Simpson enters next event after family tests negative
Jun. 27, 2020
Webb Simpson entered next week's Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit after his family members tested negative for the coronavirus.
The winner of the RBC Heritage last weekend in South Carolina, Simpson withdrew from the Travelers Championship as a precaution when someone in his family had a positive test.
"The last week has been a roller coaster of emotions," Simpson posted to Twitter. From the high of a great week in Hilton Head to the realities of COVID-19 and the impact it can have on a family.
"Thankfully, I am happy to report that the Simpson family has all tested negative for COVID-19. We appreciate the outpouring of support from fans, friends and family."
Simpson, 34, the World No. 5, will be the highest-ranked player in the field at Detroit.
