Chelsea-Gates-Peter-Uihlein-

We chatted with 2010 U.S. Amateur Champion and European Tour pro Peter Uihlein last Friday — it was one of those rare days when he was actually at home in Jupiter, Florida, where he lives with his girlfriend Chelsea and his dog Bagger.

Pete talks with us about his first trip internationally as a pro in India, playing the Challenge Tour and European Tour, and his plans to compete in the Web.com Tour playoffs to try and earn his PGA Tour card for next season.

Check it out after the jump! (There’s also list of time stamps where we addressed specific topics.)

The golf world reacted via social media with outrage and harsh words Sunday evening during the final round of the ANA Inspiration, the first women’s major of the year. This is yet another incident of golf getting in its own way and looking stupid and lame to casual sports fans who already have that impression of the game.

Walking off the 12th green with the lead, Lexi Thompson was informed she was receiving a four-shot penalty for infractions from the third round. A TV viewer notified the LPGA via email that Thompson had marked her ball and improperly replaced it before tapping-in a one-footer on the 17th hole a day earlier. She received two strokes for the incorrect ball placement and then another two shots for signing an incorrect scorecard — the whole situation was absurd, but the latter was more flagrant since she didn’t know at the time.

Despite Lexi’s impressive ability to fight back and respond with back-to-back birdies after receiving the devastating news, she eventually lost in an one-hole playoff to So Yeon Ryu. In other words, this retroactive, unbelievably delayed infraction late in the final round of a major championship cost Thompson the major title.

With the dust storms of Qatar but a distant and unpleasant memory, the cream of the European Tour descended on a defenceless Emirates Golf Club this morning for the first round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Uihlein sets his sights toward Europe

College and amateur standout Peter Uihlein, the youngest son of Acushnet chief Wally Uihlein, announced Monday his intention to turn pro, instead of finishing his final semester at Oklahoma State University. Uihlein, who captured the 2010 U.S. Amateur at Chambers Bay and played on two Walker Cup teams, will kick off his career exclusively in Europe, playing on sponsor’s exemptions on the European Tour, along with its developmental Challenge Tour.

The victorious Great Britain & Ireland team capture the Cup

With the US Open tennis and NFL’s opening weekend, I’m not sure how many of you kept up with the Walker Cup, contested at Royal Aberdeen in Scotland. From what I saw in the highlights on Golf Central, I wish I’d caught more of the coverage, or heck, been at the matches.
