Peter's a top 10 hit

Peter's a top 10 hit

There’s a big gap between being one of the world’s top amateurs and a touring professional, but Peter Uihlein is making the transition.

After a relatively quiet start following his arrival into the paid ranks, Peter has now paid his dues and is reaping the benefits of what he has learned in Europe and elsewhere.

Four rounds in the 60s – a fine achievement in itself – was enough to secure Peter fourth place in the inaugural Tshwane Open – his best performance on the European Tour.

Now I think Peter will train on faster than he already has and will be keen to impress when he has a shot on the PGA Tour this week in Puerto Rico.

Also top 10 hits in South Africa were Romain Wattel and David Howell, while James Kingston’s closing 65, the second lowest of the day, pushed him into 16th alongside Ross McGowan, who is thankfully clear of the injuries which have blighted his recent seasons.

Strong performances were also recorded by Lee Westwood and Charl Schwartzel at the Honda Classic and they will be looking to build on their top 10's at this week’s WGC event in Doral, which will also feature debuts there for both Chris Wood and George Coetzee.
