The victory comes just two days after the 28-year-old was taken to hospital with heart palpitations and earns him a PGA Tour card for the next two years.

Beljan finished the tournament on 16-under par at Magnolia Golf Club and moves from 139th to 63rd.

"'What a joy," he told PGATour.com. "This is the greatest feeling ever.

"Those five birdies in six holes made things a little bit easier. And then I threw a double bogey in there on the easiest hole on the golf course, but my thinking was I knew I had a five-shot lead.

"I made double and I actually wasn't even upset about it at all, because I still had a three-shot lead with four or five to play on a Sunday on the PGA Tour and that was all I thought about.'

Matt Every and Robert Garrigus finished joint second on 14-under after final rounds of 68, while Brian Gay ended up a further shot back after shooting 70.
