Fabulous story and great round of golf. Hopefully, Tadd, can finish strong, and use this as a further stepping stone in his pro career, whatever the outcome. Making a cut, and carding 62, is a "Win" already...

Maybe, of greater note to Hawaii golf, Fujikawa, as Zach Johnson and at least one other competitor said after the round yesterday, "Earned being there"... Good to see a young, upstart, local golfer perform at that level and "Belong" as opposed to the Dog and Pony Show opportunity afforded Michelle Wie with the sponsor exemption, that almost, ruined the credibility of the tournament, in pursuit of hype, and a bit more exposure, for an event becoming less and less relevant. Tadd could be playing for the credibility of Hawaii golf and the heritage of the "Hawaiian Open" given the mess that was created to put Wie in the spotlight... Good luck to him today!
