Lori Fujikawa is the mother of 16-year-old golfing phenom Tadd Fujikawa, who just made history by becoming the second youngest player ever to make a PGA cut. Mrs. Fujikawa works at an auto body shop, doing clerical work, but she also serves as Tadd’s one and only swing coach. That’s right: swing coach.

This is absolutely mind-boggling. Just think about it for a few seconds: Michelle Wie, who’s 6’1″, has had the best swing coaches around, from Gary Gilchrist to Mr. David Leadbetter, but over the past 3 years, she’s gotten further away from making a PGA cut. Then there’s Tadd Fujikawa, who’s only 5’1″, has only had mom as swing coach, yet the kid not only makes a PGA cut, but he finishes 20th at the Sony Open. (More from USAToday)
