Peter Uihlein elected to have surgery on his nagging wrist injury, and will be out of action for at least two months, with no specific timeline for return.
The talented American who spends his time overseas on the European Tour has been playing through this injury, but he knew this day was coming. Uihlein took to Twitter today and told his followers "Decided to go under the knife! Pain was too extreme, hopefully be back in a few months." Despite the torn tendon in his wrist, Uihlein has rattled off three top 10s in 10 European Tour starts. At the same time, the pain has forced him to withdraw mid-tournament on two occasions. Long term, this could be a fantastic move for his game and career overall, but gamers will have to wait anxiously for a few months while he recovers. May 9 - 10:22 AM

Peter Uihlein hung up a gutsy 3-under-par 33-36=69 in round three of the True Thailand Classic and secured a place in Sunday's final pairing.

The American is troubled by a wrist injury but battled through it to post just one of nine rounds in the 60s at Black Mountain on Saturday. That nudged him up to solo second place on 12-under 204, just two shots behind leader Scott Hend. Uihlein was faultless to the turn with birdies at 1, 7 and 9 but found the going tougher on the back nine. He bogeyed the par-4 12th for the third day running while a birdie at 13 was his only other deviation from par. On the stats, Uihlein piped 8 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. He kept his card tidy with 5-for-6 scrambling and took just 26 putts.

First-round pacesetter Peter Uihlein had to settle for a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in Friday's second lap of Black Mountain and dropped to T4 on 9-under 135.

The American, who birdied half the holes yesterday, added five more par breakers today but their impact was negated by four bogeys. Two of those came on par 5s. At least a pair of closing birdies put Uihlein under par for the day although he's now three off the lead held by Pelle Edberg and Scott Hend going into the weekend. After hitting 15 greens in regulation in round one, he managed just 10 today; it proved costly as he could only manage four successful scrambles out of eight. He'll hope that this is his bad round out of the way as it looks as if two low ones will be needed to get the job done now on a course yielding low scores.

Peter Uihlein blitzed Black Mountain GC, crashing 9 birdies on his way to a 8-under-par 32-32=64 which left him a shot clear of Pelle Edberg after round one of the True Thailand Classic.

For the American it marks a third fast start in a row, after he found himself T2 after 18 holes in Malaysia and solo first at the same stage of the Perth International. On both those occasions he kicked off with 65s; today he went one better. Beginning from the 10th tee he stated his intentions early, marking red on 10, 11 and 13. The 12th saw him unable to save par from off the green, his only error of the day, but he bounced back with two more back nine birdies on 16 and 17. The front nine witnessed another two braces of par breakers, on 1 and 2, then 6 and 7. He hit 15 greens and needed just 27 putts. "I’m pleased, I putted well and the putter is still hot which is nice. I hit some good wedges, some good iron shots," said Uihlein. His task for the rest of the week is to maintain the challenge, as he was unable to in Malaysia and Perth where he ultimately finished T9 and T4 respectively.

Peter Uihlein's title bid at the ISPS HANDA Perth International came up short after he posted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in Sunday's closing round to take tied fourth on 13-under 275.

The American, who finished three swings behind winner Louis Oosthuizen, secured his first top five on the European Tour since last April's Shenzhen International although it promised to be an even bigger week after he'd held a piece of the 36-hole lead. As with Saturday's 71, Uihlein went flat on the back nine. He'd entered it just two off the pace after birdies at 4 and 9 but faltered with bogeys at 12 and 14. A final birdie at 15 raised hopes briefly but it was too little, too late. He hit 14 greens in regulation today after splitting 8 (of 14) fairways. The T4 here follows a T9 in Malaysia last week so, after a dip in form and some injury concerns, Uihlein looks to be coming back to his best again.
Feb 28 - 5:06 AM

With a 1-under-par 33-38=71, Peter Uihlein went from joint leader to three off the pace after the third round of the ISPS HANDA Perth International.

The American continued his title push with four birdies against a lone bogey over his opening nine holes but then came off the rails with a destructive triple bogey-6 at the 148-yard 12th. He got two of the shots back via successive birdies at 14 and 15 but dropped another at the last to finish at 12-under 204 and end the day three behind new leader Louis Oosthuizen. He's far from done yet though. Despite that back-nine wobble, Uihlein is in a tie for second place so poised to pounce on any slip-ups from the South African. He might need to tighten up tee to green though after splitting just 50% of the 14 fairways and hitting only 12 greens in regulation for the second day running.
Feb 27 - 4:26 AM

Overnight leader Peter Uihlein birdied his final two holes in a 4-under-par 35-33=68 but now shares the halfway lead with local man Brett Rumford at the ISPS HANDA Perth International.

Uihlein and Rumford share top spot on 11-under 133 at Lake Karrinyup in Western Australia, a shot clear of pre-tournament favorite Louis Oosthuizen. The 26-year-old American started out with birdies at 10 and 14 but gave both shots back with bogeys at 16 and 2. He rallied after that, though, circling par breakers at four of his final seven holes, the final two after sinking putts of 30ft and 18ft respectively. "I'm moving it really well, putting nicely," said Uihlein. "Putting my irons pretty close as well, which is nice, and hitting my wedges well when I have the opportunity. It's nice, I'm just trying to get in a position where I can attack the greens and then hole some putts." So far this week he's 7-for-10 in scrambling and has taken 51 putts. This, after hitting just 6 (of 14) fairways in both rounds.

