The COVID-19 pandemic has once again struck the PGA Tour.

On Monday afternoon the Tour announced that a pair of four-time winners had tested positive for COVID-19 and have withdrawn from this week’s Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida: 2019 U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland and Scott Piercy.

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

Woodland is being replaced in the field by Sebastian Cappelen, a two-time winner on the Korn Ferry Tour. D.J. Trahan, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, will replace Piercy.
