Keita Nakajima, the current #1 ranked amateur in the world, and Takumi Kanaya, a former World #1 amateur, are both in the field this week at the PGA Tour’s Sony Open in Hawaii just as they will be at this year’s Masters. Nakajima became the 3rd Japanese winner of the Asia-Pacific Amateur following in the footsteps of Hideki Matsuyama and Kanaya. On the other hand, Kanaya, 23, won the McCormack Medal after a 55-week reign as the top-ranked amateur, and he has wasted little time making his mark professionally in Japan ending the year ranked #49 in the world.
