This starts tomorrow and is the final tournament of the season.
Erka Hara won last year and it will be interesting to see if she can do the double. Thats winning 2 weeks in a row and winning consecutive Ricoh cups.
This is a limited field of 40 players and has 3 Mizuno tour players with Erika Hara, Mao Saigo and Mao Nozawa.

It is being played at the Miyazaki Country Club.

With 3 rounds left there is time to improve however Ayaka Furue has had 6 wins this seasonn so won't give up the lead easily.

Progress for all 3 since Furue managed to drop a shot, 4 bogeys and 3 birdies.

Looks as though Erika Hara has had a couple of club changes for this event:-
A new driver, series prototype?, and swapped her 921gGW for a Mizuno Pro 225 GW

Mao Saigo T3
She has bogeyed the 18th in 2 of the rounds which is not a good sign for tomorrow.

Erika Hara T7
Seems to have a similar problem with the 18th.

It looks as though both Erika Hara & Mao Saigo are both playing ST series prototype drivers but none of the pictures or youtube videos give you a good look at the base of the driver.

The Mizuno logo doesn't seem to be in the same position as on the present ST-X & -Z drivers but looks to be in a similar position to the ST-X 22O. -Z 220 Drivers.

Mao Nozawa is using the ST-X

With a great round all 3 of them have a shot tomorrow. Fingers Crossed! But then they would need a decent score on the 18th probably. But you never know.

Maybe it's just the fact tham I'm used to my ST-Z but the new ones look kind of funny to me. But as long as they perform that's all that counts!
