Fujikawa 27 posted a picture to Instagram accompanied by a caption explaining his decision to come out. He told Outsports that he had not come out to anyone in the professional golf world until Tuesday’s post. “The love and support have been overwhelming” he said.
“By providing this opportunity and shining a brighter light on this important segment of the sport we expect role models to emerge who will help inspire a new generation of golfers.”
The report comes from reporter Alan Blondin who spoke with Whitt McCullough and another assistant pro at the course. “I did not feel a pulse on Mr. Whitt so I began and took over compressions at that point” McCullough told Blondin. “As time elapsed I did regain a pulse and was able to feel it and sustain it.”
