Paul Lei, Steven DiLisio win Junior Am titles

A 40-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole at Essex County Club pushed Paul Lei into the lead for good, and the 16-year-old from Ferncroft Country Club preserved his two-shot victory with a tap-in par at the last, winning the Massachusetts Junior Amateur on Wednesday.

Trailing Jackson Lang (Nashawtuc) by one stroke heading into the final round, Lei had two birdies and two bogeys in a solid 70, winning a Massachusetts Golf Association event for the first time. Lang (75) finished fourth, behind Matthew Naumec (71) of the Country Club of Wilbraham, and Jake Shuman (69) of Blue Hill Country Club.
