England’s Tyrrell Hatton has become the fourth player to withdraw from this week’s Valspar Championship after testing positive for Covid-19.

Hatton joins Austrian Sepp Straka, Will Gordon and Brice Garnett in pulling out of the PGA Tour event at Innisbrook Resort in Florida, where England’s Paul Casey is seeking a third straight victory.

All four players will have the PGA Tour’s “full support throughout their self-isolation period under CDC guidelines,” the Tour said in a statement.

Hatton is replaced in the field by first alternate Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Straka, Gordon and Garnett were replaced by Nelson Ledesma, JJ Spaun and Tim Wilkinson respectively.
