LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Charlie Beljan had trouble breathing before he teed off, and paramedics worried about his blood pressure at the turn. He didn't stop playing Friday at Disney until he had an 8-under 64 and a three-shot lead.
Moments later, Beljan was loaded onto a stretcher and taken to the hospital.
Exactly what was ailing Beljan was not immediately known, though it was clear he was struggling the way he bent over to breath, sat down on the golf course to rest. That he had the lead at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic was simply amazing.
Still to be decided is whether Beljan can play the final two rounds.
