Chad Campbell on Tuesday became the first time PGA Tour player to test positive for COVID-19.
Campbell was analyzed from the pre-tournament screening prior to the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit, according to the PGA Tour.
“While the positive test outcome is unnerving, I’m incredibly thankful to be asymptomatic and sense emotionally well and my thoughts are with anybody coping with COVID, indirectly or directly,” Campbell said in an announcement. “I encourage the TOUR’s protocol in this period and will be quarantining myself to guard others until I’m well. I’m looking forward to competing again after it’s deemed safe for me to create my return.”
Campbell was supposed for a first alternative for the championship.
The PGA Tour said in a statement that Campbell could have its own whole support, which can be important since the tour’s new policy claims that the $100,000 stipend available for players who test positive for COVID-19 could be withheld if it has determined that the player did not comply with protocols set up.
Campbell last played The Charles Schwab open, where he missed the cut. His favorable evaluation includes one day after Harris English analyzed positive, and join Nick Watney, Cameron Champ, Denny McCarthy and Dylan Frittelli as gamers that have tested positive.
Additionally the Korn Ferry Tour declared tour associates Brandon Wu, Taylor Montgomery and Jonathan Hodge have retreated in the TPC Colorado Championship in Heron Lakes prior to the first round. The Korn Ferry Tour states a total of 247 gamers are analyzed since the tour’s yield and Wu, Montgomery and Hodge would be the only three ways to test positive.
