DeChambeau, a graduate of Clovis East and last year’s US Open champion, is the most famous athlete who tested positive for the virus. “I was very disappointed that I couldn’t compete in the Team USA Olympics,” he said in a statement released by the PGA TOUR.
Patrick Reed will replace DeChambeau. The 2018 Masters Champion was scheduled to take the test on Sunday and Monday to win the competition in Tokyo. The first round of Kasumigaseki Country Club is scheduled for Thursday.
