Playing out of the ninth-to-last threesome, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 60 Peter Uihlein smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to post 13-under 275, up 18 spots on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Uihlein finished a season-tying-best solo 5th, two swings short of a 3-man playoff won by overnight leader Bryson DeChambeau, and jumps 12 spots to a career-high 48th in OWGR.
This was the 28-year-old's second Memorial after T25 last year, which was tied second-best among 18 first-timers. He improves to 11-for-18 on the season with seven top 25s, three straight, and has now recorded eight consecutive sub-par rounds. The Jupiter, Florida, resident will notch his fourth top 10 of the season and potentially a third top 5, joining T5s at WGC-HSBC and the Wells Fargo two starts ago. For the week, he posted rounds of 69-70-70-66 with one eagle and 18 birdies against five bogeys and one double. The Oklahoma State product is currently ranked 8th in both SG: Off-the-Tee and SG: Approach, and 3rd in SG: Tee-to-Green (10.285). He carded six birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation with 27 total putts, and saved par three times from between five and 15 feet. Jun 3 - 1:21 PM

Peter Uihlein had a change of heart ahead of this week's Fort Worth Invitational, pulling his name from the field on Monday.

The PGA TOUR rookie sits at 66th place in the FedExCup leaderboard. He's posted finishes of T5 and T21 in his two most recent starts but he's decided to sit this week out, instead of riding the hot streak. Perhaps he committed to this event when his game was still slumping and now that's he's found some form he feels it's better to wait for a course that suits his eye. That's pure speculation, but one possible reason for this WD. If any definite news pops up then we will pass along an update but for now, gamers should remove Uihlein from all weekly lineups.

Peter Uihlein rallied late to record a 6-under-par 31-34=65 during the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, four off the torrid pace set by Marc Leishman.

Uihlein started his afternoon on the back nine and crawled out of the gate with two birdies and a bogey before making the turn. From there, he circled birdies on six of the next eight holes. It was largely due to ball-striking today as seven of his eight birdies came from inside nine feet. Uihlein flashed on the leaderboard in his most recent start, collecting a T5 at the Wells Fargo Championship. The PGA TOUR rookie went through a bit of a slump to start the 2018 calendar year but he may be rounding into form just in time to make a summer run and increase his value in the Rookie of the Year race. Uihlein currently ranks 69th in the FedExCup standings.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 66 Peter Uihlein backed up with an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship, dipping two spots to a season-tying-best T5 on 7-under 277, five shy of overnight leader and champion Jason Day, who shot 69.

This was the 28-year-old's 46th event (40 pro) and sixth top 10, just off his career mark of T4 at the 2015 Sanderson Farms. He's now 9-for-16 on the season with five top 25s and three top 10s, first since a T5 at the WGC-HSBC last fall. After kicking off in 72-72, one inside the cut line, the Oklahoma State product painted a week- and career-low 62 to move to T3. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered four (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.461 strokes off-the-tee. The Jupiter, Florida, resident carded two birdies at Nos. 3 and 7, cancelled by two bogeys at 4 (3-putt from 62'7") and 11 (3-putt from 44'10"). He posted a commercial 2.000 putts per GIR and 0.396 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. For the week, Uihlein, who's fourth alternate for THE PLAYERS, totaled one eagle and 12 birdies versus seven bogeys.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 66 Peter Uihlein painted a career-low, bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-32=62 on Moving Day at the Wells Fargo Championship, vaulting 46 places on the live leaderboard to solo 2nd on 7-under 206 and good for the low round of the week by three shots. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Uihlein is T3, three adrift of leader Jason Day, and will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with Bryson DeChambeau.

This was the Oklahoma State product's 122nd career round and betters a previous-best 64 at the 2018 CareerBuilder/R2 (finished T17). After opening in 72-72, he began T48 on 2-over, nine back of leader Peter Malnati. The 28-year-old hit seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.087 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.810 tee-to-green. He racked up seven birdies, including five straight at holes 5-9, adding eagle-3 at 10 from 14'3". The Jupiter, Florida, resident's split featured two conversions from between 10 and 32 feet, posting 1.467 putts per GIR and 3.407 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. His 62, one shy of the course record, is currently 8.217 strokes better than the field average today.

