Area players Tim Dilli, Tim Walko and Jay Stosz were among the six golfers to advance yesterday in sectional qualifying for the U.S. Amateur championship at Woodholme Country Club.

Dilli, a one-time Maryland State Amateur finalist from Hunt Valley Golf Club, shot 71-75146; Walko, also from Hunt Valley, 77-71148, and Stosz, from Hobbit's Glen Golf Club, who has been a solid competitor in area tournaments, 77-72149.

Joey Maxon, from Dover, Del., was the medalist with 73-72145, and was joined by former Maryland Amateur Stroke Play titlist Bill Stout, from Washington Golf & CC, 71-78149; and one-time Middle Atlantic Amateur champion David Oakley, Westwood CC, 78-71149.

The 94th annual championship will be conducted Aug. 22-28 at TPC-Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., beginning with two days of on-site qualifying for places in the 64-man draw.

Dilli and Stout had the low rounds in the morning, and Walko and Oakley had the low afternoon rounds.

After two birdies and two bogeys, Dilli dipped to 2-under par with an eagle-3 at the 458-yard 18th hole in his first round, then did a good job of holding the afternoon round together on the back nine.

Walko, 19, who will be a freshman at Campbell University, had two unusual rounds. In the morning, he had five birdies, seven bogeys and one double bogey. He came back with six birdies and four bogeys, and totaled only 13 pars for the day.
