Uihlein, the 2010 U.S. Amateur champion, has decided to turn professional and join the European Tour, the Golf Week reports. He'll use a sponsor's exemption to play in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
On his 21st birthday Uihlein won the 110th U. S. Amateur Championship today, 4&2, over David Chun. Uihlein has qualified for playing at the 2011 U. S. Open, the British Open and probably will receive an invitation to the Masters. Chun qualifies for the U. S. Open and will probably get a Masters invite.
