Jordan Spieth, one of four players on the PGA Tour's policy board, didn't sound surprised at golf's first positive test. “So I feel confident, just in being on those phone calls, in what the PGA Tour is going to do going forward. So hopefully, it doesn't rise up pretty quick.”Under the tour's guidelines for a positive test, Watney is to self-isolate for at least 10 days.
