member in regards to PGA TOUR status had high hopes for picking up Special Temporary Membership in 2013-14, but things aren't headed down that path at this point. Uihlein ranks 72nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, but has missed two of his four cuts in PGA TOUR sanctioned events this season. The two paydays came in WGCs, where a cut didn't exist. This is his first look at TPC San Antonio.

Peter Uihlein is competing in The Honda Classic on a sponsor exemption.

Despite being an American, Uihlein makes his home on the European Tour. It sort of goes without saying that he's trying to make his way onto the PGA TOUR, and a big finish this week could be a step in that direction. The only way he ends up as a member of the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 would be by winning a TOUR event. Should he fail in that regard, there are several other avenues that could eventually lead him to obtain a 2014-15 card.

For finishing 14th in the Race to Dubai, Peter Uihlein is exempt into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in March.

Uihlein settled for a solo 51st-place finish in his debut at the DP World Tour Championship, but the spoils for his long-term body of work are being realized. The top 20 in the season-ending Race to Dubai [R2D] qualify for the no-cut invitational at the revamped Blue Monster Course at Doral. Sixteen others were not yet exempt into the field: Ian Poulter (second in R2D); Graeme McDowell (fourth); Jamie Donaldson (fifth); Victor Dubuisson (sixth); Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño (seventh); Richard Sterne (eighth); Thongchai Jaidee (ninth); Thomas Björn (10th); Matteo Manassero (11th); Joost Luiten (12th); Francesco Molinari (13th); Lee Westwood (15th); Brett Rumford (17th); Branden Grace (18th); Stephen Gallacher (19th); Ernie Els (20th).

Peter Uihlein makes his World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions debut at Sheshan International Golf Club this week.

It's no secret the American would love to find a home on the PGA TOUR at some point in his career, and this week could be the first step. Because of his strategic decision to spurn the Tour in favor of global golf, he has boosted his world ranking all the way to 60th. As that continues to grow, he will see more and more action in PGA TOUR sanctioned WGCs and majors and begin to add up the dollars as it relates to Special Temporary Membership. That worked out pretty well for Jordan Spieth last season.

Peter Uihlein is set to tee it up in the PGA Championship.

The American has played almost all of his professional golf on the European Tour, climbing to 109th in the Official World Golf Rankings. Obviously he’s done well, with a win at the Madeira Islands Open his overwhelming highlight. That is one of six top 10s he’s posted across the globe in 2013.

With a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in his final round of the Madeira Islands Open, Peter Uihlein recorded a two-stroke victory, his first on a professional circuit.

Uihlein turned pro exactly 17 months ago today and he's just 23 years of age. He posted 15-under 273 at Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra in Santo António. His second-round 64 drew real-time rumblings that he was chasing a 59 as he was 10-under through 12 holes, but it failed to develop since he played his last six holes in birdie-free 2-over. For the week, he converted an eagle and 22 birdies against nine bogeys. Morten Ørum Madsen and Mark Tullo shared runner-up honors in this opposite event on the European Tour. Defending champion Ricardo Santos tied for 19th. After starting the week at 246th in the Official World Golf Ranking, Uihlein should rise about 100 spots thanks to his maiden title.

Peter Uihlein has been added to the field of this week's Tampa Bay Championship.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. Uihlein's T6 in Puerto Rico clinched a top-10 exemption into this week's tournament. In his only previous appearance at Copperhead, he tied for 57th as an amateur in 2011.

Peter Uihlein polished off a top-10 finish at the Puerto Rico Open with an eagle at the 18th hole, signing for a 5-under-par 31-36=67 to finish at 17-under 271.

Playing without any status on the PGA TOUR, this is his first top-10 finish and allows him a spot in the upcoming Tampa Bay Championship if he chooses to take advantage of the opportunity. It's hard to imagine he wouldn't, as it wouldn't take very many more weeks like this one to play his way on TOUR. Though he is tied for the clubhouse lead, it is highly unlikely that his total will be good enough for a playoff.

Peter Uihlein faded to an even-par 37-35=72 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open, remaining barely inside the top 10 at 12-under 204.

Given his lack of status on the PGA TOUR, it's not a surprise that the pressure of performing with the absence of status could have gotten the better of him. After a birdie on the par-5 second, he suffered back-to-back bogeys on the fourth and fifth holes. A late birdie on the 17th hole squared is round.

Peter Uihlein backed up his opening 67 at the Puerto Rico Open with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 to set the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 132.

This is rapidly shaping up to be Uihlein's coming-out party on the PGA TOUR where it doesn't take but one week to make a career. He started on the backside of Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today and converted five birdies before the turn. He'd go on to pick off two more coming in and set the early bar for the field of 132 on the island.
