Rahm Withdraws from Memorial Due to Covid, U.S. Open in Jeopardy
Holding a six shot lead after the third round of The Memorial, Jon Rahm was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a positive coronavirus test.
Now, his chances of competing in the U.S. Open are in jeopardy.
“The CDC’s protocol regarding people who are confirmed positive for Covid-19 is clear, and that is 10 days of isolation unless someone is asymptomatic and is able to produce two negative tests of a minimum of 24 hours apart. Unfortunately, the timing would not allow Jon to continue to participate,” said PGA Tour’s Andy Levinson.
The U.S. Open is set for June 17-20 at Torrey Pines in California.
