Fujikawa Victorious at Hawaii Pearl Open

RSS

HONOLULU -- A month after becoming the youngest player in 50 years to make a PGA Tour cut, 16-year-old Tadd Fujikawa shot a 4-under 68 on Sunday to win the Hawaii Pearl Open at Oahu's Pearl Country Club.
 
Fujikawa birdied two of the final three holes to finish the 54-hole tournament at 11-under 205. Hawaii professional Greg Meyer (67) was second.
 
Meyer, a four-time Pearl Open champion, collected the first-place check of $12,000 because Fujikawa is an amateur. Japanese professionals Azuma Yano and Yoshinobu Tsukada tied for third at 8 under.
 
Fujikawa, a Moanalua High School sophomore, started the day in fourth place after rounds of 69 and 68.
