Olympic snafu

Has yet another scheduling snafu engulfed the 2016 Olympics?

Within a month or so, the Guardian reports, all 18 holes at Venue Reserva de Marapendi in Rio de Janeiro will be shaped and ready to be grassed. But the grassing can’t begin until the course’s irrigation system is installed. And nobody seems to know when that will happen. Which is surprising, because just last November, Tim Finchem himself announced that the irrigation unit had “boarded a ship in Los Angeles and was headed for the Panama Canal.”

So where is it now?
