Charley Hull in England has tested positive for the corona virus and will miss this week’s ANA Inspiration.

The 24-year-old revealed on Twitter that she had returned a positive test and therefore withdrawn from the second major of the season.

Hull said, “As part of the LPGA TOUR’s COVID-19 testing process, I was told this morning that I tested positive for COVID-19 and that I have withdrawn from the ANA Inspiration.

‘I am very disappointed to have to withdraw from what is one of my favorite (sic) events of the year, but wish everyone the best of luck in this week’s tournament and look forward to when I can play on Tour again.’

Hull, whose runner-up at Mission Hills Country Club in 2016 remains her best performance at a major, missed the cut at last month’s AIG Women’s Open.

The world’s number 28 added: ‘I didn’t feel very well yesterday, but I put it on jet lag, the heat and my asthma played up.

“I now realize I have some mild symptoms similar to a cold, and I am self-isolating and working with the Tour on contact tracking.”
