The first of six Massachusetts Amateur Public Links Championship qualifiers was held yesterday at Juniper Hill Golf Club in Northboro, and a local came in at the top of the field.
T.J. Vose of The Meadow at Peabody shot a 1-over par 72 to tie Brett Malboeuf of Cyprian Keyes for the lowest score of the day. Twenty other golfers also qualified for the championship, which will be played at Glen Ellen Country Club in Millis on August 5-6.
Vose birdied four holes and bogeyed five to account for his 72. Vose shot a 34 on the front nine and a 38 on the back nine.
The second qualifier will be held today at Beverly Golf & Tennis.
