KAHUKU (KHNL) - You've heard of Tadd. You've heard of Michelle. Now meet the Finau's. The two teen brothers recently signed on to represent Turtle Bay Resort as they pursue their professional careers. And even though they didn't grow up in the Islands, they're proud to represent their heritage.

"Coming back to Hawaii feels like we're home, and our parents grew up here and we came every summer to play golf here and we're really excited to return," said 18 year old Gipper Finau.

Older brother Tony, and younger brother Gipper have been called two of the best golfers in the country under the age of 25.

The duo even impressed former University of Hawaii head coach June Jones as they drove the ball over 360 yards at his charity tournament last week.

"I've never seen anything like I saw playing golf with these two guys the last couple days. We call it, it. They've got it," said Jones.

The three year deal to represent Turtle Bay will allow the brothers to play, practice, and train at the North Shore resort. And they couldn't be happier with their deal.

"Turtle bay is one of our dream courses growing up, but we've never been able to play it. We're excited now," said the Finau brothers.

Plus the Islands make a great winter home for the up and coming pros.

"In Utah it snows six months out of the year, so the contract work out perfectly for us, we'll be here all winter," said 19 year old Tony.
