The PGA Tour announces Monday afternoon that St. Simons pro Harris English is one of five players who tested positive for COVID-19.
Players underwent a pre-tournament screening process ahead of the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. After getting his results, English withdrew from the event.
In a statement English said, "While it's disappointing to receive this news, as I feel healthy, I'm pleased that the new safety protocols we have in place worked this week," English also added, "I fully support the Tour's new rule of not allowing anyone on the tournament grounds until testing negative, as protecting others in the field and everyone affiliated with the tournament and the community should be the No. 1 priority as a result of a positive test."
