SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Sports) – Utah’s best golfer, Tony Finau, revealed on Tuesday that he has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

Finau, who hasn’t played on the PGA Tour since the U.S. Open two weeks ago, will self-quarantine and will miss this week’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.

Finau said he is feeling well and is in good spirits.

The self-quarantine also would keep him out of the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek next week in Las Vegas.

He is the 10th player to test positive since the PGA Tour resumed its schedule June 8.

Finau, a West High School graduate, has eight top-10 finishes in the 2020-21 season, including an 8th place finish at the U.S. Open.

Finau has a wife and three children.
