My thinking is that there will be no specific park and rides. There will be changeable signage to direct to you to a particular P and R venue as you approach. As it fills up the signs will change and another P and R venue will be preferred. It allows all the buses to focus on one P and R and then move to the next etc.

Leaders will be out at around 2:45pm on Saturday. I would be there by late morning to avoid rushing and to give myself time to enjoy the atmosphere.
We'll win Ulster some day, not sure when.

What time do they expect play to be finishing at on the first two rounds?

The last match is at 16:16 and the average time to play a round is 4.5-5 hours these days. Most people will be gone home by then though, but if you're staying locally the evening time is a great opportunity to see play up close during the first two rounds

We'll win Ulster some day, not sure when.

It's all about who you want to follow though. Tiger and DJ are out at around 3pm so everyone will be following those matches.

There are 3 Marquee groups out around that time that'll draw most of the crowds of course as we all want to see them but it's worth taking a wander off to a lesser group and follow the action right up close. I picked Matt Fitzpatrick a few years back at Co Down and had a great time following his group for an hour or so, he even acknowledged me a couple of times as I roared  'mashed potato' ;D

Outside bets on Fleetwood Fowler (bet every major) and Scott

Only being a TV follower of the game, where does the Dunluce links rate on a scale of difficulty from a professional's perspective?  I guess we'll know by the scoring at the end of it on Sunday.
