Hawaii golfers in contention

By Duane Shimogawa - bio | email

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After a not so memorable 2009, Kaneohe's Dean Wilson is starting to get his game back on the PGA Tour.

A second place finish two weeks ago in Canada and now, the Castle Grad is in the hunt once again.

After two rounds at the Turning Stone Resort Championship in upstate New York, Wilson is currently tied for 14th place.

He fired a five-under-67 on Friday and is five shots behind the leader, Alex Cejka.

Tadd Fujikawa is playing some of the best golf of his young career this week. The 19-year-old followed Thursday's flawless eight-under-64 with a 66 today and has a commanding six shot lead heading into Saturday's final round of the E-Golf Tour Championship in Virginia.

The Moanalua grad is looking for his first career win outside of Hawaii and the $25,000 first-place prize.
