Gary Woodland and Scott Piercy are out of the Honda Classic after testing positive for COVID-19.
Both Woodland and Piercy competed in the Players Championship last week, which admitted 20 percent of its maximum spectator capacity last week as professional sports begin to welcome fans back to arenas, stadiums and fields. Piercy played in all four rounds, finishing T-69, while Woodland missed the cut after a second-round 76.
The positive test is the latest blow to Woodland. The 2019 US Open champ has missed the cut in six of 11 events this season as he continues to battle back woes, sitting at 169th in the FedEx Cup standings. Piercy had a strong fall start with three top 25s but has not posted a finish better than T-50 in 2021.
According to the tour, both players are in their self-isolation period under CDC guidelines.
The Honda Classic announced Sebastian Cappelen will take Woodland’s spot in the field, with D.J. Trahan subbing in for Piercy.
