We bet the team at Honma are dancing in the streets of Tokyo tonight.
Justin Rose, the now world number one golfer, wins at Torrey Pines just under a month after switching club manufactures. Rose was always a loyal TaylorMade guy, but after winning the FedEx Cup and sniffing the World top spot briefly, Honma went in a scooped him up.
Rose jumped out of the gate with a strong 63 on Thursday and never really looked back. He backed it up with another impressive round Friday (66) and he ended up finished two strokes ahead of Adam Scott (2).

No one really knows the financial side of the Honma deal but you can imagine it had to be big enough to leave TM. Either way, the critics doubting if Rose would succeed with the club switch are probably quiet now. Look out, this guy can win 4-5 more this year without question.
