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. Apr 18 - 3:58 PM

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.

Making just the third start of his Web.com Tour career, Peter Uihlein posted four sub-70 rounds to hoist the hardware at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, a good enough haul to secure his PGA TOUR card for the upcoming season.

Uihlein had played in this event twice before, both times as an amateur. He missed the cut in the 2010 edition and returned the following year to finish T9. That was back when the event was hosted in July, not the first stop on the Web.com Tour Finals. This time around he improved his position in each round, finding himself T15, T6, and then T4 after the first three rounds before closing with a 6-under 65. World No. 74 has been happily spending his time overseas on the European Tour since 2012, but now he'll have full playing priviledges on the PGA TOUR. Uihlein already declared on Twitter that he'll maintain a European Tour schedule, which means he'll need to make the most of his Stateside starts when the season flips to the 2017-18 schedule. Growing up in America and still having a home base in Florida, Uihlein should have no troubles making a smooth transition.

Peter Uihlein charged down the back nine at Le Golf National, but his final round 3-under-par 37-31=68 was one shy of the target the winner Tommy Fleetwood had set on 11-under 273 in the Open de France.

The American claimed a third runner-up finish of his European Tour career, failing to add to his one victory despite a thrilling conclusion to his round. Entering the final day with a share of the lead he made back-to-back bogey-5s at 4 and 5 which he will rue when he dwells on his performance, but he recovered one shot immediately with birdie -3 at the 6th before making four straight pars. At that stage he seemed too far back to mount a challenge, but slowly he fought back. He made birdie-2 at the 11th, went back-to-back red at 13 and 14, then drained a birdie at 17, meaning a birdie-3 at the last would force a play-off. Alas he could only manage par. The result does, however, vault him to 8th in the Race to Dubai and he also won a spot in The Open.

Peter Uihlein completed a magnificent 18th hole up-and-down to hold onto a share of the 54-hole lead with Alexander Bjork at the Open de France after a third lap of level-par 37-34=71 gave him a total of 8-under 205 at Le Golf National.

On a tough day of scoring the American opened up with bogey-5 at the first before scratching 13 straight pars. He sole red number came next, his third birdie-4 of the week at No. 14, before the closed out with four more pars. On the last, however, he had to work for it after his drive found thick grass. He chopped out to 100-yards, then hit a fine wedge to kick-in range. The top two hold a one-stroke advantage over the dangerous trio of Thomas Pieters, Tommy Fleetwood and Andy Sullivan; in all 15 players are within four swings of the lead. Uihlein has held two solo 54-hole leads, finishing second both times. He’s never shared the lead at this stage.

Peter Uihlein dropped a 20’0" par putt on the 18th green to secure a share of the lead at the 36-hole stage of the Open de France; he carded a second round 4-under-par 34-33=67 for 8-under 134, tied with Adrian Otaegui and two clear of Tommy Fleetwood and Alexander Bjork.

The American has more reason than most to have been inspired in recent weeks. First he had the best seat in the house when watching Alex Noren’s victory charge at Wentworth in the BMW PGA Championship, then his one-time room-mate Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open. On Friday Uihlein was in superb form, notching birdies on the front nine at 3 and 9, then pegging three in a row at 13, 14 and 15. He dropped a shot at 17 to fall out of the solo lead, but then completed the par save on the last in near dark (after the threat of lightning had earlier caused a 125 minute delay). It is the fifth time he has held or shared the lead at halfway; he’s yet to convert the win from such a position.

Peter Uihlein crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in round one of the Open de France in Paris, settling just one shot behind clubhouse leaders Alexander Bjork and Nathan Kimsey.

That puts the American T3 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon session in play. Uihlein started from the 10th tee at Le Golf National today and made a steady start with four straight pars. He picked up his first shot at the par-5 14th and then got back on the par train and rode it for the next seven holes. The World No. 162 turned a decent day into a very good one with red circles at 4, 7 and 9. Uihlein has missed his last two cuts although they were back on home soil at the St. Jude Classic and U.S. Open. He currently slots in at 42nd on this year's Race to Dubai and this is the foundation for another good week.
