Let's be honest.

When most of us were 4 years old, the only sand we were playing in had four sides and was plopped in the middle of our neighborhood playground.

Not so for 4-year-old Blake Nakagawa.

He prefers his sand play on the golf course, as evidenced here:



Nakagawa lives on the Big Island of Hawaii.

And according to his Twitter bio he's a "golf enthusiast, avid soccer player, great surfer, awesome little brother."

He plays tournament golf, too. And wins.

Keep playing in the sand, Blake.
