Fujita at the top

CHASKA, Minn. – Didn’t have Hiroyuki Fujita in your office pool?

Neither did I.

Fujita took a share of the early lead Thursday morning at Hazeltine. Let’s get to know him.

Fujita has seven victories on the Japan Tour (including one this year) and tied for second behind Danny Lee at the European Tour’s Johnnie Walker Classic in February. He’s playing in his second PGA Championship (T-68 in 2008).

However, one stat sticks out: The 40-year-old Japanese player stands just 5-foot-5 and weighs 155 pounds.

Somewhere, Corey Pavin is smiling.
