Charlie West of Des Moines loves playing on small town golf courses.
After the way he played in his first time on the Humboldt Country Club golf course last Saturday (June 6), you better believe he’ll never forget Humboldt.
West, 29, shot a 3-under-par 105 to win the 69th Annual George Lee Memorial Golf Tournament. West fired rounds of 35-34-36 to edge Humboldt native Christian Birdsell, who was runner-up with a 107. Birdsell shot 37-36-34. Austin Morrow of Fort Dodge, who won the title last year with a 107, was third this year with a 108.
