Garcia withdraws from Masters after positive COVID-19 test

Former Masters champion Sergio Garcia is the second player to withdraw from Augusta National after testing positive for the coronavirus

Garcia won his only major at the Masters three years ago in his 19th appearance, the most of any player before winning a green jacket.

Joaquin Niemann of Chile previously announced over the weekend he tested positive and withdrew.

Garcia played last week in the Houston Open, which sold 2,000 tickets each day. It was the first domestic PGA Tour event that allowed limited spectators on the course. Garcia missed the cut.

The Masters field was reduced to 94 players.
