Ireland’s Seamus Power has withdrawn from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after testing positive for Covid-19.

Power is replaced in the field by first alternate Zack Sucher, who will partner David Hearn in the two-man team competition at TPC Louisiana.

The 34-year-old “will have the PGA Tour’s full support throughout his self-isolation period under CDC guidelines,” the Tour said in a statement.

Power is currently ranked 438th in the world after recording a top-10 finish on his most recent start on the Korn Ferry Tour.
