BREAKING: 4th PGA Tour Player Tests Positive for Coronavirus
Another PGA Tour player has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Dylan Frittelli tested positive prior to getting on the PGA Tour’s charter plane to Detroit, the Tour confirmed in a statement on Sunday night.
“I am experiencing no issued and feel great physically and was surprised and disappointed to learn of the positive test today. I am thankful for the WHOOP strap notification of a minor increase in my respiratory rate overnight. However, I’m most thankful for the Tour’s assistance, procedures and protocols, which I will continue to following during my self-isolation, so as to keep everyone safe,” said Frittelli in a statement.
Frittelli missed the cut at the Travelers Championship, and has now withdrawn from next week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic.
He is the fourth PGA Tour player to test positive, following Nick Watney, Cameron Champ and Denny McCarthy.
Two Tour caddies have also tested positive for the virus.
From South Africa, Frittelli turned pro in 2012 and most recently won the John Deere Classic in 2019.
Prior to that, he played on the European Tour where he won twice in 2017.
