Jason Bohn arrives to The Barclays at Bethpage State Park as #125 on the FedExCup Points List. Bohn will need to play well enough to move at least #100 to qualify for the Deutsche Bank Championship. When asked if he was OK with being the Bubble Boy, he said that he was perfectly fine with that because it was better to be the Bubble Boy than not be in The Barclays.
He knew that he was 123rd on the FedExCup Points List when he was playing in the Wyndham Championship and that he controlled his own destiny. He played well early in the tournament but played terribly in the second round and missed the cut. As a result, he spent the entire weekend feeling bad and nervously awaiting the conclusion of the tournament. Now that he is in The Barclays, he feels like he can play with nothing to lose. It is a different feeling from the Wyndham Championship when he had everything to lose and he is very excited to get to the course with that new perspective. While acknowledging that the number of 125 for the Playoffs is a bit large, he said that he is very supportive of that number this week.
20 years ago, he gave up his amateur status when he made a hole-in-one for $1 million. Since then, he has received a $50,000 annuity every year with this year being his last year. After accepting a complement for his choice of sweater vest during that 1992 round, he said that he knows how important that moment was in his life and he will be sad when the final check arrives this year because every year he sits his family around the television to watch the video of that hole-in-one in an annual tradition. He and his wife plan to give that $50,000 to charity in an effort to support some young people.
