WASHINGTON: Former US Open champion Gary Woodland and Scott Piercy have withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, after both players tested positive for COVID-19, the PGA Tor said on Monday (Mar 15).

World number 51 Woodland competed at last week's Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where he missed the cut after playing the opening two rounds at TPC Sawgrass with Billy Horschel and Ian Poulter.

Piercy, a four-times winner on the PGA Tour who is ranked 188th in the world, finished in a share of 69th at the Players

Championship where he played the final round with South Korea's Lee Kyoung-hoon.

Woodland, who captured the most recent of his four PGA Tour victories at the 2019 US Open, will be replaced in the field at PGA National by Sebastian Cappelen while DJ Trahan will replace Piercy.
