LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Charlie Beljan has separated himself from the pack here at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, leading by two at 12 under with five holes left in his round.
But he’s experiencing shortness of breath and an elevated heart rate. Beljan suffers from asthma and it’s believe to be related to that, according to officials. Stay tuned. For now, though, a member of the medical staff is on hand with Beljan to keep an eye on him.
Meanwhile, Henrik Stenson is two shots back and is 6 under through 16 holes today on the Palm Course.
Behind them is where the logjam begins. Eight players are tied at 9 under with a couple of them still on the golf course. Among that group? Camilo Villegas, Kevin Chappell and Mark Anderson, all of whom entered the week outside the top 125 on the money list.
Another seven players are a stroke behind that at 8 under, including Tommy Gainey, who is looking for his second win in as many starts.
