PGA Tour modifies COVID-19 testing policy

In a move that could have significant impacts on other industries, the PGA is adopting a new policy to combat false positive tests for COVID-19. The controversy stems from last weekend’s Travelers Championship when golfer Cameron Champ was forced to withdraw due to an affirmative result. Since then, he has taken three separate tests, which all came back negative. It has called into question how often infections are identified when they don’t actually exist. The PGA Tour’s new policy allows a golfer to end the traditional 10-day quarantine early if he is asymptomatic and has multiple tests come back negative at least 24 hours apart. Champ is taking part in the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit this weekend. Entering Friday’s action, he is four strokes off the lead.
