Ryo Ishikawa Works Towards US Open This Weekend

ゴルフ・笑顔の石川 ~ The Ishikawa Golf Smile
Ryo Ishikawa, may have certainly has the number one most charming smile in golf, but he currently sits at 53 in the World Golf Rankings... which means he'll need a top finish this weekend to be exempt for the US Open at Congressional in June. 

He's playing in the Totoumi Hamamatsu Open this week at Grandee Hamanako Golf Club in Shizuoka, and will go into the second round four back, in a tie for 29th on a crowded leaderboard.

With a scorecard that featured six birdies and two bogies, the teenaged superstar's 68 reflected a "rough driver" and "the touch of exquisite putting" as my Japanese friend put it in an email she sent me this morning.

We'll keep you posted on the results throughout the weekend. As you can imagine we're hoping to see Ryo on the roster at Congressional in June... and I know we're not the only ones.
