PGA Golfer Tony Finau Positive for COVID-19

PGA golfer Tony Finau tested positive today as part of the pre-tournament screening for the Shriners Hospital for Children Open and had to withdraw from the tournament. 

Tony Finau said on Twitter, "Earlier today, I received a positive result for Covid-19 under PGA TOUR on-site testing protocols and have begun a period of self-quarantine to protect others around me. I am feeling well, and am otherwise in good spirits.....I look forward to returning to action as soon as I am able, and I wish everyone at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open a great week ahead!"

The PGA also released a statement that said, "As part of the PGA TOUR’s pre-tournament screening process this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, PGA TOUR member Tony Finau tested positive for COVID-19 and has been withdrawn from the event.  Finau, who last competed at the U.S. Open, will have the PGA TOUR’s full support throughout his self-isolation period under CDC guidelines. First alternate Bronson Burgoon will replace Finau in the field."

Tony should have plenty of time to recover for The Masters which is about a month away.  He is the highest profile golfer to test positive for coronavirus to date and is the 10th PGA golfer to test positive.
