LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Charlie Beljan had only an hour of sleep in the hospital before returning to Disney to protect his three-shot lead.

Beljan says he feared for his life during the second round when his heart was racing and he had shortness of breath. After signing for a 64, he left the scoring area on a stretcher and was taken to the hospital. Beljan said that tests showed nothing wrong, and he figures it was an anxiety attack that was out of control.

He says he was in his golf shoes until 4:30 a.m., slept for an hour and doctors said he was healthy enough to be released. Playing golf is his idea. He needs to play well at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic to keep his PGA Tour card.
