Graeme McDowell has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship in Connecticut after his caddie tested positive for coronavirus.

Ken Comboy returned a positive test on Tuesday prompting McDowell, who tested negative for the virus earlier this week, to pull out.

McDowell told Golfweek: "For the protection of the field and for my own physical and mental well-being, I'm going to take a test tomorrow morning then jump on a private plane.

"I'm going to get myself out of here, home to Florida and decide whether I need to quarantine myself from my family."
