PGA Tour Latinoamerica player Victor Lange is the first known professional golfer to be diagnosed with coronavirus.
The 26-year-old South African has no symptoms and is expected to make a complete recovery, according to a PGA Tour statement released Wednesday.
Lange, who played collegiately at Louisiana Tech, returned to his home in Johannesburg from Mexico on March 9.
He was tested Sunday as a precautionary measure and received his results Tuesday.
“We have offered our support as he recovers under quarantine at home,” the PGA Tour said in its statement.
Tour officials pledged to alert anyone who might have come in contact with Lange during his lone start on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica, the Estrella del Mar Open held March 5-8 in Mazatlan, Mexico.
