Who's Your Taddy?
By Kickntrue on 10/22/09
Remember Tadd Fujikawa? He's going through Q-School, which just started in Florida this week.
Tadd Fujikawa has faced long odds from the moment he was born, 3 1/2 months premature and so tiny his parents could hold him in one hand. He might be one of the few who can put the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament into perspective.Then- once playing with the elite of the elite who aren't quite on Tour, they battle it out for just a couple spots on next year's big boy circuit. It's brutal and frankly Tadd's chances are quite slim. Still- you have to root for him.
Actually, when a story gets built up like Tadd's has over the past couple of years- you actually do have to root for him. It's actually annoying when sports situations come to this. It's easy to root against Kobe Bryant, or heck, even Tiger Woods- but you can't root against Brett Favre the week after his dad died. Of course, Brett has long since lost his untouchable status, but you get the point. Rooting against Tadd Fujikawa is like saying you hate babies or want to kick puppies- you just can't do it.

i don't like babies and i'll root against him, just watch me
actually I hope he plays well
4 under 68 today, tied for fourth
He more than held his own at the Sony Open (it is his home course though), so I would expect him to have a fighting chance.
