- The , open to all junior golfers in the area, was won by a single household.

The tournament went Green, as in , the brother and sister claiming the boys' and girls' overall titles respectively and both in comfortable fashion.

With Saturday's round called off at Azalea City Golf Course because of weather, the tournament came down to a one-day, 18-hole event. That was fine with the Greens. Alex shot a 1-under-par 71 to win the boys' division by three shots and Virginia turned in a round of 1-over 73 to win the girls' division going away.

In the tournament's only other division, Brendan Reilly won the boys' 14-and-under division with a score of 2-over 74.

"They had the pins in some weird locations and it was hard to make some putts,'' Alex Green said of his play. "I wasn't too happy with the way that I played to be honest with you. I hit it well, struck it well, I just couldn't get anything going around the greens. I made a couple of putts but my short game didn't really help. It's something to work on.''

A perfect day for golf found Green striking the ball well and making the shots necessary to win the tournament he also won two years ago. It is, he said, a good tournament at a good time of year to be playing.

"It kind of helps me realize what I need to work on at the end of the year and going into next year,'' he said. "It's a good way to survey it all.''

John Racciatti Jr. and Channing Flowers tied for second with equal scorecards of 2-over 74. Forrest Fontenot placed fourth at 79 with Walker Seales and David Ferguson tied for fifth with a score of 80.

Virginia Green, like her brother, said she didn't putt as well as she would have liked, but she finished so far ahead of the competition it wasn't needed on Sunday.

"Th course is in great shape,'' she said. "My putting was a little off. I could have played much better if I had made some more putts, but it was a good day. ... This really is a good tournament. There aren't too many tournaments to play in this time of year so I like playing in this every year. It's a good tournament to play in.''

Mary Shannon Kelley finished second with a 91, followed by Mariah Stewart, Brittany King and Jordan Revere.

In the 14-and-under boys division, Reilly bettered a strong field of young players with his 74. Felix Ronderos took second with a 76, followed by Luke Nicholas in third with a 79. Will McFadden finished fourth (81) and Andrew Graves was fifth (83).
