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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
