21 years after watching Tiger tame the Masters, former West High star gets his shot
I follow Tony's every shot each tournament on pgatour.com and cringe - as
I'm sure he does - when he misses a putt of 7 feet or less. I agree
Augusta National suits his game, but I really believe the most important shot
requiring extra focus is the short putt. If 2 or even 1 short putt is missed it
probably means not winning the tournament. Here's hoping Tony
makes every short putt and wins this week!!!Tiger rarely if ever
misses a short putt. You gotta like his style.

Free of referees, judgment calls, bias, and fixes.The Masters, the
greatest sporting event in the world. Go Tony!!!
judgment calls??? Hardly, ask DJ about judgement calls on a patch of sand they
called a bunker.
Godspeed to Tony and Gipper, on and off the course.
Tony good luck. I will be there on Sunday cheering you on. Ofa Atu!!
Best of luck to him this week and I'll be rooting for Tony Finau---who is
not just a "great role model for the Poly community" but is a great role
model for any youngster who knows his name and hears his story. And maybe some
of their parents as well.
Great story on the importance of a strong family unit. The neighborhood was
tough, but the love inside their home was more powerful than drugs or gangs.
Hard working parents taught their children to dream big, and then work hard. 1.
Listen 2. Be serious 3. Don't quit. I think Tony is right, his dad is a
genius, and his mom an inspiration. Good luck at the masters.
Great article. Great Kid. Look for him every week on the leaderboard. Go Tony!
I've met Tony on two occasions and found him to be genuine, gracious and
friendly. I love to follow the PGA Tour and every week I pay close
attention to Tony's results. This week will be especially fun to watch
Tony at the Masters. Best wishes to Tony and his family.
Always exciting to see Tony Finau play. He can blow you away pulling off
incredible eagles. It was exciting to hear he is so well respected and humble
while playing the game. A class act.
So proud of this young man. Wishing him the very best in the Master's this
year. Golf is truly the only sport that guarantees the best longevity of all
the professional sports. Hope his younger brother makes it to the PGA sometime
soon too. Such great role models for the poly community. Thanks for sharing.
I met Kelepi at the Utah High School championships at the Cottonwood Heights
golf course when Gipper was just a Freshman -- and first round leader. I
followed Tony when he shot a 62 and won the event!I followed the
young men as they played on The Big Break, with Tony taking second. I cheered
on Gipper earlier this year in a qualifying round for the Web.com Tour here in
Louisiana.What a great story! And what a super family! God bless
these young men!
Good luck Tony. All of Utah are pulling for you! Thanks for your great example
