Fujikawa wins Pearl Open

It's just about official now. Tadd Fujikawa is the best player who hasn't graduated high school in Hawaii. Also, he is currently paying for his own expenses as he holds onto his amateur status to finish out his junior career.

After the first big story of 2007, his making the cut at the Sony Open, Tadd was ready to make news again. With his name and story popping up on The Golf Channel more frequently than another young Hawaiian star, Tadd was ready to rock the game again. That chance came.

Fujikawa won the Pearl Open, a professional golf tournament in Hawaii, after firing three rounds in the 60's. The 54 hole event gave Tadd his first victory in a professional event. Of course, he couldn't collect the check at the finish line as he retained his amateur status.

Not bad for a 16 year old. Of course, he also happened to best Vijay Singh at last month's Sony Open of Hawaii. So what does this all mean? Wie looks to be out of the spotlight for a little while. Fujikawa will continue to play at an extremely high level unless the increasing pressure gets to him. At this point, it looks like Tadd has no problem with the attention.
