dont forget your hat/cap, sun block, an umbrella, wear sneakers for comfort.
I prefer to follow a pro for 18 hole round than to stay put at certain tee box or green. I want to see different types of shots
dont take pics at the tee box
wait till last hole finish then get your fav pro's signature
hang around the practice green (hole 1) if you want to check out pros' WITB and overhear what they're chatting and their putting routine

Basically, try not to take pictures everywhere (depending on the marshalls) - can do it discreetly. Be a good spectator and don't ruin the tournament (jaywalking accross the fairways, chit chating loudly, littering, be quiet when you're asked to, etc etc).
Bring water also do hydrate yourself.
Wear sneakers would be good, not sandal or golf shoe (for me).

bring a disposable poncho if u hv. make sure u get a tee time sheet so u can estimate where r the players u wanna watch n proceed to the holes. normally i try to position myself at 1st or 1oth tee to watch all the players tee off then goto to the holes where my favourite golfers will be. based on tee time, u can gauge where your fav golfers will be.
saturday n sunday will be easier bcos only Serapong will be used.

Am planning to go down tomorrow morning. Will probably be following one of the following four flights - (Oosthuizen/Molinari - 0915, MacDowell - 0925, Els/Justin Rose - 0935, or Jimenez/Bjorn - 0945) @ Tanjong Course.
Anyone keen to join me?

that's if Phil make the cut, wonderful guy with great shot but could be wild at time. a iron shot from the cart path and a driver shot for the 2nd shot par 5 from Phil made my trip to Sentosa today worth every cents...

Seeing the pros played can be so inspiring. See how they shape the ball.....looked so simple.
