There is just one round left to play at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and Charlie Beljan is 18 holes away from an inspiring victory.
Beljan is the story of the tournament after shooting a 68 and a 64 in the first two rounds, despite being in clear distress during his second run through the course. He was taken to the hospital following the round, as noted by ESPN's Bob Harig, and was released this morning.
Harig's report quotes Beljan saying the following:
I've never been that scared. All the doctors said that they thought everything was good. They thought maybe it was just an anxiety, turned into a panic attack, and then not having a chance to kind of sit down and take a breather. And then the paramedics show up out there and just everything kind of spiraled. We'll see what we can do today, though. We look forward to it. And hopefully regardless of the score, just complete 18 holes.
The article also noted that Beljan was advised not to play golf, but he refused to stay off the course and shot a 71 in Round 3 to maintain a two-stroke lead over the competition at 13 under.
Brian Gay and Josh Teater each impressed by shooting a 67, and they join Charlie Wi in a tie for second place at 11 under. There is a group of seven players tied for fifth place with a score of 10 under.
Here are the highlights and leaderboard from today's action.
Charlie Beljan showed his composure on the green on hole No. 7 despite having a wild 24 hours leading up to the round. He sank this nine-foot put for birdie.
Brian Gay makes this 19-foot putt for birdie, ensuring that Beljan does not take too big of a lead into the final round.
