Tom Lewis leads the British Open

Tom Lewis, an amateur golfer competing in this week’s British Open, hit four consecutive birdies near the end of his round to give him a score of 65 – the lowest ever by an amateur in the British Open. He’s also the first amateur in 43 years to find himself atop the leaderboard at the Open.

His statement after the round tells us a bit about how to focus in a big competition – on one thing at a time: “I was happy to get the drive off the tee at the first, and that was all that mattered.”

Go Tom.
