Rory McIlroy has revealed that he was in contact with Nick Watney before the American tested positive for coronavirus.
Watney is the first player to test positive since the resumption of golf's PGA Tour, he's withdrawn from the RBC Heritage and is now self-isolating.
Rory McIlroy came into contact with Watney before Friday's play, but is confident he'll be ok:
"Nick texted me actually because we had a chat on the putting green before I went out to play, but we were at a distance.
"He was just saying 'look, I hope I didn't get too close to you'. He feels badly that he was here today at the golf course. I said 'it's fine, you never know. If I was in your position, I probably would have been here too. Look, at this point, you just have to concentrate on getting better and getting healthy'.
"But it sucks for him especially. You know, if you contract it, that's fine, but then it's the fact that who have you come into contact with, and who you might have exposed and stuff.
"Look, we're still in the middle of a pandemic. Until this thing's over, we all just have to stay vigilant and keep your distance and wear our masks if we're going out in public and keep washing our hands."
