CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) — Cameron Champ withdrew from the Travelers Championship after testing positive for Coronavirus.

Champ – a two-time winner on the PGA Tour – tested positive during pre-tournament screening.

“I feel great physically and I was obviously surprised and disappointed to learn of the test result,” said Champ. “It’s important now to take the necessary steps and measures to protect others, including my loved ones.”

Champ missed the cut last year in his first appearance at TPC River Highlands.

Champ was reportedly joined by Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell on the list of withdrawals after the caddies for both players tested positive for the virus as well.

The Tour said in a statement Tuesday that it expects to release full results of the pre-tournament testing process on Wednesday.
