Tsuneyuki "Tommy" Nakajima (born 20 October 1954) is a Japanese professional golfer.Nakajima was born in Gunma. He turned professional in 1975. He has won 48 events on the Japan Golf Tour, ranking third on the most Japan Golf Tour wins list. He also was the leading money winner four times in five years: 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1986. He is second on the career money list (through 2008).Nakajima featured in the top 5 of the Official World Golf Rankings and was ranked in the top-10 for 85 weeks from their debut in 1986 to 1987. He ranked as high as fifth on its predecessor McCormack's World Golf Rankings.In 1978, Nakajima was in contention at the Open Championship on the third day at St Andrews until he putted into - and then took four attempts to escape from - the Road Hole bunker at the 17th for a quintuple bogey, which led the British tabloids to christen that bunker, for a while, "the Sands of Nakajima". He would also feature in an epic match at the Suntory World Match Play Championship at Wentworth, eight years later, when he lost to Sandy Lyle only after an extended playoff.
