Tom Lewis picks up Silver Medal

When Tom Lewis pulled on his golf shoes on Thursday morning to tee off with Tom Watson he must have been nervous.

But he didn't let it show in his golf and the youngster finished the week as the leading amateur in the Open, picking up the Silver Medal.

The 20-year-old played with Watson on the first two days and then partnered four-time major winner Phil Mickelson on day three, making it a superb experience.

He did struggle alongside Mickelson in the high winds and pouring rain and slumped to a third round 76 to stand at five over going into the final round.

Despite his disappointment after the third round, Lewis managed to hold his game together in the gusting wind of day four, shooting a 74, to end the week three shots clear of Peter Uihlein, the only other amateur to make it to the weekend.

He said: "It has been an amazing Open. I couldn't have asked for more."

Surely, it's only a matter of time before we see Tom Lewis competing in the top tournaments around the world, only this time without an [A] next to his name.
