Champ can play under tour's latest coronavirus policy change

  Champ can play under tour's latest coronavirus policy change Cameron Champ was added to the field in the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit under a modified PGA Tour policy that allows players who test positive for the coronavirus to be eligible if they had no symptoms and get two negative test results at least 24 hours apart. The decision Wednesday was the latest change to an evolving “Health and Safety Plan” as the tour enters its fourth week back from the COVID-19 shutdown. Champ is among six players and two caddies on the PGA Tour who have tested positive. Ricky Elliott, the caddie for Brooks Koepka, tested positive before the Travelers Championship last week in Connecticut, and then had a negative test.

COVID - 19 has cost Detroit four players, including Cameron Champ, who tested positive last week, and Graeme McDowell, whose caddie tested positive . PGA Tour officials planned to conduct more than 400 tests of players, caddies and essential tournament staff Monday, ahead of the tournament

Chad Campbell has withdrawn from this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic after testing positive for COVID-19, the PGA Tour announced Tuesday.

Campbell last competed at the Charles Schwab Challenge, which concluded June 14.

"While the positive test result is unnerving, I am incredibly grateful to be asymptomatic and feel physically well, and my thoughts are with anyone dealing with (COVID-19), directly or indirectly," Campbell said.

"I support the Tour's protocol during this time and will be quarantining myself to protect others until I am well. I am looking forward to competing once again once it is deemed safe for me to make my return."

Harris English on Monday became the fifth PGA Tour player to test positive for COVID-19. He has also withdrawn from the tournament, which begins Thursday in Detroit.
