Jason Bohn Returns To The PGA Tour 7 Weeks After Heart Attack

Just seven weeks after suffering what doctors called a “mild heart attack” following the second round of the Honda Classic, Jason Bohn is back on the PGA Tour and teeing it up in this week’s RBC Heritage.

On Tuesday, Bohn acknowledged there was nothing “mild” about the incident. According to his doctors, the two-time Tour winner’s left anterior descending artery, also known as the “widowmaker,” was 99 percent blocked and he needed surgery to insert a stent.

“The opportunity that I have to play again is huge,” Bohn said. “The fact that I did it this quickly is a little surprising to me. I thought I might be out for a few months. Very grateful and thrilled to be here.”

Bohn’s doctors told him it was a “freak incident” that was caused by a plaque rupture. The 42-year-old began hitting golf balls 10 days ago and earmarked Hilton Head as a possible return date about three weeks ago.
