Chubby Chandler: More good signs from Pete Uihlein

Several of our players are showing good form.
Four sub-70 rounds including a closing 66 brought a double dividend for Peter Uihlein at the Puerto Rico Open.
A share of fifth place secured an invite to this week's Shell Houston Open which Peter gladly accepted along with the opportunity to bid for an even greater prize.
The winner of the Houston event gains automatic entry to the following week's US Masters and what a tasty carrot that is for the in-form American.
Peter is finally free of the injuries which have stalled his development of late and now I feel he is ready to release all his enormous potential on the world stage.
I always felt a consistent run of events would be of major benefit and it's shown in his performances - the Puerto Rico result his fourth top-seven finish in just eight events.
I have a feeling it won't be long before he's back in the winner's enclosure and this time in his homeland.
Peter joins Lee Westwood in Houston and both should be confident of a good showing in the oil city.
Several of our players are showing good form and none more than Matt Wallace, whose third place at the Kenya Open was his best performance on the Challenge Tour to date.
