This year, the pick up for the free shuttle bus is changed from the bus terminal in front of Harbourfront to the car park at Sentosa Cove. I would think the previous arrangement is better. There is only 1 way in and out of the island. One can only imagine the traffic jam after the tournament. With all those cars parked along the road after the VIP entrance does not help either. Hopefully next year, the organiser will resme back to the old arrangement...

The bus from Harbourfront this year was still running - I used it on Saturday and Sunday. This service wasn't advertised on the BSO website though - no idea why.

Yea....I took it on Sunday too. Very Happy

Techno, there is a way

the week after the Masters, before Wells Fargo. April 15-28

these two weeks are filled with smaller events in PGA Tour (Heritage/Zurich Insurance)

Asian/Euro tour has Indonesian masters, Maybank Open and Volvo China Open on these weeks.

Why can't BSO swap with Volvo China? Right after Maybank Malaysia Open when most Euro players will be around the region?

This way, the euro pros can do back to back to back China events in October-November, less travelling. BMW Masters, WGC HSBC and then Volvo China Open.

I'm in Jakarta this weekend , and it doesnt rain as much as Spore

When they make me Tour Commissioner and overall-master-of-the-universe, this will be high on my list of priorities to do. That, and figuring out who bangla123 is.

I totally agree with the suggestion on the timing. This is worse time of the year and can't the richest tournament "buy" its way into a better schedule. Though I read it won't be richest anymore next year....
What about early of the year before USGA tour starts?

TS - what is it with you and bangla? Is it the same fuzzy feeling I have when I'm thinking about babycroc

What you have for babycroc is the kind of stuff the police warn culprits about before they spend a lifetime behind bars.

Actually I think there is more to it than what I originally tot.

I heard fm a rumor which I had spread:

The schedule was purposely set to this time of the year as the chances of rain is high. Henceforth, its easier to entice the top players as they don need to play so many holes and their remuneration model is based on turning up and yet, the viewers / fans will still pay full fee. The top players schedule is a long with the high chance of rain, it will help them. chance that it will change the date.
