Lake Buena Vista, Fla. • Charlie Beljan had trouble breathing even before he teed off, called for paramedics when he made the turn and even told his caddie at one point Friday that he thought he might die. With his job on the line at Disney, he kept right on playing until he had a remarkable 8-under 64 to build a three-shot lead going into the weekend.

The next question is if Beljan can even play on the weekend. Moments after signing his card, Beljan was loaded onto a stretcher and wheeled to an ambulance that took him to a hospital.


Angela Stanford shot a 5-under 67 at Mexico's Guadalajara Country Club to take a two-stroke lead over Inbee Park after the second round of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Stanford had an 11-under 133 total. —
