Lewis pays tribute to namesake Watson

English amateur Tom Lewis says he was "thrilled" to play alongside Tom Watson at the Open Championship, where the 20-year-old carded 65 to share the lead with Thomas Bjorn on day one.

Lewis, who was named after golfing legend Watson, had an impressive run of birdies from the 14th to the 17th which catapulted him into the lead at Royal St George's.
