Bohn makes cut in first start since heart attack

Jason Bohn was under little pressure to make the cut Friday at the RBC Heritage, but he shot a 2-under 69 to make the weekend in his first start since suffering a major heart attack at the Honda Classic in February.

"Feel awesome, actually," Bohn said after making four birdies and two bogeys on a cool and windy day at Harbour Town. "I can tell you the last couple of holes coming in I felt it, which is great. It's good. I put a little stress on the old ticker today, so that's good."

Bohn made the most of the fall season with top-3 finishes at the Shriners, Mayakoba and Frys.com Open. He made the cut at the Honda, but wasn't feeling well. Fortunately, a paramedic insisted he go to the ER, and that's when Bohn found out one of his arteries was 99 percent blocked.

Now, with this health in good shape, Bohn is back on Tour this week and he took a huge step Friday by playing a solid round to make the cut.

"Really proud of the way I kind of hung in there," he said. "To par the last couple of holes coming in out here, being this windy in these conditions was great for me. It brought the adrenaline back."
