Duncan, Mickelson Top Field of 120

Pat Duncan of Rancho Santa Fe and Phil Mickelson of San Diego qualified as the two amateur entrants to the Shearson Lehman Brothers Andy Williams Open, finishing at the top of a field of 120 golfers Saturday at Torrey Pines.

Duncan will be making his second appearance as an amateur in the tournament after shooting a two-under-par 70 on the South Course. Duncan, a landscape architect, is the only amateur to make the two-round cut in the four years amateurs have been allowed to qualify for the tournament. Duncan finished 50th, nine shots behind winner Bob Tway in 1986.

Mickelson is a three-time San Diego junior player of the year and was named the junior player of the year by Golf Magazine. Mickelson, who attended University of San Diego High School, shot a 71.

Duncan and Mickelson will join 154 professional golfers for the tournament Feb. 16-21 at Torrey Pines.
