Former BYU golfers Nick Becker and Clay Ogden qualified for the second round of the PGA Tour Qualifying School.

Becker, by finishing tied for 19th this past week at a tournament in Santee, Calif., qualified for the second stage.

Ogden, who graduated with Becker in 2007, qualified for the second stage two weeks ago. Another golfer with Utah ties, Boyd Summerhays, also qualified.

A number of other golfers from the state of Utah also did not qualify for advancement. Barry Schenk, Nick Micek, Tony Finau and Nic Van Vuuren were among those who did not advance, as well as former BYU golfer Jake Ellison.
