Canada’s Taylor Pendrith’s return to the PGA Tour will be delayed by a week.

Pendrith tested positive for COVID-19 this morning, keeping him out of the John Deere Classic.

The product of Richmond Hill, Ont., has missed more than three months of the men’s golf season with a fractured rib.

He was scheduled to return today at the event at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill.

Pendrith seemingly fractured his rib at the Players Championship in mid-March.

He had originally targeted a return for the PGA Championship on May 19, then the RBC Canadian Open on June 6, and then the Travelers Championship on June 23.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 30, 2022.
