Junior Round-up


Peter Uihlein is ranked No. 3 in the Polo Golf Rankings

Peter Uihlein of Bradenton, Fla., was victorious last weekend at the St. Augustine Amateur. His 67-67-72-206 was enough to vault him to the lead and land him in a sudden-death playoff with New England Amateur Champion Brad Valois. The 2005 Rolex Junior Player of the Year became the second consecutive junior to win this event after Arnond Vongvanij, also of Bradenton, won it last year.
