Youngest Player in 49 Years Makes PGA Cut: Four days after his 16th birthday, Tadd Fujikawa became the youngest person to make a PGA cut in a half century, finishing two rounds of the Sony Open at 3-under, one ahead of previous winner Vijay Singh. "I'm probably not going to win this tournament," said Fujikawa, who finished third in last year's Hawaii high school state golf championship.

How do you think Michelle Wie feels about this? I don't know. How does this affect Frank Tanana? Probably just about as relevant...

You have to like a kid who needs a birdie to make the cut and opts to drain an eagle for good measure. If only Lefty had that composure in the US Open last year......... Great story to kick off the 2007 season. Tiger who?

How do you think Michelle Wie feels about this? About this article, this thread, this website, the kid mentioned in the article, or your misguided statement?

Amazing - this kid finishes ahead of former POYs, Major Champions and hyped youngsters and what's it get him? 5 lousy comments. I didn't watch it, but he's a funny looking little dude (apparently had a tough start being born underweight and ill). A great story. Kudos to shooting consistent golf. Hope to hear more from him soon.

He finished with a final round 72 that put him in 20th place and would've earned $54K if he was a pro. That's an incredible accomplishment.

I did watch a little of the tournament, and have to say that the kid looks more like a jockey than a golfer. I look forward to seeing him in the future. Wonder where he'll play in college?

I would image he gained a ton of confidence and a wee bit of media recognition which will bode well for future endorsement money. Sorry but I have been a bit lazy today, anyone know how he qualified to play in the tournament?

I doubt he gets much media attention. He isnt a 6 ft chick. He is a 5 ft guy that is smaller with more game, big deal. He is supposed to have more game right? He was playing on the tour he was supposed to be, he's a guy.

He made Sportscenter, PTI and the ESPN web site, as evidenced by the link, yet the global conspiracy against the male gender continues unabated.

I doubt he gets much media attention. He isnt a 6 ft chick. Actually, I've seen him all over the place lately, including here. But hey, thanks for waking a thread that's been sleeping for nearly three days to lash out at a woman who, in all likelihood, has never done anything to you except being born with a vagina. Nice to hear from you, President of the He-Man Woman Hater's Club.