With a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in Thursday's opening round, Peter Uihlein tops the leaderboard at the ISPS HANDA Perth International in Australia.

Uihlein finished T9 when this event was last played in October 2014 so clearly enjoys Lake Karrinyup CC. He leads by one from Frenchman Romain Wattel and India's Shiv Kapur while Rhein Gibson is the leading Aussie player a stroke further back. Uihlein pulled out of the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month with a wrist injury but showed all was well again when T9 in last week's Maybank Championship Malaysia. He wobbled early today with a bogey at 1 and needed to hole from 25ft for par at 2. But after that his round took flight with birdies at 3, 4, 7, 11, 14 and 17 and an eagle-2 at 9 thanks to a hole-out with his approach. The American hit 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling. He said, "I putted nicely, which is always helpful, but if I didn't hit a good shot I didn't really let it bother me, I just let it roll off my back and I was ready for the next one."
Feb 25 - 5:06 AM

A walk-off bogey denied him a piece of the clubhouse lead but Peter Uihlein still enjoyed his opening round at the Maybank Championship Malaysia after signing for a 6-under-par 31-34=65 on Thursday.

If it's possible to have a sense of what might have been after a 65, Uihlein probably felt it after hitting 6-under after just seven holes of his afternoon round at Royal Selangor. That explosive start included an eagle-3 at 13 and birdies at 11, 12, 14 and 16. The American circled two more par breakers at 2 and 5 but was kept in check by bogeys at 17 and 9. The latter put him back into a tie for second, a shot behind leader Nathan Holman of Australia. Uihlein piped 8 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, failing to get up and down twice in his five attempts.

Peter Uihlein was T31 in last year's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and returns this week for another crack.

Uihlein actually made a bigger noise than that finish suggests as his end of round positions over the first three days were 8-4-8 until he fell down the leaderboard with a 74 on Sunday. He would return to the United Arab Emirates twice more in 2015, finishing T13 at the Dubai Desert Classic and T22 in the season-ending DP World Tour Championship. This is the American's first event since a T38 in December's Australian PGA Championship. He finished 47th on last year's Race to Dubai.

Peter Uihlein served up a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in Friday's second round at the Australian PGA and vaulted 33 spots up the leaderboard to tied second.

At 2-under 142, the American is just one stroke behind leader David Lingmerth of Sweden. Uihlein's lap of RACV Royal Pines Resort was the joint second lowest of the day as many of his rivals struggled on the par 72 at Queensland's windy Gold Coast. The 26-year-old circled birdies in two of his opening three holes and added another at 7. After eight straight pars, he made another move with birdies at 16 and 17. As in Thursday's opening 75, Uihlein split 8 (of 14) fairways but he upped his GIR count from 9 to 17, a superb effort with conditions tough.

Peter Uihlein shot a best-of-the-day 6-under-par 33-33=66 in round two of the BMW Masters in China and advanced 31 spots on the leaderboard to T7.

The American started slowly with three pars and a bogey at 11 but then caught fire with seven consecutive birdies from the 15th to the 3rd. He had the chance to extend his streak to eight at the 4th but his putt came up an inch short. With another birdie at 7 cancelling out a bogey at 6, Uihlein finished the day at 7-under 137. He crafted Friday's low round at Lake Malaren by splitting 11 (of 14) fairways, hitting 15 greens in regulation and taking 26 putts. He'll enter the weekend five strokes behind Lucas Bjerregaard.

Peter Uihlein closed with a pair of 66s to finish T13 in the UBS Hong Kong Open on Sunday and aims to ride that momentum into this week's Turkish Airlines Open.

The field for the opening event of the Final Series comprises players in the world's top 60, four tournament invites and three Turkish locals before going on Race To Dubai order. At 76th in the RTD, Uihlein is just okay with 87th occupying the final place in the 78-man field. Last year, his good friend Brooks Koepka won the event so Uihlein will be looking to follow in his American compatriot's footsteps. The Floridian could only manage T57 in the inaugural edition of this tournament but showed a liking for the Montgomerie Maxx Royal when shooting a second-round 65 last year and posting T11.

American Peter Uihlein will make his debut in the Open d'Italia this week.

While this is a new event for the 26-year-old, he does have some good memories from three Challenge Tour tournaments he played in Italy three years ago. He took T12 at the Challenge Provincia di Varese, T10 in the Acaya Open and T12 again at the Apulia San Domenico Grand Final. This will be his first look at Golf Club Milano and the concern for gamers is that it's a tight, tree-lined track which could punish Uihlein's wayward driving. He's way down at 217th in that category this season and is hitting just 45.8% of fairways. On the plus side, other areas of his game are picking up again and he's posted T17 at the Czech Masters and T30 in last week's KLM Open on his two latest starts.

Peter Uihlein heads to Switzerland this week to take part in the Omega European Masters for the third straight year.

Crans-sur-Sierre, in the Swiss Alps, is one of the most picturesque venues on the European Tour and Uihlein will look to improve on last year's best of T36 which included a third-round 65. The American has missed his last three cuts worldwide and also had to pull out of The Greenbrier earlier this month with a neck problem. He returned the following week to play the Scottish Open but failed to cash after rounds of 68-71. After sitting out last week's Open Championship he'll hope to have an edge on those who endured a testing five days at St. Andrews.
