McCarthy tests positive and withdraws from the tournament along with Bud Caule

With McCarthy, who managed a record of 67 strokes (-3) before knowing he had a coronavirus, and Cauley, who shared a game with him, there are already seven abandonments.


The American Denny McCarthy left the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour this Friday, knowing that he has tested positive for coronavirus, and in his decision he was accompanied by his compatriot Bud Cauley, with whom he shared the game on the first day. With McCarthy, who had a 67-hitting record (-3) and would have opened the second round near the cut line, and Cauley, who presented a 69 (-1) card, there are already seven golfers who have abandoned this week.

Earlier this week the first was American Cameron Champ, also due to his COVID-19 spread. Her compatriot Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell retired after they learned that their 'caddies' also tested positive. Chase Koepka, the brother of Brooks who entered the tournament through a previous phase, also withdrew as a precaution.

Webb Simpson, champion last week of the RBC Heritage tournament, did the same after discovering that a member of his family had tested positive for the coronavirus. Last week on RBC Heritage, the second PGA Tour session after a three-month close, American Nick Watney became the first golfer affected by COVID-19.
