Dylan Frittelli tested positive for Covid-19 during the PGA Tour’s pre-charter testing process and has withdrawn from next week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit.

Frittelli missed the cut at the Travelers and had planned to travel to Detroit Golf Club via the Tour’s jet. According to a release, the PGA Tour has been in contact with those close to Frittelli and “after conducting necessary contact tracing, the Tour’s medical advisors are not recommending any additional testing at this time.”

Frittelli played the first two rounds of the Travelers with J.T. Poston and Ian Poulter. He was T8 at the RBC Heritage last week and missed the cut at the Tour’s return at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The 30-year-old is the fourth PGA Tour player to test positive for Covid-19. Cameron Champ and Denny McCarthy tested positive earlier this week, and Nick Watney tested positive at the RBC Heritage. Two caddies also tested positive at the Travelers.
