Amateur careerEdit

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.[2][3] He graduated from Alabama in 1995.

Professional careerEdit

While playing the Canadian Tour, Bohn shot a 58 in the final round to win the 2001 Bayer Championship.[4] 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.[5]

At the Greenbrier Classic in July 2015, Bohn shot a nine under par 61 during the third round that moved him from the cutline into the co-lead entering the final round. The round of 61 was Bohn's lowest ever career round on the PGA Tour. He also had his best FedEx Cup finish of 40th.
