SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The PGA tour is expanding its coronavirus testing partnership with Sanford Health. The Sioux Falls-based health care system will continue to test players, caddies, and essential personnel at tournaments through the end of June.

Since the collaboration began last June, Sanford has done more than 18,000 tests on the PGA and Champions Tours.

Sanford Health lab technicians travel to tournaments in one of three mobile testing units deployed across the country.

It arrives the Saturday prior to the tournament to begin processing tests.
