Jason Day asks for coronavirus check at Vacationers Championship | Recreation

Australian Jason Day has requested a coronavirus test and as a result will play Saturday’s Travelers Championship third round as a single, the US PGA Tour announced.

Day is struggling after opening rounds of 67 and 69 left him four under and in a share of 50th place at Cromwell, Connecticut, behind leader Phil Mickelson at 13 under.

The USPGA on Twitter reported: “Jason Day requested to be tested for COVID-19 Saturday morning.

“He will play the third round of the Travelers Championship as a single at 9:15 am off No. 10 pending results and as a precautionary measure.”

The tournament is the third since the PGA Tour resumed play, and saw another player test positive for COVID-19 on Friday after two caddies and a player tested positive on the eve of the tournament.

Denny McCarthy tested positive after feeling especially sore and tired after the first round. He went into quarantine while one first-round playing partner, Bud Cauley, withdrew as a precaution and another playing partner, Matt Wallace of England, opted to carry on.
