Steve Stricker withdrew from this week’s Senior PGA Championship after testing positive for COVID-19.
“Super bummed that I tested positive for Covid on Friday and have to withdraw,” he posted Tuesday on Twitter. “… Just a small setback and will look forward to getting back after it when I feel strong again!”
The season’s second PGA Tour Champions major begins Thursday at Harbor Shores Resort in Benton Harbor, Mich.
Stricker, 55, won the season’s first major at the Regions Tradition earlier this month.
It was the victorious 2021 Ryder Cup captain’s eighth win on the PGA Tour Champions to go with 12 career titles on the PGA Tour.
Last fall, Stricker battled a life-threatening illness and was away from the game for six months. He was hospitalized twice and lost 25-35 pounds, according to Golfweek.
