This morning walk in as a single to play Marina. Tee off 8.52. PLayed only 10 holes and got wash out. Got a rain check for 9 holes though. On the way home using AYE saw 2 BMW 740 Series with Barclays Open in BIG BIG decal. Wonder who the cars are for. They bear BSO 17 and BSO 12. BSO (Barclays Singapore Open).

Darn it. After I left half hour later the sky clears up %$#@$#%.

Not enough to go round la. I Think only the privilege few la. If open to all of them, just 20% wants to borrow the car already BMW pok la. This is not APEC la. That is Gahmen. They will have one for every VIP. Even their subordinates dont have. Only the top few VIPs like European PGA President and the likes la I guess. Even then it is sponsor by Barclays. You think the bank going to sponsor for every golfer taking part? NO Freaking way mate No Peace

Cars are for big name players and officials, saw Phil and Charles Howell jump into them last year. Caddies have to take mini bus.

Players are in Rasa Sentosa. Ian Poulter was spotted in Fullerton wearing shorts, t shirt and thongs. Almost wasn't recognised cos he wasn't dressed in his peacock best.
