Amateur Takumi Kanaya lives dream of leading Masters
Amateur Movie Review
Sign in. The star of " The Boys " has a great Watchlist that she can't stop re-watching. Watch now.
The year-old from Hiroshima bowed to reality by the end of the day, firing a one-over par 73 in his first round at the famed layout, but was still elated by the fairy-tale start. His superb start came after a touch of nerves as he reached the first tee in just the fifth group of the day. But, no, I was very nervous. He curled in a foot effort over a ridge at the first to calm his worries, but a bogey at the par-3 fourth and back-to-back bogeys to begin the back nine set Kanaya back. Kanaya responded with birdies at the par-5 13th and 15th holes but took a double bogey at the par-4 17th to fall back, although well within his goal for the week.
