A caddie tested positive for COVID-19 during on-site testing at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and has begun his 10-day quarantine. His player, Charlotte Thomas, has withdrawn from the event due to close contact. Following guidance from the CDC and the LPGA medical directors, Thomas will begin a 14-day quarantine and both she and her caddie have been working with Tour and local health officials on contact tracing. 

“Unfortunately I will be withdrawing from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship this week due to my caddie testing positive for COVID-19,” said Thomas. “I will be following CDC and LPGA guidelines by self-isolating for two weeks due to close contact. We are both asymptomatic and feeling healthy which is the most important thing. 2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year for so many and I am grateful for the support that the LPGA and my fellow players have showed us this week. A massive thank you to KPMG for your ongoing support of the women’s game. This event is one of my favourites and I am absolutely gutted to be missing it but will be keenly watching throughout the week. Good luck to everyone playing.”
