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. May 12 - 5:58 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 10:44 AM

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."
Apr 17 - 5:22 AM

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 Europeantour.com. "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.
Apr 16 - 5:29 AM

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.
Apr 14 - 4:42 AM

Peter Uihlein reached the break of the Puerto Rico Open in 6-over-par 77-73=150, missing the cut by four strokes.

He was a popular selection in many formats this week, but the non-member failed to fulfill the hope. He found only 12 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Uihlein managed just four birdies while incurring six bogeys and a pair of double bogey-7s. Other notables that failed to survive the cut include: 147--Spencer Levin ... 150--S.J. Park ... 151--Bryce Molder ... 153--Nicholas Thompson.
Mar 6 - 6:49 PM

Peter Uihlein withdrew from the True Thailand Classic before his third round due to an illness.

Early morning in the U.S. on Friday, Uihlein alerted his followers on Twitter that he had food poisoning. He was 5-under 69-70=139 at the midpoint of the tournament at Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin, just six strokes off the 36-hole lead. He's currently not scheduled to compete anywhere over the next few weeks, but we'll probably see him a time or two on the upcoming Florida Swing.
Feb 13 - 10:17 PM

Peter Uihlein will continue to broaden his horizons with a first start in Thailand as the European Tour pitches up in Hua Hin this week.

The American has arrived to contest the True Thailand Classic at Black Mountain after two strong weeks. Uihlein made a fast start before finishing T16 in the Dubai Desert Classic and last Sunday took a share of 13th spot in the Maybank Malaysian Open. He remains on a learning curve in Asian Tour events but in Malaysia he cracked the top 20 for the first time in five attempts so is starting to solve the puzzle. A title challenge could be imminent.
Feb 10 - 11:52 AM

Peter Uihlein spun a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic to stay in the hunt.

Uihlein's lap of the Emirates included six birdies but was tempered by three bogeys as he reached 10-under at halfway -- three behind leader Marc Warren. The American made a routine birdie at the 10th, his opening hole, and added another at 16 before suffering a disappointing bogey at the short 359-yard par-4 17th for the second day running. He played the Emirates' front nine in just 30 in round one but couldn't quite repeat the magic on Friday. Although he circled birdies at two, five, six and seven, he suffered bogeys at the fourth and ninth.
Jan 30 - 6:39 AM

Peter Uihlein shot 30 on the front nine before settling for a 7-under-par 30-35=65 and tied second spot after the opening round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Uihlein seemed set to finish the day looking down on the field after bursting into the lead with eight birdies and no bogeys through 13 holes. But he stalled near the finish, dropped a shot at 17 and ended the round one stroke behind Bernd Wiesberger. The American was irresistible on his opening nine as he circled birdies at each of the first three holes and added two more at seven and eight. There was no let-up as he splashed more red at 10, 11 and 13 but he made four pars and a bogey from the 14th, a stretch that Wiesberger played in 4-under. Today's round marks a change in fortunes for Uihlein at the Emirates as he's missed his two previous cuts in this event.
Jan 29 - 9:02 AM

Peter Uihlein outshone U.S. compatriot Rickie Fowler to move into contention at the halfway mark of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Uihlein's 4-under-par 33-35=68 elevated him into tied fourth place on 9-under -- seven better than Fowler, who toiled on day two. It's no surprise to see Uihlein excel as he's played on the European Tour for the last two seasons, winning the 2013 Madeira Islands Open. He went bogey-free in the second round, circling three birdies on the front nine and another at 16. Uihlein, whose only bogey so far has come at the par-5 10th, goes into the weekend four behind leader Martin Kaymer.

In one of the quieter midseason rebounds, Peter Uihlein shook off a terrible stretch by rolling together 10 consecutive paydays into November.

Seemingly tied to buddy Brooks Koepka in every conversation a year ago at this time, Uihlein faded from our focus primarily due to a back injury. It reached critical mass when the discomfort forced him to withdraw during the BMW PGA Championship in late May. It was the eighth of 11 straight starts without a paycheck. Finally, in mid-August, a T78 in Denmark was exponentially more valuable than the earnings as it triggered the aforementioned streak of 10 cuts made that featured six top 25s. He finished the European Tour season at 65th in the Race to Dubai. Meanwhile, a career-best T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship yielded 68.333 non-member FedExCup points and $165,333.34 in non-member earnings. To qualify for Special Temporary Membership in 2014-15, he needs to collect 322.760 FedExCup points. That's a long way off for the 25-year-old, but he's garnered our attention again.

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.
