Fujikawa leads by two Wie two back in Kia
Honolulu's Tadd Fujikawa shot a 2-under-par 70 yesterday to maintain a two-stroke lead after the third round and will go after his first eGolf Professional Tour victory today at the Golf in Morocco Classic.
Fujikawa, who is at 13-under 202, had an eagle, three birdies and three bogeys at Columbia Country Club in Blythewood, S.C.
"I honestly hit just two fairways — Nos. 3 and 9. I had a bunch of blocks and a bunch of pull hooks," Fujikawa said in a story at the Tour's Web site. "If you're missing it one way all day, it's OK but I hit a few left and then started playing mind games with myself."
Frank Adams III shot a 69 and was at 204. Chris Baker (71) was at 205, followed by James Sacheck (66) and Matt McQuillan (72) at 206.
Fujikawa, a 19-year-old Moanalua High alum, eagled the par-5 No. 3, birdied the par-4 No. 4 and bogeyed the par-3 No. 5 to make the turn at 2 under. On the back nine, he bogeyed Nos. 10 and 16 — both par-4s — and birdied the par-4 No. 11 and par-3 No. 14.
"I'm going to get a good rest tonight for sure, but hopefully come back tomorrow and get it back," Fujikawa said.
Fujikawa is 4 for 4 in cuts on the eGolf Tour this year. He is 12th on the tour's money list with $11,660.
