Saturday, January 17, 2009. (AP) -- Eighteen-year-old high school senior Tadd Fujikawa delivered the best round of his life in the Sony Open in Hawaii Saturday.

He made birdies on half of his holes for an 8-under 62 that leaves him two shots out of the lead.

Zach Johnson played bogey-free for a 65 and finished atop a leaderboard so crowded that a dozen players are separated by three shots. That gives just about anyone a chance to win, even an 18-year-old senior in high school.

Johnson was at 10-under 200, one shot ahead of David Toms, Shigeki Maruyama, Brian Gay and Nathan Green.

Fujikawa is tied for sixth, two shots behind. Friday, he made the cut on the PGA Tour for the first time as a pro.
