I am really glad to win this tournament.
The winning shot of the18th hole was the key to this victory. I had at least 190 yards left and first I chose 6I, but to have full power into this last shot, I decided to use 7I with maximum swing.
It was the decisive factor of championship to choose 7I full shot. "This shot was the best of the day and have given me the feeling that I was able to convey my shot through a TOUR WORLD club".
I will devote myself to hard exercise and practice to win the championship again! So please support me continuously.

There are 7 members from "TEAM HONMA" are now within Top 20 of the domestic man and woman tour prize money rank.(As of September 8, 2014)
