3 local golfers survive to play weekend
McLachlin shoots another 70 at Colonial to remain 7 shots back
All three local golfers will get paid this weekend after surviving the cut in their respective professional golf tournaments.
Honolulu's Parker McLachlin, fresh off a top-five finish at last week's AT&T Classic, shot a second consecutive 70 yesterday for a 36-hole total of even-par 140 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Tied for 34th, seven strokes off the pace set by Phil Mickelson, McLachlin began yesterday's round with back-to-back birdies. He had two more birdies at Nos. 11 and 16 to go with four bogeys.
Kaneohe native Dean Wilson also made the Colonial cut with a 1-under 69 yesterday for a two-day total of 1-over 141. He is tied for 52nd entering the weekend after carding four birdies and three bogeys yesterday.
Moanalua High's Tadd Fujikawa made it through to the weekend at the Munsingwear Open KSB Cup with an even-par 72 yesterday in the Japan Golf Tour event. The 17-year-old began today's third round tied for 37th, 10 shots off the pace.
He shot a 1-under 71 today to finish 3 under for the tournament after 54 holes. He is tied for 36th entering the final round. This marks the second straight Japan Golf Tour event where Fujikawa has made the cut.
