GALLOWAY, N.J. – Calgary’s Jaclyn Lee withdrew from the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Tuesday after learning that her caddie tested positive for COVID-19.

Lee said in a tweet that she learned of her caddie’s positive test on Tuesday morning, despite her caddie having no symptoms.

The 23-year-old has spent most of her season on the Symetra Tour.

She returned to the LPGA Tour on Aug. 6 at the Marathon Classic at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio.

A severe wrist injury derailed Lee’s 2019 campaign and she has a medical exemption for this season.
