THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Adam Scott tested positive for COVID-19 and has withdrawn from the Zozo Championship at Sherwood.
Scott, 40, tested positive earlier this week at an on-site facility near Sherwood Country Club. He is the 15th Tour player to test positive since the PGA Tour returned in June after a 13-week break due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“While it’s difficult news to receive, as I really looked forward to playing this week, my focus now is on recovery for the final stretch of the fall,” Scott said Wednesday in a release.
Scott is ranked No. 15 in the official world rankings. He has 31 wins worldwide, including 14 on the PGA Tour. He won the Masters in 2013. His most recent victory came earlier this year in the Genesis Invitational.
First alternate Jim Herman will replace Scott in the field.
