Campbell, who was the very first alternate for the occasion, is the 6th PGA Tour player to evaluate positive given that play resumed this month.
” While the positive test outcome is unnerving, I am exceptionally grateful to be asymptomatic and feel physically well and my ideas are with anyone handling COVID, straight or indirectly,” Campbell stated in a statement. “I support the TOUR’s protocol during this time and will be quarantining myself to secure others up until I am well. I am looking forward to completing again once it is deemed safe for me to make my return.”
Harris English, Nick Watney, Cameron Champ, Denny McCarthy and Dylan Frittelli are the other five gamers who have actually tested favorable. In addition, the caddies for Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell contracted the infection last week.
The PGA Trip has a $100,000 stipend program for gamers who check favorable and adhere to the Tour’s health protocols.
” We have developed a program, a stipend program, for gamers on our tours, if they were to test favorable throughout the week or during competition, and to be able to be qualified for those protocols, we have actually simply reconfirmed for our gamers, you need to follow our protocols in order to get approved for the stipend,” PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan told press reporters recently.
Monahan stated the PGA prepares to continue playing tournaments and deal with COVID cases on a week-by-week basis.
