Jason Bohn suffered a major heart attack, not a mild one, as previously reported, according to Golf Digest’s Tim Rosaforte, who was exchanging texts with Bohn Saturday afternoon.
“He told me his LAD [left anterior descending artery] was 99 percent blocked,” Rosaforte reported on NBC’s telecast of the Honda Classic. “That’s the major artery, also known as the widow maker.”
Rosaforte said a stent was inserted and that he was resting comfortably in the intensive care unit at Gardens Medical Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Bohn, 42, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, complained of chest pains following his second round on Friday.
