Jason Bohn suffers mild heart attack at the Honda Classic
Jason Bohn, a two-time PGA Tour winner, was in stable condition in a Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., hospital Friday night having suffered what tour officials described as a mild heart attack after the second round of the Honda Classic.
The 42-year-old Bohn had shot a two-over 72, and his three-over 143 score made the cut on the number at PGA National’s Champion course. But after finishing play Friday, Bohn complained of chest pains and went to see the tour’s on-site medical staff. He was taken by ambulance to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, where according to the tour, tests revealed a mild heart attack.
The Associated Press reported Friday that Bohn would remain at the hospital overnight until more tests could be taken Saturday. He has withdrawn from the tournament.
Bohn’s playing partner, Johnson Wagner, told ESPN.com that Bohn (No. 71 on the World Ranking) seemed fine during the round. “We were B.S.ing all the last two days like Jason Bohn usually does,” Wagner said. “Had more fun than I have had in a long time playing golf because he’s such a great dude to play golf with.”
Bohn’s parents accompanied him to the Florida hospital. Bohn’s wife was back at their Atlanta home with the family’s two children.
During the 2015-’16 season, Bohn had played in seven events, missing just one cut and posting top-three finishes three times, including a playoff loss last November at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He currently sits 14th on the FedEx Cup points list.
