The American will not attend the CJ Cup and will have to isolate himself to quarantine

Dustin Johnson, current number 1 in world golf, has also tested positive for coronavirus and is a last-minute drop for the CJ Cup, a tournament that has been held in Las Vegas since Thursday. Johnson was precisely framed in a group with Jon Rahm and Matthew Wolff, one of the stellar matches for the first two days. His place in the championship will go to JT Poston, and his place in the meeting with Rahm and Wolff has been to Tyrrell Hatton.

Golf was one of the first sports to make a comeback in the United States, a comeback driven by pressure from television networks, which feed this sport with large revenues, in which golfers win according to their position in tournaments; and a return also blessed by the ease of maintaining social distance and the little contact between players and caddies. The British Open was suspended, as well as the Ryder Cup, while the PGA, the US Open and the Augusta Masters changed dates. The first two have already been contested and the season of the greats will close in Augusta from November 12 to 15, in less than a month. It will be without public and with a minimum presence on the field: each player may only be accompanied at Augusta National by his caddy and by a relative, while if they want to bring a coach or a physical trainer they must demonstrate that it is necessary.

“I really wanted to compete this week, but I will do my best to get back as quickly as possible,” said Dustin Johnson, also looking forward to that Augusta Masters. The 36-year-old American golfer quickly alerted the circuit, the PGA Tour, when he perceived that he had symptoms, and is isolated after testing positive in the tests he was subjected to. His case joins that of two other great sports stars who have been infected in recent days, Nikola Mirotic and Cristiano Ronaldo.
