Masters champion Matsuyama out of PGA event with COVID-19

Written by on July 3, 2021

Reigning Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama withdrew from the US PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic before Friday’s second round after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 29-year-old world number 18 became the first Japanese man to win a major golf title when he captured the green jacket in April at Augusta National.

Matsuyama opened with a level par 70 in the first round at Detroit Golf Club.

His departure forced six-time major winner Phil Mickelson and fellow American Rickie Fowler to play in a twosome on Friday.

Matsuyama is set to represent Japan in the Olympic golf tournament from July 29-August 1 and is entered in the British Open on July 15-18 at England’s Royal St. George’s.

Under COVID-19 protocols, Matsuyama must quarantine for 10 days or until he returns two negative tests more than 24 hours apart.
