Dustin Johnson, who currently holds the number one position in the World Golf Rankings, has withdrawn from this week’s PGA Tour event, the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, citing the diagnosis.

“Obviously, I am very disappointed,” said Johnson, who holds 23 PGA Tour wins for his career. “I was really looking forward to competing this week but will do everything I can to return as quickly as possible.”

According to the PGA Tour, the 36-year-old Johnson was experiencing symptoms late Sunday evening, and failed to improve by Tuesday. He subsequently took a coronavirus test which came back positive. He’ll be replaced in the 78-player Las Vegas field by first alternate J.T. Poston.

Apple has announced the new iPhone 12 which also comes in a “mini” version. The term “mini” is being used for the first time by Apple on the iPhone line, after they used it on the iPod mini, iPad mini, and Mac mini in recent years.

The iPhone 12 “mini” comes in a smaller 5.4″ screen – which is smaller than an old iPhone 6 and just a bit bigger than the iPhone 5. The phone has been made smaller by removing the touch id and reducing the bezels around the display.
