GALLOWAY, N.J. – Calgary’s Jaclyn Lee withdrew from the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Tuesday after learning that her caddie tested positive for COVID-19.
Lee said in a tweet that she learned of her caddie’s positive test on Tuesday morning, despite her caddie having no symptoms.
The 23-year-old has spent most of her season on the Symetra Tour.
She returned to the LPGA Tour on Aug. 6 at the Marathon Classic at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio.
After finding out this morning that my caddie tested positive for COVID-19 despite not showing symptoms, I have WD from @ShopRiteLPGA. While I wish I could be playing this week, I am working with the @LPGA to take all of the proper precautions needed in this unusual time. pic.twitter.com/GE097PCulc
