Junior Round-up

Tadd Fujikawa of Honolulu, Hawaii, went undefeated last week at the John A. Burns Challenge Cup. The team format pitted amateurs versus professionals at the Mid-Pacific Country Club in Lanikai, Hawaii. After his second place finish at the 2005 Polo Golf Junior Classic, Fujikawa was ready to make his mark on the tournament. Although the professionals came out victorious for the tournament, the 14-year-old was able to keep his winning ways alive by topping 41-year-old Philip Chun. Fujikawa was the youngest golfer to ever play in the event’s 33-year history. Next, he will try to become the youngest player to qualify for a PGA Tour event when he will play for an exempt spot for the Sony Open in Hawaii.
