Positive for Covid-19, Lydia Ko withdraws from Saudi Ladies International

Defending champion Lydia Ko has tested positive for COVID-19 and has withdrawn from next week’s Saudi Ladies International, tournament organizers announced on Saturday.
New Zealand’s Ko is in self-isolation after testing positive following the HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore last week, where she finished tied for 23rd. World No.3 Ko, who became the first woman to win multiple Olympic golf medals with her bronze at the Tokyo Games last year, she was succeeded by American golfer Angel Yin. The third edition of the Saudi Ladies International, part of the Ladies European Tour, will take place at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club from March 17-20 and will feature a $1 million prize pool.
