"I am experiencing no issues and feel great physically and was surprised and disappointed to learn of the positive test," Frittelli said, adding that he would undergo a period of self-isolation.

"I look forward to getting back on Tour once it's safe to do so," he said.

The PGA Tour said in a statement that it had carried out contact tracing after Frittelli returned the positive result, but was not recommending additional testing at this time.
