Tony Finau has tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, meaning the No. 16 player in the world has withdrawn from first of two PGA Tour stops in Las Vegas.

The self-quarantine also would keep him out of the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek next week in Las Vegas.

Finau said he was feeling well and was otherwise in good spirits.

He is the 10th player to test positive since the PGA Tour resumed its schedule June 8. Since then, it has held 18 tournaments in 14 states and the Dominican Republic, including the U.S. Open in New York.

Finau’s positive test result was the first since Scottie Scheffler and Sam Horsfield ahead of the U.S. Open last month.
