Tony Finau Parents: Kelepi Finau, Ravena Finau
Tony was born to his father Kelepi Finau and his mother Ravena Finau. His parents got married in 1985 and divorced in 2011.
Kelepi, Finau’s father worked graveyard shifts for Delta and as a result, didn’t have a lot of money.
Because of that when his children showed interest in golf, he decided to buy used equipment and also built a make-shift practice center out of the garage.
