After a sleepless night at the hospital and despite a doctor's recommendation not to play, Charlie Beljan was back Saturday at the Walt Disney World Resort and planned to play the third round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.
The trip to Disney World this week for many PGA Tour players brings great anxiety. For the likes of bubble boy James Driscoll and many others, staying inside the top 125 on the money list remains priority No. 1, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
Troy Merritt's day at Disney sure did finish with a bang. First he ended up No. 125 on the PGA Tour money list to end the year. Minutes later he birdied in a playoff to win the $1 million Kodak Challenge, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
Justin Leonard's birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have won the Children's Miracle Network Classic lipped out, and then he fell from a sudden-death playoff won by Stephen Ames on Sunday at the Walt Disney World Resort.
He didn't win the Children's Miracle Network Classic, didn't take home a trophy or one of those goofy oversized checks. But with a T-15 finish on Sunday, he won something even better -- a job for next season.
