Weekend wrap-up (September 30)

European Tour
Peter Uihlein made headlines on the European Tour as he fired a 12-under-par 60 in the second round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Uihlein, who came close to becoming the first player to shoot a 59 on the European Tour, carded eight birdies and two eagles during the round. He ultimately lost in a two-hole playoff to David Howell, finishing in second at 23-under-par 265.

A four-time Rolex Junior All-American, Uihlein recorded six career AJGA victories including the 2007 FJ Invitational and was named Rolex Junior Player of the Year in both 2005 and 2007. He posted top Invitational finishes including the 2005 HP Boys Junior Championship (4th), 2005 Thunderbird International Junior (3rd) and the 2006 Rolex Tournament of Champions where he finished runner-up. A 2008 high school graduate, Uihlein went on to win the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship.

Uihlein’s collegiate career at Oklahoma State University was highlighted by runner-up finishes at the Big 12 Championship and NCAA Championship during his sophomore season. In 2009, he represented the United States in the Walker Cup, posting a 4-0 record on the victorious U.S. squad. After winning the Ben Hogan Award during his junior year, he turned professional in December 2011.

Chesson Hadley closed with a 1-under-par 69 for a two-shot victory at the Web.com Tour Championship. Hadley finished at 10-under-par 270 on the TPC Sawgrass Dye’s Valley Course.

During his AJGA career, Hadley recorded six top-15 finishes including victories at the Hargray Junior Classic and Golf Pride Junior Classic, both in 2005. The two-time Rolex Junior All-American appeared in the quarterfinals of the 2005 Polo Golf Junior Classic, losing to Philip Francis, 2 and 1.

He competed for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets where he totaled 11 top-10 finishes and two victories during his career.

John Peterson finished two shots behind Hadley in a tie for second to win the Web.Com Finals money title. His place at the top of the list guarantees him full status on the PGA TOUR next year and a spot in The Players Championship.

A 2007 Rolex Junior All-American, Peterson tallied eight top-15 showings highlighted by a victory at the 2007 Fidelity Investments Junior Championship and a T8 finish at the 2006 HP Boys Junior Championship (HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods).

Peterson went on to compete at LSU where he was a three-time All-American and crowned the 2011 NCAA Individual Champion. His collegiate career included two tournament victories and 12 top-five finishes.
