Tim Dilli and Scott Hargest took a one-stroke lead after combining to shoot a 5-under-par 65 in the first round of the annual Five Farms Invitational at Baltimore Country Club yeterday.

Larry Storck and Moose Brown had a 66, and Mitch Wyatt and Ron Vanelli a 68 as only three of the 22 teams broke par 70 for the 6,844-yard East Course.

BCC members Dilli and Hargest each had two birdies on the front nine, Hargest holed a 100-yard shot for an eagle at the 603-yard 14th, and Dilli birdied the 15th as the team got to 7-under. The pair's lead narrowed considerably, however, after a bogey-bogey finish. Both players missed the green at the par-3 17th, and both three-putted the 18th.

The Hayfields CC entry of Brown, reigning Maryland State Mid-Am champion, and Storck, ended with eight birdies and totaled 27 putts, despite marring the effort with four bogeys. Wyatt, from Salisbury, and Vanelli, from Edison, N.J., were 4-under through eight holes, but could muster only one more birdie, at 17, to go with three bogeys.
