Sepp Straka and Tyrrell Hatton withdrew from the this week’s Valspar Championship on Tuesday after becoming the third and fourth players this week to test positive for COVID-19.

The PGA Tour announced that Straka and Hatton will be replaced by Nelson Ledesma and Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Will Gordon and Brice Garnett were forced to withdraw Monday after positive tests.

Straka, 27, played the last two PGA Tour events, finishing T59 at the RBC Heritage and T29 at the Zurich Classic team event. The Austrian has earned $782,769 on tour this season.

Hatton, 29, finished T18 at The Masters and T39 at the RBC Heritage earlier this month. The Englishman has earned $1.43 million this season.

The first round of the Valspar is Thursday at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Fla.
