Concerns Growing More Serious That Rio Will Not Be Ready For '16 Games
Published April 15, 2014
LATE FOR TEE TIME: GOLF WORLD MONDAY's Dave Shedloski notes the Brazil Open, a part of the NEC Series-PGA Tour Latinoamérica, has been "identified as the test event in preparation" for the '16 Olympic tournament. The event is scheduled to be "played on the Gil Hanse-designed Olympic course in the fall of 2015 -- though sources say preparations are being made to seek an alternate test site given the interminable construction delays at the Olympic layout." Hanse thinks a recent visit from the IOC "might have done enough to light a fire under the developer to complete the layout by this November, a slightly better outlook than recent estimates" (GOLF WORLD MONDAY, 4/14).
