So Yeon Ryu - Honma

I noticed Honma has a new website, and under USLPGA only Feng Shan-Shan is listed.



Anyone know if Ryu is playing different clubs, her deal ran out, etc? At the HSBC she still had a Honma staff bag.

    I'm guessing it's a mix up in the new website. The original .co.jp domain is redirecting to the new .com domain. A Google search still shows her listed on Team Honma at http://www.honmagolf.co.jp/en/team_honma/pro_58.html, although the page is no longer reachable.



    She's still listed on the Indian website: http://honma.in/en/team_honma/index.php

    Yeah, the JP page is the one I was familiar with. The Indian one looks really old though. The clubs listed are a few models off.



    Always a chance they cleaned house / new strategy. But I would think she's as valuable as Feng (could be different from what each wants to get paid though) and would still be there.

    If so, will be interesting to see if she keeps playing the clubs (being using Honma since 2009). Obviously, equipment changes can be a big deal or people can switch fine. I'm not sure she has a lot of time left, so I'd hate to see her lose a year adjusting to new stuff.
