2021 Memorial Tournament leaderboard: Jon Rahm forced to withdraw after testing positive for Covid-19.
Rahm took a commanding six-stroke lead in Round 3 before being informed of the news as he left the course

Jon Rahm was a runaway train on Saturday at Muirfield Village in the third round at the Memorial Tournament, but he won't be afforded the chance to complete a victory. While walking off the course after scoring a par on 18 to take a six-stroke lead into the final round, Rahm was informed by officials that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Due to the positive test, Rahm will be forced to withdraw from the tournament.
CBS Sports will have more on this breaking news shortly.
He was 6 strokes ahead aftet 3 rounds. It makes one wonder if all the spectators are required to have a certificate of vaccination. They often crowd around the players even touching them at times. And they're not wearing masks either.
Well, they shouldn't be allowed to crowd or touch them during the pandemic, vaccinated or not. That's infringement and something I would not like at all.
