PGA Tour players that test positive for coronavirus are now eligible to receive as much as $100,000 providing they follow the circuit's health and safety guidelines during the two-week self-isolation process. Jack Nicklaus (1962-1978) and Arnold Palmer (1955-1971) share the record for the most consecutive seasons with a win to start a career on the PGA Tour, with 17.

Mackenzie Hughes (68) of Dundas, Ont., is one shot back in fourth, with Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Na are tied for fifth at 13 under after identical rounds of 65.

"I'm proud of myself for continuing the streak, and I want to keep it going, but it was a long time between wins - hopefully it won't be as long until the next one".

On Sunday, he was forced to wait through a weather delay of about an hour while leading the tournament with three holes left to play.

"I've had a few missed cuts, so to come back and finish a solo second is nice, but to be that close and perform and be right there, I'm just a little disappointed right now", Streelman said.

Johnson then looked certain to drop at least one shot on the driveable par-four 15th, when another tugged tee shot was heading for the water hazard only for his ball to pitch, dig in and cling onto the grassy bank beside the lake.

He took the lead on the ninth after drilling a 126-yard second shot to within five feet of the pin before rolling in the simplest of birdie putts. He chipped from the rough and missed the green but was able to get up-and-down for par.

Gordon, who had no status on either the PGA Tour or the Korn Ferry Tour, had seven birdies in a 64. His third-place finish was just enough to earn him a special temporary card and unlimited exemptions for the rest of the season.

"I knew the higher the better, so I was watching the leaderboard coming in", he said.

Biggest disappointment: Up two to start the day, overnight leader Todd opened with 11 straight pars, and then his bogey-free streak - 61 holes dating back the early stages of his first round on Thursday - blew up in spectacular fashion.

Todd said he was looking forward to being paired with Johnson for the final round of the tournament, where no fans are in attendance.

Fritelli missed the cut when the tour restarted with the Charles Schwab challenge but rallied to finish in a tie for eighth at the RBC Heritage at the Harbour Town Golf Links in SC. I hit a lot of good shots, hit a lot of good tee shots.

Frittelli, now ranked No. 105 in the world, competed at this week's Travelers Championship, where golfers Cameron Champ and Denny McCarthy and caddies for Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell all tested positive for COVID-19.

Nick Watney tested positive before his second round at Hilton Head, Cameron Champ before the Travelers Championship and Denny McCarthy after his first round at the TPC River Highlands.

The PGA said because of the positive tests this week, players, caddies, and anyone else "inside the bubble", will not be allowed on the property at future tournaments until first being cleared with a negative test for coronavirus.
