After one round, the youngest player in the 105th Massachusetts Open Championship remains in the hunt.
Steven Dilisio of Swampscott, who at 16 is the youngest golfer competing, shot a 1-under par 71 and is tied for 19th after a round of play at the annual Mass Open being held this year at Weston Golf Club.
Tim Ailes is the leader after 18 holes, shooting an outstanding 7-under 65.
The golfers will play another round of 18 holes today, followed by a cut to the top 50 scorers or anyone within seven strokes of the leader. A final day of 18 holes will determine the winner on Thursday.
Dilisio leads a slew of locals in the field. Nick Pandalena shot 3-over to tie for 76th place while Frank Dully shot a 4-over. Peabody native Matt Adams turned in a plus-2 to sit tied for 61st, while young Paul Lei, who is from Middleton, also shot plus-1.