Peter Uihlein looks to get his season back on track as he turns his attention toward TPC San Antonio for this week's Valero Texas Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie opened the season with three top 20s in his first five starts. Since then, he is just 4-for-7 with nothing better than a T26 at the Farmers. He's lost strokes tee-to-green in four straight starts. Now he'll head back to a course where he's previously played once, missing the cut back in 2014. On paper, not a lot is lining up for Uihlein but his length and left-to-right shot shape should work well here at TPC San Antonio, providing a glimmer of hope. Gamers looking for a dark horse could give Uihlein a look but the safer route is to wait for the form to start simmering before reinvesting.

Peter Uihlein upset the top seed in Group 6, Rory McIlroy, winning 2-and-1 during round one of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The duo traded pars at the first but Uihlein circled a birdie at the second and never looked back. He did nearly all of his damage through the air, converting just one putt from outside 10 feet. McIlroy made it easy on him as he didn't pick up his first birdie until the par-5 12th. The Northern Irishman put his foot on the gas from there, rattling off five straight birdies to keep his hopes alive. It was too little too late for McIlroy as a par at the 17th ended the match. Uihlein is making his debut at this event but he's now in the driver's seat ahead of his Thursday matchup against Brian Harman.

Peter Uihlein goes to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill this week looking to continue his ascent.

Uihlein got back on track with a 37th-place finish at the WGC-Mexico Championship last time out after a missed cut at The Honda Classic. This will be his first visit to Bay Hill, and it could be a difficult task for a first-timer, especially against a star-studded field. Plenty of stars use this event as a springboard into The Masters next month. His ranks 44th in Driving Distance (302.9 yards) and 35th in Sand Save Percentage (55.56 percent), so those two areas could help him fair well. Bay Hill is a course of moderate length, and his ability off the tee could shorten those Par 5s and lead to plenty of birdie and eagle opportunities.

Peter Uihlein has removed himself from the field ahead of this week's Valspar Championship, boosting first alternate Seamus Power into the field.

Uihlein has played three straight events before this week. His results showed T26-MC-T37 at the Genesis, Honda, and WGC-Mexico. Given his final round in Mexico (4-under 67) this change of heart is likely due to scheduling, and not an injury. Gamers should remove Uihlein from all lineups this week. As a PGA TOUR rookie, Uihlein currently ranks 60th in the early FedExCup race.

Peter Uihlein moves on to the WGC-Mexico Championship this week looking to get on track after a missed cut at The Honda Classic last weekend.

Uihlein has been starting out pretty well lately, shooting 70 or better in the first round in five of the past seven events. It's generally Round 2 which has been dooming him lately, averaging 74.0 across the past four tournaments. If he can show a little more consistency, he might be a solid contrarian play this weekend. He is a big hitter off the tee, ranking 46th in Driving Distance (302.5). And he should find a few more yards on his drives playing well above sea level at Club de Golf Chapultepec. However, it has been his below-average scrambling and terrible putting holding him back so far this season.

Peter Uihlein raced out to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Making his tournament debut, Uihlein was not phased by a lack of course knowledge. Starting at Torrey Pines North, the Oklahoma State product pelted 17 greens in regulation. He rattled off a three-hole birdie train to help DFSers at holes 5 thru 7, but was calm otherwise. Uihlein couldn't catch fire with the flat stick today as he took 32 swipes with the putter by day's end. If Uihlein keeps striking it like today, he will definitely be sticking around near the top of the leaderboard all week.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 55 Peter Uihlein styled a career-low 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge, up 77 places on the live leaderboard to T11 on 10-under 134.

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course, the 28-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, smothering two squares at 12 and 2 with 10 birdies at 11, 13, 14, 16, 18 and five straight at 4-8. This was his 92nd career round on TOUR, brushing aside a previous-best 65 shot three times, most recently in R3 of the 2018 CIMB Classic. He opened with a three-birdie one-bogey 70 at La Quinta CC, so the Massachussetts native will tackle the Stadium Course in R3 on Saturday. Uihlien entered 2-for-4 on the season with two top 25s, both top 10s, including a T5 two starts ago at the WGC-HSBC.

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).

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.
