U.S. removes quarantine for golfers at PGA Tour events

U.S. removes quarantine for golfers at PGA Tour events”

Officials in the White House made the decision on Friday, and players were notified late in the day in an email, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

Jude Invitational begins on Thursday in Memphis while the PGA Championship, the first major of the year, will be held in San Francisco from August 6-9.

"I know they've dropped the two-week quarantine now, but I still don't feel comfortable and I don't feel like it is right to jump on a plane for 12 hours", the Englishman said. I can control me not getting the virus and take all the measures I can, but somebody might pass it on.

According to the memo sent by PGA Tour executive Tyler Dennis, players, caddies and essential personnel are now exempt from quarantine rules "as these groups are subject to COVID-19 testing and screening through the Tour's rigorous health and safety protocols throughout a tournament week".

Westwood said he felt the coronavirus outbreak was not being taken seriously enough in the US.

Westwood added that he suffers from exercise-induced asthma. Right now there are too many "what ifs".

The number of Covid-19 cases in the U.S. is close to four million and there have been over 145,000 coronavirus-related deaths. Memphis has 265 deaths and nearly 18,000 cases, while San Francisco has more than 50 deaths and over 5,700 cases. England's Tommy Fleetwood returned at the 3M Open this week after quarantining for two weeks in NY.

Westwood triggered speculation that he would head to California for the initially significant of the year when he took out of the Hero Open, which begins on Thursday at Forest of Arden, however he then exposed he anticipates to return at the English Championship.

"Under the current restrictions on travelling to America, I won't go because you have to quarantine for two weeks going out there and that's not something I am interested in doing", Pepperell told The Guardian.

"I'm 28 years of playing on tour and this is a shock to the system, isn't it?"

Werenski sank a long putt on the par-five 18th for birdie to finish level with Thompson, as both players carded third-round 68s to sit on 15-under 198 for the tournament.

South Africa's Charl Schwartzel (66) and in-form American Tony Finau (69) lurked two strokes back.

Numerous worldwide players have yet to return to competition on the PGA Tour due to the restrictions, including Adam Scott and Francesco Molinari.

"It was really a joy for me to be able to stay home those first three months of her life and really get to care for her and learn her little nuances and see her smile", he said.

"When we turned up on Monday, I was surprised how thorough everything was".
