DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Jack Nicklaus says he and his wife, Barbara, tested positive for the coronavirus at the onset of the pandemic.

Nicklaus says they stayed at home in Florida from about March 13 until they were "done with it" on April 20.

He says he had a sore throat and a cough, while Barbara had no symptoms of COVID-19.

Both turned 80 earlier this year.

Nicklaus says given their age, they were "a couple of the lucky ones."

Nicklaus says they have tested positive for antibodies.
