Day tests negative for COVID-19, played Travelers third round solo

Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — Jason Day asked to be tested for COVID-19 just before the third round of the Travelers Championship in Cromwell.

The PGA Tour said Day tested negative Saturday prior to his 9:15 a.m. tee time. Officials decided to have him play as a single Saturday as a precautionary measure. He was originally going to play with two other players for this round.

Day shot a 69 on Saturday and currently sits at 5-under for the tournament.

Two more players withdrew because of the coronavirus Friday — Denny McCarthy for a positive test, and Bud Cauley, who tested negative but decided to pull out after playing alongside McCarthy on Thursday.

There have been seven COVID-19-related withdrawals from the event.
