TOKYO: Japanese teen sensation Ryo Ishikawa was splashed across the back pages again on Tuesday after winning his first pay cheque at the weekend.

The 16-year-old's 10th place at the Pearl Open in Hawaii earned him $2,420 - a mere drop in the ocean compared to the $10 million it is estimated he will earn in the next few years alone.

Ishikawa, whose pearly white grin has made him one of the most photographed celebrities in Japan, also received an early Valentine's Day gift from local golfer Kelcie Kawano.
