The European Tour said in a statement on Wednesday that the pair dined at a local restaurant on Tuesday evening outside the tournament bubble, "hence compromising the Tour's health guidelines, and were withdrawn from the tournament with immediate effect as a result."

In comments published by the European Tour, Catlin offered apologies for his behaviour.

"I apologise to my fellow players and everyone involved with the tournament this week for this error of judgement," he said.

"I understand the European Tour's decision and accept the sanction."

Catlin will be replaced in the tournament at Hanbury Manor by South African Wilco Nienaber.
