PGA Tour Media reported Bohn is in "great spirits" and slept well. It added he's set to undergo further testing at the hospital Saturday morning.

Friday night, PGA Tour Media reported Bohn is in stable condition at an area hospital.

Bohn finished the tournament with a score of three over par, shooting a 72 on Friday before withdrawing. Per Ron Mintz of MintzGolf.com, Bohn stayed overnight at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center before his Saturday tests.

According to Will Gray of the Golf Channel, the PGA Tour's official update on Bohn indicated he was having chest pains before going to the hospital when tests showed he suffered a mild heart attack.
