Belden junior golfer Noah West fired a final-round 3-under-par 68 Thursday to climb from 40th to 10th place in the American Junior Golf Association’s Rome Classic in Rome, Ga.
West, 16, was a member of Tupelo High School’s Class 6A state champion golf team this spring.
He finished the three-day AJGA tournament at the Coosa Country Club with a 74-74-68 – 216 score for 3-over-par.
Cody Shafer, of Evans, Ga., won with a 3-under-par 206 in the 54-hole event.
West tied for 30th earlier this summer – June 7-10 – in the AJGA’s Quad Cities Tournament in Rock Island, Ill.
