Uihlein can build on decent start at Southwind

Globetrotter can win threeball at the St Jude Classic

Peter Uihlein can win his Friday threeball at TPC Southwind
1 of 1

Day Two
Sky Sports 4 from 9pm Friday

Golf punters enter tricky territory as the St Jude Classic enters its second day, mainly because it is the US Open next week and those who aren't in the running to make the cut can be excused for turning their attention to the second Major of the year.

Any stragglers could be hot-footing it to Erin Hills at the earliest opportunity but expect Peter Uihlein to still have a couple of days of business to attend to before he makes the trip to Wisconsin.

Many cut-casualties will already be on the plane before Uihlein starts his threeball at 7.50pm BST, but he should be confident of building on a two-under-par 68 on Thursday.

He should be able to claim his trip from Tennessee on the air miles he has chalked up playing in tournaments all over the world this year, but Uihlein can be confident having made all 13 cuts in his worldwide outings in 2017.

The man from Massachusetts, who is due to line up in his first US Open since 2011 next week, has finished fifth, 23rd and 25th in his three US Tour events this year, so should be able to flourish in his current company.

If he can hit a few more fairways at TPC Southwind, he should maintain his place among the chasing pack.

He looks a good bet at evens to get the better of playing partners Bryson DeChambeau and Hiroshi Iwata.

The quirky DeChambeau has struggled on the Tour this year, making just three of his last 14 cuts, including none of his last six.

It is difficult to see him making much of an impression, despite an opening 69, while Iwata endured a miserable Thursday with a seven-over-par 77, from which it will take a great deal of recovering.
