WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Honda Classic will be without two more golfers just days before the PGA Tour event tees off.

Gary Woodland and Scott Piercy have withdrawn from the Palm Beach Gardens tournament after testing positive for coronavirus, the PGA Tour announced in a statement Monday.

"The players will have the PGA Tour's full support throughout their self-isolation period under CDC guidelines," the statement said.
