2019 Mass Amateur
Throwing it back to the 2019 Mass Amateur, DeLisio defeated Jimmy Hervol 3&2 I the 36-hole match.
DiLisio became the 77th player to win the Massachusetts Amateur.
In the match, DiLisio wasted no time, taking a 1 up lead after the first hole when he drained a 15-foot birdie putt that Hervol couldn’t match.
Hervol won the third hole to even the match, but DiLisio regained momentum by winning the next three holes in the match, on Holes 6, 10 and 12, respectively, to move to 3-up.
The 3-up lead remained intact until the 18th hole, when Hervol’s 12-foot birdie putt cut into DiLisio’s lead ahead ahead of the break.
In the second half of the match, DiLisio increased his lead to 5-up by the 30th hole.
Needing to at least halve the hole, Hervol tapped in a par-putt on Hole 31 and won 32 with a conceded eagle putt to bring the match within two, but after they both carded pars on the par-4 33rd hole, DiLisio finished off Hervol with his five foot birdie putt on the par-3 34th hole.
