Charlie Beljan more than doubled his career earnings by winning the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, and its $846,000 first prize. The total purse was $4.7 million.

Charlie Beljan took home $846,000 for winning the 2012 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. The tournament, at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., had a total purse of $4.7 million. Matt Every and Robert Garrigus each received $413,600 for finishing tied for second. Brian Gay received $225,600 for finishing in fourth, and the four golfers who tied for fifth received $165,088.

Beljan's winnings from this tournament more than doubles his career earnings, which now stand at $1,373,528. He entered the tournament at 139th on the PGA Tour's 2012 money list, and the win catapulted him all the way up to 63rd. The golfers who finish in the top 125 on the PGA Tour money list automatically get their card for the next season, avoiding stressful qualification processes.

Despite finishing in sixth place at the CMNHC and earning $112,800, Jerry Kelly finished outside the top 125 for 2012. However, he will get an exemption in 2013 due to his career earnings.
