Professional golfer Jason Bohn went through a pretty scary incident this past weekend as he competed in the Honda Classic. On Friday, he was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the course and was later found to have a 99 percent blockage in one of his arteries.
That led to him having a heart attack and he didn’t even know it. He spoke on a PGA Tour radio program that he wasn’t even aware of what was going on.
“The craziest part about the whole situation is I had no idea that I was having a heart attack,” he told the radio show. “My doctors all have told me that had I passed out or gone down on the golf course that they really don’t think they would have had time to get the proper blood thinners in me, and put the stent in that they were able to do in time. I got one hell of a mulligan, Matt. That’s all I can say.”

That is certainly one scary incident for anyone to endure, especially an athlete who is going to be just 43 in April. We are all glad that he is okay and hope he gets any kind of treatment he needs.
