I'm torn on Charlie Beljian's 2nd round at the Children's Miracle Network tournament (http://www.golfchannel.com/news/golftalkcentral/beljan-taken-to-hospital-after-disney-leading-round/). On one hand, it's impressive to put up such a good score under extreme medical distress. On the other hand, he could have died trying. What do you think - admirable or foolhardy?

And he wins the tournament by 2 strokes and earns a 2 year exemption!

I watched the entire tournament; following the coverage throughout.
I'm very happy that he now has the financial security he sought for his young family.
It's a shame that, due to the way that the tour works, he had to risk his health to get it,

He'll probably get offers/opportunities he never would have had, as a result,
I trust he has a good financial advisor.

I hope the doctors can find the cause of, and cure for, these episodes; so, that they won't be a continuing problem.

Turns out he's a bit of a hot head and expresses extremes of emotion pretty easily and publicly. Until he can get that under control, I don't think the sponsors will be beating a path to his door.

That's an issue his manager should discuss with him, ASAP.

Are there clues to the cause of his "episodes" there?
The "story" may have more interest, at the moment, though.
