Nick Watney has returned to the PGA Tour. And so have Dylan Frittelli and Denny McCarthy, two other golfers who recently tested positive for the coronavirus.
They all played together on Thursday.
The PGA Tour made the decision to put those three golfers in the same group for Thursday’s first round at the Workday Charity Open in Dublin, OH. They will also be grouped together on Friday.
Frittelli (+1), McCarthy (+1) and Watney (+5) are all over par after the first round.
Nick Watney, a former all-American at Fresno State, was the first person associated with the PGA Tour to test positive for COVID-19 a few weeks ago. He was in South Carolina at the time, and had to stay isolated at Hilton Head before being allowed to travel home to Texas.
