Adam Scott will miss this week’s Zozo Championship after testing positive for COVID-19, according to the PGA Tour.

The 14-time tour winner withdrew from the tournament overnight after getting the results from his on-site testing at Sherwood Country Club.

“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 [northern autumn],” Scott said in a statement. He will now self-isolate per CDC guidelines.

The 40-year-old Queenslander will be replaced in this week’s field by Jim Herman.

Ranked 15th in the world, Scott was more outspoken than many players about his concerns with returning to action when the PGA Tour resumed the season in June after the three-month COVID-19 hiatus. Scott did not compete until the PGA Championship in August, two full months into the restart, and has played just four events since March. His best finish was a T-22 at the PGA at Harding Park.

Prior to the pandemic putting the PGA Tour season on pause, Scott won the Genesis Invitational in February for his first PGA Tour win in nearly four years. He is the 13th tour player to test positive for COVID during testing conducted in conjunction with tournaments.

Assuming his recovery goes as planned, Scott should be healthy in time for the Masters, which begins on November 12. Scott’s lone Major championship victory came at Augusta National in 2013.

Scott’s WD comes shortly after world No.1 Dustin Johnson also elected to skip the Zozo Championship. Johnson tested positive for COVID-19 last week before the CJ Cup and was forced to miss that event in Las Vegas.
