Tanner Gudauskas: "I Just Wanted to Battle"

Tanner Gudauskas became one of the most successful wildcards in Hurley Pro history with his 3rd place finish on Wednesday. The San Clemente local presented Joel Parkinson with a huge challenge during the Semifinals. In the end, Gudauskas lost by one-tenth of a point.

With the big result, Gudauskas will be heading back to the Qualifying Series with a little extra swagger in his step, which will come in handy as he prepares for the final few battles that will determine whether or not he'll earn a spot on next year's Championship Tour.
