Honolulu’s Tadd Fujikawa, who just missed gaining one of four spots in the Sony Open in Hawaii Monday qualifier, received an exemption anyway.
Fujikawa, who tied for 20th in 2007 and tied for 32nd in 2009, will tee off at 1:20 p.m. Thursday off the first tee.
In Monday’s qualifier, Fujikawa shot a 69, finishing a stroke out of a playoff for one of the spots. Leilehua and Hawaii-Hilo alum Nick Mason won the qualifier with a 67.
Another Hawaii golfer Parker McLachlin, a Punahou and UCLA alum, also received a Sony exemption.
