Beljan leaves hospital, maintains lead

Doctors told Charlie Beljan he was in good enough health to leave the hospital Saturday morning, but perhaps not to play golf. With his job on the line and his name atop the leaderboard for the first time, Beljan ignored the recommendation and was glad he did. One day after a panic attack so severe that he struggled to breathe and feared for his life, Beljan managed just fine in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Despite a pair of early bogeys, and one nervous moment when he felt his chest tighten, he had a 1-under-par 71 that gave him a two-shot lead going into the final round at Disney. The 28-year-old rookie has a chance to do more than just keep his card. He’s one round away from winning on the PGA Tour. – AP
