Lincicome Tests Positive for Covid, Withdraws from LPGA Event
American golf star Brittany Lincicome has withdrawn from this week’s Volunteers of America Classic after testing positive for the coronavirus.
She is a two-time major champion, and expected to be ready to go for the U.S. Women’s Open in December, according to GolfWeek.
Lincicome issued the following statement on Instagram:
“Although I have been very cautious, unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID-19. My husband and baby girl are both negative. I am now self-isolating and working on contract tracing with all those I have been in contact with. I have mild symptoms but am very disappointed to have to withdraw from the Volunteers of America Classic. I will be isolating at home until it is safe to resume my schedule. I wish everyone the best of luck and look forward to when I can return to playing on Tour.”
