BREAKING: Sergio Garcia Tests Positive for Covid, Withdraws from Masters
Sergio Garcia has tested positive for the coronavirus and has withdrawn from The Masters.
“On Saturday night after driving back from the Houston Open, I started feeling a bit of a sore throat and a cough. The symptoms stayed with me on Sunday morning so I decided to get tested for COVID-19 and so did my wife Angela. Thankfully she tested negative, but I didn’t,” said Garcia in a statement.
He adds, “After 21 years of not missing a Major Championship, I will sadly miss The Masters this week. The important thing is that my family and I are feeling good. We’ll come back stronger and give the green jacket a go next April.”
Joaquin Neimman withdrew last week due to Covid.
Garcia won the 2017 Masters.
It is the only major win of his career.
