PGA Tour golfer Tony Finau announced on Twitter Tuesday night that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

"Earlier today, I received a positive result for COVID-18 under PGA TOUR on-site testing protocols and have begun a period of self-quarantine to protect others around me. I am feeling well, and am otherwise in good spirits.

"I look forward to returning to action as soon as I am able, and I wish everyone at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open a great week ahead!" Finau tweeted.

The PGA released the following statement following Finau's announcement.

As part of the PGA TOUR’s pre-tournament screening process this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, PGA TOUR member Tony Finau tested positive for COVID-19 and has been withdrawn from the event.

Finau, who last competed at the U.S. Open, will have the PGA TOUR’s full support throughout his self-isolation period under CDC guidelines.

First alternate Bronson Burgoon will replace Finau in the field.
