Now COVID-free, Carlota Ciganda (70) in mix at Drive On Championship

Carlota Ciganda is yet another LPGA pro who has tested positive for COVID-19, but she’s thankful her ordeal is out of the way as she bids to win the Drive On Championship this weekend.

About six weeks ago or so, Ciganda felt sick, with a fever and muscle aches. The Spaniard was diagnosed with COVID-19 while at her American home in Arizona.

She went through two weeks of quarantine and a series of tests before being cleared to play. She estimates she tested positive three or four times before finally returning negative tests.

“After 10 days, I was feeling fine,” Ciganda said.
