Fujikawa still fourth after second-round 69

By Star-Advertiser staff


Hawaii 19-year-old Tadd Fujikawa shot a second-round 69 yesterday to remain fourth in the PGA Tour Q-School's first stage at The Club at Irish Creek, in Kannapolis, N.C.

Fujikawa is at 5-under-par 137 for the 72-hole qualifier, which has 77 players.

At Dayton, Nev., Leilehua and Hawaii-Hilo alum Nick Mason dropped into a tie for 33rd. Mason shot a second-round 71 and is at 3-under 141 at Dayton Valley Country Club. He was 3-over for the day after his first eight holes.

At the weather-delayed first stage in Santee, Calif., Maui's Samuel Cyr finished his first-round 73, then went right back out and fired a 7-under 65 yesterday. He is second among the 17 players who have finished two rounds. Former Pearl and Hawaii State Open champ Jesse Mueller, from Arizona, opened with a 69 but did not finish his second round.

The top 23 and ties from each of the three events advance to second stage next month. Hawaii will host its first PGA Q-School first stage next week at Turtle Bay.
