AP Sports Writer (AP) Webb Simpson is competing on the PGA Tour again after his family had a coronavirus scare.

One of Simpson's daughters tested positive for COVID-19, leading to him withdrawing from last week's tournament as a precaution.

"The first test was positive, but (she) got tested again by the more accurate tests, along with my other four kids and my wife, and everyone was negative," Simpson said Wednesday, a day before the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. "So we felt confident that she never had it."
