    Uihlein was a well renowned junior and amateur player. He was a member of the United States Walker Cup team in 2009 where he won four matches in four attempts on the way to a US victory. In 2010 he became the number one player in the amateur World Rankings after finishing in second place at both the NCAA Individual Championship and the Big 12 Championship. He would go on to claim victory at the US Amateur on the day of his 21st birthday. He turned pro in 2011 after receiving the Ben Hogan award for being the best college golfer.

    He started his pro career by playing on the Challenge Tour (second tier Tour in Europe). He had six top 10 finishes in his first season, finishing the year 26th in the rankings and hence securing his full European Tour card. He won his first pro event in his rookie season at the Madeira Islands Open. He won the title by two strokes. He would go on to lose out to David Howell in a play-off at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship a few months later. Uihlein had a further runner-up finish and ended the year 14th on the money list and was named as the Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year.

    He has struggled to recapture the form of his rookie season. In 2014 he finished 65th on the money list having only two top 10s.
