“Jason is resting comfortably and in good spirits,” his agent, Justin Richmond, said in a statement. “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.”
Tests Saturday found that Friday’s scare could have been far worse. Per the Associated Press:
“The 42-year-old golfer had a stent inserted Saturday for what he says was 99 percent blockage of a major artery. In a text exchange with [NBC Sports], Bohn says the blockage was in his left anterior descending artery — known as the ‘widow maker’ because it could lead to a major heart attack.”
Bohn, a Pennsylvania native who now resides in Atlanta, experienced chest pains Friday after finishing his second round at PGA National. According to Honda Classic officials, he sought the assistance of an on-site medic and was advised to take an ambulance to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center for further testing.
There, he was diagnosed with a mild heart attack, though he was considered stable.
According to a tournament statement, his in-laws are with him, while his wife is home with their children.
Though he was forced to withdraw from the Honda Classic, Bohn had made the cut, shooting rounds of 71-72 to put himself at 3 over par heading into the weekend.
