June 29 (Reuters) - South African golfer Dylan Frittelli will miss this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club after testing positive for COVID-19, the PGA Tour said.

Frittelli, who missed the cut at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut, is the fourth golfer to test positive since the elite U.S. Tour resumed on June 11.

"I am experiencing no issues and feel great physically and was surprised and disappointed to learn of the positive test," Frittelli said, adding that he would undergo a period of self-isolation.
