Sergio Garcia will not be playing at The Masters later this week he confirmed he has withdrawn from the re-scheduled event following a positive Covid-19 test.

Garcia won his first major championship when he won The Masters in 2017 and he would have been hoping to get in the mix for a second green jacket at Augusta this week.

However, Garcia confirmed on his Twitter feed that he will not be playing this week after he developed coronavirus symptoms.

Garcia has struggled to find his best form since his Masters win three years ago, but he has shown signs of a return to form in recent weeks.

His absence will be a big blow to the Spaniard, with Bryson DeChambeau the bookies favourite to win a second successive major title at 15/2, Rory McIlroy is an 11/1 shot and defending champion Tiger Woods is listed as a 35/1 outsider.
