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. Jan 18 - 3:32 PM

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.

Peter Uihlein withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic during his opening round, citing a neck injury.

Uihlein, who was competing on a sponsor exemption, completed 11 holes in birdie-free 4-over-par. He walked off after a par at the par-4 11th. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 17 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Scottish Open. The European Tour member is 56th in the Race to Dubai standings.

Peter Uihlein makes his way back stateside for this week's Travelers Championship.

This world traveler is making his first start in North America since a missed cut at the Puerto Rico Open in March. In that time, he's 5-for-6 internationally, including a pair of top 10s. Initially on a similar path at Brooks Koepka, it has taken Uihlein a bit longer to breakthrough. The talent level is still through the roof, so gamers should pay close attention to Uihlein this week.

Peter Uihlein heads to Real Club de Golf El Prat this week to contest his third Open de España.

The globetrotting American missed the cut at PGA Catalunya last year but finished T8 on his tournament debut at Parador de El Saler in 2013 after holding the lead through 36 holes. Uihlein admitted he was trying to implement swing changes ahead of his recent two-week jaunt to the Far East but he still managed to score impressively, finishing T4 in the Shenzhen International and T8 in the Volvo China Open. He hit just 50% of fairways in both events so his driving remains a work in progress.

A walk-off eagle-3 at the 18th moved Peter Uihlein into tied second place after two rounds of the Volvo China Open.

The American's big finish at 18 propelled him to a 5-under-par 32-35=67 at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club and at 7-under 137 he's just a shot behind leader Julien Quesne. Uihlein rode a red-hot short game to stay in the mix. He managed to find just 7 (of 14) fairways and only 10 greens in regulation but went 7-for-8 in scrambling. The 25-year-old opened up with two straight birdies and added another pair at 8 and 9. He found another at 12 but bogeys at 10 and 16 cost him momentum until he drained his putt for eagle at 18.

Despite a late wobble, Peter Uihlein enjoyed an impressive opening round at the Volvo China Open at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club.

The American, who took T4 in last week's Shenzhen International, carded a 2-under-par 32-38=70 to sit just two off the clubhouse lead. Uihlein revealed last week that he'd switched coaches and his swing was a work in progress so today's 70 is more money in the bank. He burst out of the traps by shooting 32 on his opening nine but then ran into trouble with a bogey at five and a double bogey-6 at the sixth. Credit to him, therefore, for making a birdie two at the next and parring in. Overall his numbers from tee-to-green were impressive as he found 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation.

Peter Uihlein finished two shots out of a playoff at the Shenzhen International after only managing an even-par 36-36=72 in the final round.

The American couldn't get off the par train in his closing lap at Genzon GC, shooting just one birdie and one bogey during a frustrating day in China that left him on 10-under 278 and in a seven-way tie for fourth. He gave this honest assessment afterwards. "It was my first tournament trying to do some new stuff with my swing. I'll take it. It's one of those things that might take a little while under pressure to get used to." Uihlein, the halfway leader, split just 12 (of 28) fairways over his final 36 holes so it's fair to view him as a work in progress.

Peter Uihlein toured Genzon GC in 4-under-par 35-33=68 to move into top spot at the midpoint of the Shenzhen International.

The American birdied his final hole to reach 9-under 135 and overtake Kiradech Aphibarnrat by a shot. Uihlein, who revealed he switched coaches recently, did the bulk of his good work on the par 5s, circling birdies at all four. He added one further par breaker at 6 and swallowed his only bogey of the day at 15. The 25-year-old split 9 (of 14) fairways -- two more than in his opening round -- and found 13 greens in regulation. He's held the 36-hole lead on four previous occasions on the European Tour/Challenge Tour but gone backwards on the weekend each time, never finishing better than T8. The 2013 European Tour rookie of the year says he plans to keep it simple over the last two rounds. "I don't have much going on upstairs, just spacing out, doing my own thing and sticking to my own game plan," he said. "I don't really change it very often. It worked the first couple days so I’ll see how it goes from there."

Peter Uihlein birdied the final three holes to shoot 5-under-par 36-31=67 in the first round of the Shenzhen International.

The American is one of the class acts in this field but his pre-tournament odds reflected recent struggles. Uihlein started slowly with two bogeys in the first four holes but rallied after that and par breakers at 14, 16, 17 and 18 gave him the early clubhouse lead. "I'm definitely pleased," the told "I played Thailand, and had to withdraw with food poisoning, then played one in Puerto Rico, and then I had a wrist injury and had to take some time off. Then I switched coaches, so I’ve had a strange six weeks or so. I feel like I did a lot of things really, really well and I felt like I did some of my old habits and hit a couple squirrelers, but I'm pleased with five under, for sure." He hit 14 greens in regulation despite splitting only 7 (of 14) fairways.

Peter Uihlein makes his first start on the European Tour since pulling out of the True Thailand Classic with food poisoning.

The American lines up in this week's inaugural Shenzhen International in China and tees off in the first group out at 0630 local time. Since his WD in Thailand, Uihlein has played just once, missing the cut in the Puerto Rico Open. He also failed to cash at this venue, Genzon GC, when it staged last year's Volvo China Open although he did card an opening 69. One positive is that he's played well in China before, finishing fifth in the 2013 BMW Masters.
