LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Charlie Beljan had no reason to panic Sunday. His wild week at Disney ended with a comfortable lead and his first PGA Tour victory.

Beljan, who felt as if he was going to die Friday from a panic attack that sent him to the hospital, ran off four straight birdies around the turn and built a five-shot lead on the back nine. He closed with a bogey for a 3-under 69 and a two-shot win in the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

The 28-year-old rookie threw his putter and repeatedly pumped his fists. He was in danger of losing his card in the final event of the year, and now has a two-year exemption.

Tim Herron was the other winner, closing with a 69 to barely move into the top 125.
