BREAKING: Dustin Johnson Tests Positive for Covid-19
Dustin Johnson has tested positive for the coronavirus and has withdrawn from The CJ Cup at Shadow Creek this week, the PGA Tour announced on Tuesday afternoon.
“Obviously, I am very disappointed. I was really looking forward to competing this week, but will do everything I can to return as quickly as possible. I have already had a few calls with the Tour’s medical team and appreciate all the support and guidance they have given me,” said Johnson in a statement.
According to bettors, Johnson was the odds on favorite to win this week’s tournament.
Instead, J.T. Poston will replace Johnson in the field.
Prior to this week, Johnson had not played since the U.S. Open.
