Denny McCarthy is the latest player on the PGA Tour to withdraw from this weekend's Travelers Championship because of a positive COVID-19 test.
McCarthy told Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel on Friday he was diagnosed with the coronavirus after waking "up in the middle of the night feeling achy and sore."
Ewan Murray of The Guardian confirmed that Bud Cauley also withdrew from the tournament after being partnered with McCarthy in the first round.
Murray noted that Matt Wallace, the other member of that threesome on Thursday, is currently still scheduled to play in the second round.
The PGA Tour announced Wednesday that Brooks Koepka, Cameron Champ, Graeme McDowell, Webb Simpson and Chase Koepka had withdrawn from playing in the event.
Per that announcement, Champ, Ken Comboy and Ricky Elliott tested positive for COVID-19 as part of the Tour's arrival testing. Comboy and Elliott are caddies for McDowell and Koepka, respectively.
Simpson noted that he recently "had a family member test positive for COVID-19" when he decided to withdraw.
McCarthy, 27, was among a group of players tied for 33rd place entering Friday after posting a five-under 67 in the first round.
