Jason Duehn Bohn (born April 24, 1973) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Bohn was born in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. In 1992, while a sophomore on the Alabama golf team, Bohn was playing in a charity fund-raiser in Tuscaloosa when he made a hole-in-one worth $1 million. Bohn dropped his amateur status and golf scholarship on the spot and turned professional, as USGA rules did not carry an exemption for aces scored in the middle of regular golf rounds at the time, which the USGA adopted in 2006.[1][2] He graduated from Alabama in 1995.

Professional career[edit]

While playing the Canadian Tour, Bohn shot a 58 to win the 2001 Bayer Championship.[3] He also played the Nationwide Tour before earning promotion to the PGA Tour, where he has played since 2004. In 2005 he won the PGA Tour's B.C. Open.

During the 2009 season Bohn lost in a playoff at the Wyndham Championship along with Kevin Stadler to Ryan Moore.

In April 2010, Bohn won the 2010 Zurich Classic of New Orleans wire to wire, when he birdied three of the last four holes to win by two shots.[4]
