Sergio Garcia admits he would've been incredibly disappointed if he had caught Covid-19 from Nick Watney after he gave the American a lift to the RBC Heritage event.
The pair are neighbours in Austin and fast friends, and often travel to events together.
However, this time it took a dark twist as it was revealed that Watney later tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Both Garcia and Watney tested negative upon arrival, meaning the American must have caught the disease after arriving in South Carolina.
While this meant there was very little chance Garcia would've caught it from Watney, he admits he was concerned until the result came back to confirm he was still negative.
"I was a little bit afraid because I gave him a ride on Tuesday, but when we landed, we got tested," said Garcia, according to ESPN.
"We were both negative. So it was all good. Then I was surprised to ear that he tested positive three days later. I got my test done yesterday and I was negative.
"But it was about 4 ½ hours of waiting, very anxiously, hoping that it was negative because, obviously, after missing the cut last week by one and this week finally playing nicely in the second round and being in the middle of the pack, if I would have given positive, then I wouldn't be able to play on the weekend and I would have been very, very disappointed."
Garcia sits two shots behind the leaders of the RBC Heritage going into the final day of play and maintains a good chance of challenging for the title if he can get off to a good start.
