Lake Buena Vista, FL (Sports Network) - A day after struggling to complete his round, Charlie Beljan put together a 1-under 71 on Saturday to finish three rounds of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic with a 2-stroke lead.
Beljan ended 54 holes at 13-under-par 203. He will go for his first tour title on Sunday and needs to finish no worse than solo 13th to keep his tour card for next year.
He is 139th on the money list and needs a good finish and that is one reason he didn't withdraw from the tournament.
On Friday, Beljan battled a rapid heart rate and struggled with his breathing throughout the round. He spent the night in the hospital and got about an hour of sleep before being released Saturday morning.
Brian Gay and Josh Teater both shot 5-under 67 on Saturday. They moved into a share of second place at minus-11 with Charlie Wi (70). Wi bogeyed the final two holes to drop out of a share of the lead.
Camilo Villegas, who is 150th on the money list, managed a 2-under 70 to end at 10-under-par 206. He shares fifth place with Henrik Stenson (71), Robert Garrigus (70), Daniel Chopra (70), Vaughn Taylor (68), Matt Every (70) and Tommy Gainey (70).
The third round was played on the Magnolia Course at Walt Disney World Resort after players split the first two rounds on the Magnolia and Palm Courses, while playing with amateur partners.
