Charley Hull has tested positive for COVID-19 at the ANA Inspiration. Only one player and one caddie are still awaiting results in the 105-player field. Hull has withdrawn from the event and is working with tour and health officials on contact tracing.
“As part of the LPGA TOUR’s COVID-19 testing process, I was informed this morning that I tested positive for COVID-19 and I have withdrawn from the ANA Inspiration,” Hull said in a statement. “I didn’t feel great yesterday but I put it down to jet lag, the heat and my asthma playing up. I now realize I have some mild symptoms which feel similar to having a cold and I am self-isolating and working with Tour on contact tracing. I am very disappointed to have to withdraw from what is one of my favorite events of the year but wish everyone the best of luck at this week’s tournament and look forward to when I can return to playing on Tour.”
Hull will be quarantined for 10 days. She’ll then be reevaluated by the LPGA’s medical team to determine if she’s cleared to return to competition.
The 24-year-old Englishwoman has a strong career at the ANA that dates back to her amateur days. In seven showing at the event, her worst finish was T-38 back in 2012. She has three top 10s, including a tie for second in 2016.
