During one of the practice rounds I heard a player saying that he had “done a Nakajima” on the road hole.
In case you don’t know of Japanese tour pro Tommy Nakajima and his antics on the 17th hole at St Andrews, here’s what happened during the 1978 Championship. Doing a Nakajima is now written into bunker instruction lore.
This Nakajima is not to be confused with the World’s number one amateur 21 year old Keita Nakajima who has been comepting here this week. What a remarkable swing, which you can see here. What a hugely exciting prospect to follow in the footsteps of Hideki Matsuyama.
