Bryson DeChambeau out of Tokyo Olympics after positive Covid test
Bryson DeChambeau tested positive for Covid-19 before leaving the United States for the Olympics and will miss the Tokyo Games
Reed was scheduled to undergo testing Sunday and Monday to clear himself to compete in Tokyo. The first round at the Kasumigaseki Country Club is set for Thursday.The 30-year-old Texan joins Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele in the men’s competition, with Nelly Korda, Lexi Thompson, Danielle Kang and Jessica Korda comprising the women’s team.
Reed was third in line to be a replacement, behind Patrick Cantlay and Brooks Koepka.Koepka has sounded unenthused about the prospect of playing in the Olympics, saying the sport’s four majors, plus the Ryder Cup and other big events, give players plenty to strive for. The Ryder Cup this year is set for 28-30 Sepptember at Whistling Straits.
Reed, the 2018 Masters champion, has been more gung-ho about the Olympics, and now, he is the only two-time Olympian on the men’s side of the sport, which was reintroduced to the program in 2016 after a 112-year absence. He shot 64 in the final round in Rio de Janeiro and finished 11th. headtopics.com
“I am so excited to have the opportunity to represent our country and be a part of Team USA in Tokyo,” Reed said. “I wish Bryson nothing but the best, and I know how disappointed he is to not be able to compete, and I will do my best to play my best and represent our country.”
USAGolfexecutive director Andy Levinson said Reed’s willingness to quickly rush through Covid protocols and come to an unfamiliar course on no notice “really illustrates the importance of the Olympics and the value Patrick places on playing for Team USA and for his country”.
“We’re obviously disappointed for Bryson, as we know how much he was looking forward to representing the United States in his first Olympics,” Levinson said.DeChambeau had been looking to turn around a drama-filled season that has included months of sparring with Koepka, a sudden break with his longtime caddie, and, most recently, a spat with his club sponsor when he said his driver “sucks” after struggling at the British Open.
He finished 33rd at Royal St George’s only a few weeks after playing himself into contention on Sunday at the US Open at Torrey Pines, only to shoot 44 on the back nine and finish in 26th place. He didn’t crack the top 25 in any of this year’s majors, but does have one victory this year – in March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. headtopics.com
