Four days after Nick Watney withdrew from the RBC Heritage after a positive Covid-19 test, Cameron Champ is withdrawing from this week’s Travelers Championship due to a positive test. He will self-isolate for at least 10 days, and can end his self-isolation if he has no further symptoms or has two negative test results 24 hours apart or more.

Champ entered the tournament at +17500 odds to win, +2800 to finish in the top five, and +1200 to finish in the top ten. His DraftKings salary for the event was $6,800. Champ did not play last week’s RBC Heritage, but finished tied for 14th in the Charles Schwab Challenge the week prior.

A year ago, Champ failed to make the cut at the Travelers, finishing +2 for the tournament.
