Cameron Champ was added to the field in the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit under a modified PGA Tour policy that allows players who test positive for the coronavirus to be eligible if they had no symptoms and get two negative test results at least 24 hours apart.

FORT WORTH, Texas — The PGA Tour spent two months learning about the COVID-19 pandemic and trying to develop a safe plan to return, followed by another month hoping for the best.
Commissioner Jay Monahan said his confidence in the plan came with a dose of uncertainty.
Golf has never been known to move quickly.
Harold Varner III illustrated as much with thoughtful observations he posted on social media after civil unrest in America over the weekend reached levels not seen in more than 50 years.
The British Open will not be played this year for the first time since 1945, with the R&A choosing to play golf's oldest championship next year at Royal St. George's and move the 150th Open at St. Andrews to 2022.
It was a major piece of golf trying to reconfigure a schedule brought on by the spread of the new coronavirus.
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Gary Woodland denied Brooks Koepka's bold bid at history and made U.S. Open memories of his own yesterday with two clutch shots, a birdie putt on the final hole and that silver trophy in his hands at Pebble Beach.
Yeah, he's got this.
Koepka, trying to match a 114-year-old record with his third straight U.S. Open, kept the pressure on until the very end.
AUSTIN, Tex.—Six years later, the Dell Technologies Match Play was all too familiar for Tiger Woods.
He was on the cusp of losing his fourth-straight hole yesterday when Woods poured in a 10-foot par putt while Aaron Wise three-putted from 30 feet.
Just like that, momentum swung in his favour. Woods won three of the next six holes to take his opening match 3-and-1.
PALM HARBOR, Fla.—Paul Casey got the battle he expected yesterday in the Valspar Championship.
Just not from Dustin Johnson.
Casey and everyone else had full attention on a Copperhead course at Innisbrook that made the final round feel more like survival than a shootout.
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.—His best swing was followed by his biggest drive, both setting up birdies, and from there Rory McIlroy knew how to finish.
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.—Justin Thomas has played the 15th hole at The Players Championship some 20 times but never this early in the year.
That's why he turned to his caddie for some last-minute advice during a practice round.
“We don't have to worry about going through the fairway, right?” he asked Jimmy Johnson.
LOS ANGELES—Tiger Woods and his TGR Foundation took over the Genesis Open at Riviera two years ago, and now the PGA Tour is elevating it to the same status as tournaments hosted by Jack Nicklaus and the late Arnold Palmer.
Still to be determined is whether Woods actually can win the one PGA Tour event that has his number.
