For Phil Mickelson, there weren't any more cons about turning pro.

Especially after the three-time NCAA champion qualified for the U.S. Open with a 132, which included a sizzling 63 to tie the course record at Farmington Country Club in Germantown, Tenn.Sectional qualifying for golf's national championship concluded at four sites on Tuesday.

The Open will be played at Pebble Beach June 18-21.

Mickelson, the stylish left-hander who won the NCAA title last week, will no longer have to abandon the huge paychecks that come with high finishes in PGA Tour events - like he had to last year after becoming the second amateur to win a PGA event by taking the Northern Telecom Open.

"I'm just excited because I can't think of a better place to start a professional career than Pebble Beach and the U.S. Open," said Mickelson, a four-time All-American at Arizona State.

Lance Ten Broeck led qualifying at Germantown with a 131. Dan Forsman also had a 132.

Other qualifiers included Jay Haas, Gil Morgan, Mark McCumber, Phil Blackmar and Willie Wood.

There were several PGA Tour players attempting to qualify at Germantown, since this week's stop is the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tenn.

Ten Broeck, a 14-year veteran whose best finish was a second-place showing in last year's Chattanooga Classic, shot 66-65.

"It was very sweet," Ten Broeck said. "It's tough to play 36 holes in the heat and with the mental anguish of not knowing what score it would take to make it."

Michael Walton, who had a course-record 65 on Monday before play was suspended, came back with a 70 and led four qualifiers at the Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Ga.

David Duval, a junior at Georgia Tech who led the Atlanta Classic after 54 holes last month, also got in with his second 70. He joins Yellow Jacket teammate Jimmy Johnston, who qualified Monday at the Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Md.

Jay Delsing had a 135 to lead three qualifers at Forest Hills Country Club in Chesterfield, Mo. Delsing, a PGA regular who reached his second straight U.S. Open, missed the cut by one last year at Hazeltine National Golf Club.
