Amateur Tom Lewis is tied for the lead at the British Open after shooting a record 5-under 65.
The 20-year-old Lewis posted the lowest round ever by an amateur in golf's oldest major, pulling even with Thomas Bjorn at Royal St. George's on Thursday.
Lewis becomes the first amateur to lead after a round at a major since 1976, when Mike Reid was up by three strokes heading into the second day.
The young Englishman broke the Open scoring record for an amateur, the 66 posted by Frank Stranahan in 1950 and matched by Tiger Woods (1996) and Justin Rose (1998).
