Grace finished third at the US PGA Championship five years ago

Burn Grace will miss next week's US PGA Championship after positive test for coronavirus at the Barracuda Championship.

He finished joint second at the PGA Tour event in Nevada, but withdrew for the third round and will now be in isolation for 10 days

The American PGA starts on Thursday at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

"I wanted to be tested out of respect for my colleagues and everyone involved in the tournament," said Grace, 32.

"Although it is unfortunate given my position on the scoreboard, the most important thing is our health.

" I felt great all week. Last night I was tired and thought it had to do with the altitude. This morning I notified the PGA Tour of my symptoms before going to the golf course. "

A PGA Tour statement said that Grace's caddy had been tested negative, but that he would be quarantined for 14 days as a precaution.
