The suddenly forgotten teen

March 06, 2009

The buzz created recently by a trio of talented teenagers has shoved a fourth celebrated teen into the background, Hawaiian Tadd Fujikawa, 18, surrendering headlines to Rory McIlroy, 19, Danny Lee, 18, and Ryo Ishikawa, 17.

Ever so quietly, Fujikawa is about to make his second cut in two PGA Tour starts in 2009. Fujikawa had rounds of 71 and 71 at PGA National and appears well within the cut line at the Honda Classic. Fujikawa, who still attends high school, tied for 32nd at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January.
