(AP Photo/David J. Phillip)AUGUSTA, Ga. – Sergio Garcia pulled out of the Masters on Monday after informing Augusta National he tested positive for the coronavirus, making him the second player to withdraw following a positive test. Garcia won his only major at the Masters three years ago in his 19th appearance, the most of any player before winning a green jacket. “After 21 years of not missing a major championship, I will sadly miss the Masters this week,” he tweeted. He brings to 15 the number of PGA Tour players who have tested positive since golf returned in June from the COVID-19 pandemic-caused shutdown. Adam Scott tested positive a week later in California and also had to withdraw.
