Jhonattan Vegas out of Sony Open after positive test

1/13/2021 12:29:08 PM EST

Jhonattan Vegas tested positive for COVID-19 and has withdrawn from the Sony Open in Hawaii, the PGA Tour announced.

The 36-year-old Venezuelan is the second PGA Tour player to withdraw from a tournament due to a positive test this year. Jim Herman tested positive prior to leaving for Hawaii for the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Vegas last played at the Mayakoba Classic in December, finishing in a tie for 20th place.

A three-time PGA Tour winner, Vegas currently ranks 144th in the FedExCup standings.

First alternate Seamus Power will compete in the Sony Open and replace Vegas, who now must self-isolate under the CDC guidelines.
