The 2010 Beth Daniel Junior Azalea golf tournament will be remembered not so much for the three-shot victories that were posted in the boys and girls divisions, but how those wins were accomplished.

Blake Kennedy of Moore won the boys title for the second straight year, firing an 8-under-par 63 Wednesday at the Country Club of Charleston that included a double bogey on the final hole. Kennedy had a 36-hole total of 137, three ahead of Austin Langdale of Townville and four shots better than Caleb Sturgeon of Laurens.

McKenzie Talbert of North Augusta birdied the final two holes to shoot 65 and also finished at 137, three in front of Louise Oxner of Greenville and five ahead of Jessica Hoang of North Augusta. Talbert won the Junior Azalea two years ago and tied for second last year.

Kennedy, who will be a junior at Dorman High School, said the best score he had ever recorded prior to Wednesday was a 65. The 63 is not only a personal best, but also a South Carolina Junior Golf Association record.

"Putting, that's all. That's pretty much how it is every day with my game, either on or off," he said when asked to explain the 11-stroke turnaround from Tuesday. But he said he never doubted his ability to come back.

"You never know when you're going to go out and career it the next day," said Kennedy, who already has committed to play at Clemson. "A bunch of us were talking on the range about going out and shooting 66. That kind of put a number in my head. I even sent my dad a text before I teed off and said it was going to be 66 or better today."

Kennedy, who shot 67-67--134 to win a year ago, parred the first three holes Wednesday, then went on a big run with birdies at 4, 6, 7 and 8 along with an eagle-3 on the fifth hole. He made the turn at 6-under 30, lipped out for birdie on 10, had a birdie attempt horseshoe out on 11, then birdied 12, 14, 15 and 16 to get to 10 under. He had a reasonable birdie opportunity at 17, but on the closing hole he pulled his tee shot into a fairway bunker, reached the green in 3 and then three-putted from 25 feet.

"I couldn't really be mad, even though I wanted that par putt to go in. I made a couple of putts I shouldn't have," he said.

It was not known whether Talbert's round was a girls South Carolina Junior Golf Association record, but it was certainly one of the most impressive efforts of the season and a personal best for the rising sophomore at Strom Thurmond High School, who like Kennedy had a double bogey on her card but no bogeys.

"Everything was going right for me," Talbert said. "My bad shots were good. My bad putts went in. It was the kind of day everything good happened."

Talbert, who won the 2008 Junior Azalea which was shortened to 18 holes because of rain, said this one meant even more.

"I felt like I would win (in 2008) because I was playing really well, but this one feels a whole lot better. I said coming into this week that I love this golf course. I don't know what it is, but I always play good. There's something about this golf course. Something always clicks here."

Talbert made two birdies and an eagle on the way to a front-nine 32, double-bogeyed the par-3 11th, then finished with birdies at 14, 15, 17 and 18.
