Hawaii teenager Tadd Fujikawa won for the first time on the mainland Saturday, earning a nine-shot victory in the eGolf Professional Tour's season finale.

Fujikawa closed with a 4-under 68 for a nine-shot victory in the eGolf Tour Championship. He earned $25,000 and finished among the top 20 on the mini-tour's money list. That means the tour will pay for his entry to Q-School on the PGA Tour.

Fujikawa, 19, turned pro with two years left in high school.

He first became known in 2006 as the youngest player at the time to qualify for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot. A year later at age 16, he tied for 20th in the Sony Open on the PGA Tour.
