Three players have tested positive for COVID-19 and withdrew from the Honda Classic on Monday, the PGA Tour announced.
It is the most positive tests announced during the same tournament week since last June’s Travelers Championship, the third tournament back after the tour paused for 13 weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic. Cameron Champ and two caddies were the announced positives at the Travelers.
Former Masters champion Danny Willett missed last week’s Players due to a positive test. He was the first player in a month who had to withdraw from a tour event due to the virus.
There have now been 10 players announced by the tour to test positive in 11 tournament weeks in 2021.
The Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is the third consecutive event to welcome back a limited number of spectators. Like the Players, it is expected to have about 10,000 per day.
