Top field at WFGT Ritz tourney

The West Florida Golf Tour's tee times are out for Wednesday's tournament at the Ritz-Calrton Members Golf Club.

And there's some interesting players competing.

Former Lakewood Ranch High standout Seath Lauer, fresh off advancing from the PGA Tour's pre-qualification stage of Q-School, is entered.

So is Jim Chancey, who fared decent in this year's U.S. Senior Open.

Plus former Nationwide Tour member Brennan Webb, 2010 United States Open participant Travis Hampshire and hottest player on tour, Matthew Galloway, are in the field.

Webb, Hampshire and Galloway are in the top four on the WFGT's Order of Merit.

Galloway recently won the Tour's stop at the Legacy where he set a new course record. That was followed up with a second-place finish at TPC Prestancia, which has allowed Galloway to vault past Webb for No. 3 on the Order of Merit.

The Tour's money leader, Joey Lamielle, is listed as well as Travis Perkins, who played on the PGA Tour.

Speaking of the PGA Tour, former three-time winner Robert Gamez is entered.

Even the amateurs in the mini-tour event carry big names.

For instance, Andre Ginola is slated to play the event.

Ginola's father, David, is a former French international soccer player who played his club soccer in the English Premier League for Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Everton.

Nick Torrance is another amateur in the tourney and is based out of the David Leadbetter Golf Academy at IMG Academies.

It's a star-studded and strong field of players, which should make for highly-competitive tournament.

Here's the list of tee times
