Golfer at Dublin Ohio Tournament tests positive for covid-19/ withdraws....

On the evening Monday, May 31, the PGA TOUR notified Jon Rahm that he was subject to contact-tracing protocols, as he had come in close contact with a person who was COVID positive. Per the TOUR’s COVID Health & Safety Plan, Rahm was given the option to remain in the competition and enter our tracing protocol, which includes daily testing and restricted access to indoor facilities. Rahm has remained asymptomatic.

Rahm has tested negative every day, but his most recent test – which was performed after the conclusion of his second round (rain delayed) and before the start of his third round – returned positive at approximately 4:20 p.m. ET while Rahm was on the golf course. The PGA TOUR’s medical advisor requested a confirmatory test on the original sample, which came back at 6:05 p.m. ET, and was also positive.

The PGA TOUR’s medical advisor notified Rahm immediately upon completion of his round, and under TOUR protocols, he will be withdrawn from the competition. Rahm is now in isolation, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, he will need to remain in isolation through Tuesday, June 15.

While this is an incredibly unfortunate situation, throughout 50 events since the PGA TOUR’s Return to Golf, there have been only four positive tests (including Rahm) within competition; Rahm is the first positive, asymptomatic case as part of the TOUR’s routine, contact-tracing protocols. end>

At this moment, no mention if he has already been fully vaccinated...If so, if he is fully vaccinated, we have to fine tune this what to do if there is a positive covid-19 test....As I understand it..sure, you can contract covid-19 being vaccinated but the risk of transmission is very low...A covid-19 test does not differentiate as to the details such as is the virus multiplying or are these weak, or dead virus cells testing him positive? This is new ground to break so to speak...we need to refine the testing once again to differentiate...

4. Just found this on Golfweek : "It is not known if Rahm is fully vaccinated. If he had been,

he would not have been subject to daily testing."

“If someone had been fully vaccinated, and fully vaccinated under our protocol is, and it’s defined by the CDC, is 14 days past the full cycle of a vaccination. They do not have to test as a result of being a close contact,” Levinson said. “Unless they have developed symptoms.”

Levinson said “north of 50 percent” of the PGA Tour players have been fully vaccinated.


But the story doesn't end there. It sounds like Morikawa, Schauffle, Cantlay, and Scheffler are all subject to possible withdrawals as well, as they were considered to be in close contact with Rahm, so it all depends on their vaccination status.

So it sounds like Rahm and possibly others are willing to roll the dice with their livelihoods, in order to make a frigging statement? SMDH.

5. He was withdrawn from the competition, he didn't withdraw, and no, he was not vaxxed.
