PGA TOUR Statement: Dustin Johnson Tests Positive for COVID-19 and Withdraws From CJ Cup


PGA TOUR Statement on Dustin Johnson

PGA TOUR member Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from THE CJ CUP @ SHADOW CREEK after testing positive for COVID-19. Experiencing symptoms, Johnson notified PGA TOUR officials and was administered a test, with the positive result forcing his withdrawal from the event.

Johnson, who last competed at the U.S. Open, will have the PGA TOUR's full support throughout his self-isolation period under CDC guidelines. 

"Obviously, I am very disappointed," said Johnson. "I was really looking forward to competing this week, but will do everything I can to return as quickly as possible. I have already had a few calls with the TOUR's medical team and appreciate all the support and guidance they have given me."

First alternate J.T. Poston will replace Johnson in the field.

"The No. 1 player in golf is the 11th player to receive a positive test since the PGA Tour resumed its schedule," reported the Associated Press.
