    Harry Higgs has withdrawn from this week’s Houston Open after becoming the latest player on the PGA Tour to test positive for Covid-19.

    The Tour will head to the Memorial Park Golf Course on Thursday where players will have a final opportunity to fine-tune their game ahead of next week’s Masters.

    In a statement the Tour expressed their support for the American, who now has to self-isolate according to health and safety guidelines.

    ‘While I am disappointed to have to withdraw this week, I am grateful that I drove to Houston by myself and was alone as I awaited my pre-tournament screening results. I look forward to returning to competition when it is safe to do so,’ Higgs commented.

    The 28-year-old last competed at the Zozo Championship a couple of weeks ago and has subsequently been replaced by first alternate Kramer Hickok in the Houston Open field.

    World No 1 Dustin Johnson will make his return to action after he tested positive for coronavirus more than three weeks ago, as will Australia’s Adam Scott, who made a swift recovery after he became infected a fortnight ago.
