The Monday Recap: Uihlein and Korda

Peter Uihlein, a former IMG Academies pupil and current U.S. Amateur champ, didn't finish strong at the Transitions Championship over the weekend.

Uihlein made the cut in the PGA Tour event held at Innisbrook's tricky Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor.

However, he failed to break par in the third or fourth rounds.

Uihlein did have a chance on Sunday to improve his position, but a double bogey on No. 13 and a bogey on No. 17 gave him a second consecutive 72 and a tie for 57th.

The tournament served as a tuneup for the Masters, which gave an invite to Uihlein since he won the U.S. Amateur last year.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Jessica Korda's struggles on the LPGA Tour continued.

The newly-turned 18 year old failed to make the cut at the RR Donnelly Founders Cup.

The Bradenton resident played in the LPGA Tour's first two events - both invitationals in Asia - to begin her rookie campaign.

Those tournaments did not have a cut, yet Korda has failed to crack 70 in 10 competitive rounds thus far.

She shot 74 in the opening round, but soared to 77 in the second round to miss the cut.

Honorary Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club member and Pendleton School alum Paula Creamer finished second in the tournament.

She finished at 11-under par - one stroke behind winner Karrie Webb - to earn $85,110 alongside Brittany Lincicome.
