''I had blockage in my heart, so yeah it was a heart attack,'' Sutton told the Naples Daily News. ''They put a stent in, and I'm fine now.''

The 55-year-old Sutton withdrew Friday after playing the first eight holes in 5 over.

''I just said, `Something's wrong. I don't know what it is,''' Sutton told the Daily News.

The 1983 PGA Championship winner won 14 times on the PGA Tour. He also captained the 2004 U.S. Ryder Cup team.
