Golf hero: James Nicholas
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/3/15

James Nicholas is a star in the making. The senior from Scarsdale High School played into the water hazard, then waded in, sans shoes. The kid then hit this heroic water-save at the final hole of the New York State High School Golf Championship.

And yes, he won the championship.

Nicholas is a multi-sport athlete who is on his way to Yale University — and the ESPN Sportscenter highlight reel.

Of course, this reminds many of us of Bill Haas's amazing recovery from the water at the 71st hole of the 2011 Tour Championship. Haas won the event — and a big pile of money.

I would have to say that the shot Nicholas hit had a difficulty factor of 6.25 versus Haas shot, which was 4.1
