Dylan Frittelli, the South African golfer, will miss this week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club after testing positive for COVID-19, the PGA Tour has announced.

COVID-19: South Africa’s Frittelli tests positive

Frittelli, who missed the cut at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut, is the fourth golfer to test positive since the PGA Tour resumed on June 11.

“I am experiencing no issues and feel great physically and was surprised and disappointed to memorize of the positive test,” Frittelli said, adding that he would undergo a period of self-isolation. “I look forward to getting back on Tour once it’s safe to do so.”

The PGA Tour said in a statement that it had carried out contact tracing after Frittelli returned the positive result, but was not recommending additional testing at this time.
