Rahm cleared for U.S. Open after testing positive for COVID-19
Rahm was forced to withdraw from the Memorial last week after testing positive for COVID-19 while holding a six-shot lead following three rounds. The 26-year-old was notified he was subject to contact tracing on the Monday leading up to the event, and he returned negative tests every day until Round 2 concluded.
Patrick Cantlay ended up winning the tournament with Rahm sidelined.
Rahm, the world No. 3, enters the U.S. Open still seeking his first career major victory. The Spaniard has finished in the top 10 during each of his last three major appearances.
