Professional era

Next day1981 , Passed the protest. In July, when he suddenly won the professional conversion debut match and the sponsorship competition "Wakayama Open", he won 7 wins (4 time in 3nd place) in 2 races from his debut, causing a sensation.[18]..With a total of 6 wins this year, he was ranked 2nd in the highest prize money rank ever for a newcomer.It was said at that time that such an example did not exist in the history of golf in the world, let alone in the history of XNUMX years of professional golf in Japan.[22]..Known as a skipper, "PopeyeWas nicknamed.Isao Aoki,Shoji Ozaki,Nakajima TsuneyukiThe tour became very exciting and the golf boom started with the involvement of young Kuramoto in "AON".[7][10]..Also the same bachelor professionalNobumitsu Yubara,Yutaka HagawaSo, it attracted attention as "Young Three Crows", "New Wave Three Crows", "Bachelor's Professional Three Crows", etc.[7][10][23].

The short game that he has learned since he was a junior is extraordinary. Putting is good. He is an all-round player, and above all. One of my greatest strengths was knowing how to win in the amateur era. In addition, I have a bright personality. I don't mess around. That's why the tempo of play is fast. With the addition of "k" to "AON", Japan's Pro Tour has advanced. "[7]..As a battle that revives in memory with Kuramoto1985 OfBridgestone OpenKuramoto won the big turnaround on the final day, but when he heard that he said in an interview after the match that he wanted him to win, he heard that he was not about himself, but the current state of the world in which he lives.・ A man who is thinking about the future, he said that he was impressed with the type that was not found in professional golfers so far, not the old golfer who can only play golf.[7].

Golf world reform

From the experience of challenging the US tour from early on, I learned the organizational power of the US tour, the tournament management power, etc., and there was a twist with the players' association JPGA (Japan Professional Golf Association)'S organizational and institutional reforms, the "Tour of Japan" was launched in 1997, and the "JGTO (JGTO)" was completely separated from the PGA in 1999.Japan Golf Tour Organization) ”, And is also a person who has achieved reforms in the golf world.[5][18][28][30][31][32]..

OnceAi MiyazatoCompared to the girls who are prosperous due to their rise, for men's tours that are not energetic, "Japan Women's Professional Golf AssociationAlthough there are efforts in public relations, the fact that young people have come out means that the level of professionals is low.On the contrary, the level of boys has risen, and young men and amateurs are not in a state where they can win.Rather, it is better for people to understand that golf is like this. "Also for the first time in men's golfTitaniumAlso known as the player who brought the head[Source required]However, I am worried about the problem of equipment. "In terms of baseball, the current men's tour is a stadium with both wings 150 meters, but there are many batters who hit 60 home runs a year.
