PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Jason Bohn suffered a major heart attack Friday at The Honda Classic.
The 42-year-old was experiencing chest pains and called for a medic after putting out on the 18th hole at PGA National. He was taken by ambulance to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, where tests revealed a major heart attack.
Bohn was in stable condition and remained hospitalized overnight, and he had a stent put in on Saturday. He was scheduled to undergo more tests over the weekend.
His wife was home in Atlanta but his in-laws joined him at the hospital, as did fellow player George McNeill, who said Bohn was in good spirits.
Bohn, a two-time winner on the PGA TOUR, shot 72 to make the cut on the number but withdrew from the tournament after his second round.
Bohn's agent, Justin Richmond, released the following statement:
"Jason is resting comfortably and in good spirits. He is scheduled to have more tests this weekend. We know he appreciates the concern from so many people in the PGA TOUR family who have reached out."
There is no time frame on a release from Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center at this time.
