Harris English is 5th PGA Tour Player to Test Positive for Coronavirus
Another day, another positive coronavirus test on the PGA Tour.
The Tour announced on Monday that Harris English has tested positive for the virus upon arrival at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
He has withdrawn from the event.
“While it’s disappointing to receive this news, I’m pleased that he new safety protocols we have in place worked this week. I fully supported the Tour’s new rule of not allowing anyone on the tournament grounds until testing negative, as protecting others in the field and everyone affiliated with the tournament and the community should be the number one priority as a result of the positive test,” said English in a statement.
English is now the fifth PGA Tour player to test positive for the coronavirus, and the second player, already, to drop out of the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Two caddies also tested positive last week.
Out of the University of Georgia, English turned pro in 2011 and has a total of five career wins.
Two wins on the PGA Tour, one on the Korn Ferry Tour and two other wins world wide.
