Jordan Spieth said he tested positive for Covid-19 last month but is unsure how he contracted the virus.
“I’ve been careful,” Spieth said Tuesday from the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic. “Anytime I’m around a group of people I’ve been trying to be outside [because], one, I don’t really want to get it, and two, I don’t really want to miss tournament weeks. It’s just kind of odd.”
Spieth said he began feeling symptoms around April 20, during an off-week at home in Dallas; he said he diagnosed his condition through self-administered tests. “It was bad for a day and a half and then it was just kind of annoying for the next five days, kind of lost energy, and sinus stuff,” he said. “And then after that I started to kind of get full strength back and I would say the last week to week and a half now I’ve been acting as if it never happened.”
