Tadd Fujikawa 2007

Tadd Fujikawa’s 2007 Sony Open started relatively quietly with a 1 over par 71 still he posted the lowest round of any of the golfers from Hawaii. Round two was a completely different story - that’s when the magic began as Tadd went on to make the cut becoming the youngest player in 50 years to do so. And on Sunday Tadd became the youngest player ever to finish in the top 20 on the PGA Tour.
