For you golfers out there, you can probably skip this post
because you will already know the subject. For anyone else interested
in golf, but living under a rock for the last week, read on.
First, although young Hawaii golfer Michelle Wie did not make
the cut at this past weekend’s Sony Hawaiian Open Professional Golfers
Association (PGA) tournament, she is thanked for paving the way for a
new wave of young golfers, here and elsewhere. Without her pioneering
efforts, we might not be seeing local golfers like Kimberly Kim or
Another person who may have benefited from Wie’s way is
16-year-old Tadd Fujikawa. The young high school student was the
youngest golfer in 50 years to make the cut at a PGA event last week
after shooting rounds of 71 and 66. He followed that on Saturday with
another 66 but fell back on the final day to a two over par 72. Still,
this tied for 20th place, overall for the tournament.
Each of these golfers is making it easier for the next
generation to move a little closer to the dream of one day becoming the
best at what they do. Good luck to all and thank you for all the hours
of work it takes to be as good as you are.
