Rookie Golfer Charlie Beljan Wins at Disney for PGA Tour Victory

12 November 2012 No Comment

Rookie pro golfer Charlie Beljan won his first PGA Tour Tournament on Sunday at the Walt Disney World Resort – but it wasn’t an easy victory.

Although he played well throughout the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic – leading, in fact – his blood pressure spiked on Friday. This led to shortness of breath and a near-collapse during the final holes. After receiving medical attention, he returned to the course and ended up winning the entire tournament.

It truly was a fairy tale ending for this golfer, whose $846,000 winners check was almost double what he had earned this year.

Said Beljan after his win:

Every day I drove underneath that Disney sign coming here (and) it said ‘Welcome to Disney World, Where Dreams Come True. And that’s just what happened this week.
