Uihlein holds 2-up lead through first 18

__UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASH.--So far,Peter Uihlein's 21st birthday has been pretty enjoyable. Through 18 holes of the U.S. Amateur final at Chambers Bay GL, the Oklahoma State junior holds a 2-up lead over__David Chung.

Uihlein shot the equivalent of a 66, with normal match-play concessions, making five birdies and an eagle chip-in on the par-5 18th from 40 feet. It helped end a run by Chung, who had cut Uihlein's 3-up advantage after nine holes to 1 up when he won the 11th and 17th holes with birdie.

Chung started slowly, making bogeys on three of his first six holes, missing several putts inside 10 feet. On the back nine, however, Chung got the putter going, making five birdies yet only cut Uihlein's advantage by one hole.
