PGA Tour In Crisis As Coronavirus Sees Players Withdrawing.

The PGA Tour is in crisis as four-time Major winning Brooks Koepka joined others in withdrawing from competition due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

First it was Nick Watney ahead of last week’s second round of the RBC Heritage and then earlier this week Cameron Champ also tested positive to Coronavirus symptoms.

Irishman Graeme McDowell withdrew from today’s (THU) starting Travelers Championship in Connecticut when long-time caddy, Ken Comboy also tested positive.

And now Koepka’s withdrawn from the Euro 6.6m event after his long-time Irish-born caddy, Ricky Elliott was also confirmed as testing positive for the disease.

“I’m going to pull out to protect everybody else,” said Koepka.

“I think it’s the right thing to do. I don’t want to risk anyone’s life if they have respiratory issues or underlying conditions. The only way this Tour can continue is if guys to do this sort of thing and be proactive about it.”
