Jason Day tested negative for COVID-19 after being tested before the third round of the Travelers Championship, the PGA Tour said. 

Day was tested after potentially coming in contact with Denny McCarthy, who withdrew from the tournament Friday. 

Officials have decided to have him play as a single Saturday as a precautionary measure.

Two more players withdrew because of the coronavirus Friday -- Denny McCarthy for a positive test, and Bud Cauley, who tested negative but decided to pull out after playing alongside McCarthy on Thursday.

There have been seven COVID-19-related withdrawals from the Connecticut event.
