Florida State University alum Seath Lauer, who played at Lakewood Ranch High, tried Monday qualifying for another Nationwide Tour event.

Last week, he attempted to earn a spot into the South Georgia Classic.

On Monday, Lauer carded a 1-over par 72 to miss out on a berth into the Stadion Classic at UGA slated to begin Thursday in Athens, Ga.

There were two different sites to qualify from as Lauer joined other West Florida Golf Tour members at Achasta Golf Club.

Only seven players qualified from that venue, the last spots came at 6-under par 65.

WFGT participant Devin Spies qualified after a 7-under par 64.

Former Bradenton Academy alum Casey Wittenberg posted a 1-over par 73 at the Jennings Mill Country Club qualifying site.

However, the scoring on that course was much different as the last player in shot 3-under par 69.

Wittenberg, who shares David Whelan as a coach with LPGA Tour star and friend Paula Creamer, also tried qualifying for last week's John Smoltz headlined Nationwide Tour stop like Lauer.

Matthew Galloway also attempted to qualify once again.

Galloway, who is No. 2 on the WFGT's Order of Merit, also shot a 73.

Former IMG Academy standouts Tyler Leon and Ty Tryon failed with a 77 and 78, respectively.
