Survey results replicated at Dunhill

The Courier reported that, out of 96 respondents, 78% of those who were not residents of St Andrews had driven to the town and the 66% of those who expressed a willingness to use a train was a similar percentage to the 70% from the Scottish Seniors at Fairmont in August.

Although the samples are fairly small (174 at the Scottish Seniors and 96 at the Dunhill) both show the same pattern of a sizeable majority of car-users willing to switch to rail. It is intended that a similar exercise but with a larger sample will be undertaken at future events in St Andrews, and the Open Championship in July is at the top of the list.
