MIAMI (AFP) - Jason Bohn remained resting comfortably in a hospital intensive care unit on Saturday after suffering a heart attack following the second round of the PGA Honda Classic.

The 42-year-old American golfer had experienced chest pains during his second-round 72 and asked for medical attention after completing his round. He was taken from the course by ambulance to the hospital.

PGA event telecaster NBC reported on Saturday that Bohn had a stent inserted to combat an arterial blockage.

Bohn, twice a PGA Tour champion, was in stable condition and will undergo more tests throughout the weekend at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.

"Jason is resting comfortably and in good spirits," a statement from his agent said. "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."
