Tom Lewis looks at Justin Rose for inspiration

Tom Lewis has stated that he has looked at the way Justin Rose has climbed to the top sphere of the golfing world and that has inspired him to overcome his own issues with self doubt and confidence as well.

Lewis first made a huge splash in the golfing circuit when he put a 65 on the board at the Royal St. George’s back in 2011, the lowest ever score managed by an amateur golfer in the history of The Open Championship, a record that still stands, which saw him share the lead for a brief period of time.

He ultimately finished the event at 30th position and earned the silver medal as the leading amateur golfer of the event before he turned professional and went on to win the Portugal Masters which was his third event as a professional.

However, he has struggled a lot since then but he has now got some of his old form back and lies at 90th position on the money list of the European Tour. He stated that he has managed to keep his card and he will target better results going into the new season.

He also pointed at how Justin Rose had struggled to make the cut in his first 21 events as a professional before making it finally and he mentioned that the cream always rises to the top, no matter what.

And speaking during the Portugal Masters, he mentioned how he thought he would struggle if he did not get his act together. but taking inspiration from Justin Rose who won his first major title this year, Lewis has done more or less well this year than he did previously and he can only use the positives to get even better when the European Tour gets back next season again.
