Tadd Fujikawa was born on this day in 1991. He is a Japanese American professional golfer. Playing as an amateur at age 15, he qualified for the 2006 US Open, the youngest golfer ever to do so. In 2007, he made the cut in a PGA Tour event at the Sony Open in Hawaii. At the age of 16 years, 4 days, he was the second youngest player to ever achieve that feat.
Fujikawa was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was born three months premature and doctors gave him a 50-50 chance of survival. He weighed 1 pound, 15 ounces and was so small that he could fit in his grandfather’s palm. His parents worried that he would grow up with a mental disability. Partially as a result of his premature birth, at age 18 Fujikawa stood 5 feet 1 inch/1.55 m tall. As of March 2007 he stated his weight was 150 pounds.
