The PGA Tour announced that Gary Woodland and Scott Piercy have withdrawn from this week’s Honda Classic after testing positive to COVID-19.

“The players will have the PGA Tour’s full support throughout their self-isolation period under CDC guidelines,” said the Tour via a release.

The Honda Classic, annually played at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, already had a thin field, so the loss of Woodland, the 2019 U.S. Open champion, is not welcome news.

Sebastian Cappelen, a two-time winner on the Korn Ferry Tour, will replace Woodland, while, D.J. Trahan, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, will replace Piercy.
