KAWAGOE, Japan (AP) Bryson DeChambeau's hopes of getting his season back on track with an Olympic medal cratered Sunday after he tested positive for COVID-19 before leaving the United States for Tokyo.

The 2020 U.S. Open champion will be replaced by Patrick Reed.

USA Golf sent word on Sunday in Japan that DeChambeau, who won last year's U.S. Open at Winged Foot but has struggled through a drama-filled summer in 2021, had tested positive as part of the final protocol before leaving for Japan.
