    • Jason Bohn suffers mild heart attack during tournament
    • 42-year-old in stable condition in hospital

    (CNN)Golfer Jason Bohn is in a stable condition after suffering a mild heart attack at the Honda Classic event in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

    The 42-year-old American reported chest pains and called for medics shortly after putting-out Friday's second round at the PGA National course, according to the official PGA website.
      Bohn was taken to the nearby Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center where tests revealed the extent of his condition.
        PGA Tour Media later posted an update on Twitter confirming Bohn was stable but was due to undergo more tests Saturday.
        The two-time winner on the PGA Tour had fired a two-over-par 72 Friday to make the cut for the weekend but immediately withdrew from the tournament.
        Fellow golfers were quick to rally round their colleague on social media.
          "My thoughts and prayers for Jason Bohn," posted PGA Tour player Dicky Pride.
          World No. 265, Chesson Hadley, added: "Glad to hear Jason Bohn is doing well. Scary moment after the round. Looking forward to seeing him back out here soon."
          Meanwhile golf announcer and coach, Peter Kostis, tweeted: "Wow! You just never know. Thoughts and well wishes for Jason Bohn after suffering a heart attack today. Get well soon!"
          Bohn is currently ranked No. 71 in the world and has been a regular on the PGA Tour since 2004.
          The native of Lewisburg, Pensylvannia claimed a career high six top-ten finishes over the 2014-15 season although his last tournament victory came at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 2010.

          Fowler in front, McIlroy going home

          Elsewhere at the PGA National Friday, Rickie Fowler scored his second straight four-under-par 66 to lead the tournament on eight-under-par.
          American Jimmy Walker is a shot back in second while Spain's Sergio Garcia is in third position on six-under-par.
          There was to be no joy for World No 1. Rory McIlroy, however, as he failed to make the cut after a disappointing round of 72 left him four-over-par for the tournament.
