Jason Day has been cleared to continue playing at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut after testing negative for Covid-19.

The Australian former world No.1 asked to be tested just before the third round in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Officials opted to play him as a single Saturday as a precautionary measure.

Two more players withdrew because of the coronavirus on 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.
