Fresh off Justin Rose being confirmed as a new Honma Golf staff player, compatriot Paul Casey has been spotted using Honma irons ahead of this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
While no concrete deal has yet been confirmed by Honma Golf for the acquistion of Casey, rumours have been circulating for some time that Rose is to be joined by another high-profile Tour pro on the PGA Tour.
Casey, who has been a free agent in the iron market ever since Nike Golf's departure from clubs and balls several years ago, was photographed with a Honma TW-U Forged utility iron in his hands during his practice round at Kapalua on Tuesday.

The Englishman signed a metalwoods-only deal with TaylorMade in 2017, but is a free agent when it comes to the rest of his bag.
Casey's bag at the end of 2018 consisted of TaylorMade woods, Mizuno irons, Titleist Vokey Design wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter.
The 41-year-old qualified for this week's winner-invite only Tournament of Champions after landing his second career PGA Tour title and first in nine years at the Valspar Championship, holding off Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed by one stroke.
Other players to confirm equipment switches on the PGA Tour heading into the new year include Kevin Na to Callaway and Gary Woodland to Wilson.
