Lewis wants to build on Saudi showing

5th February 2019, 18:08 by Aidan Perkins

Tom Lewis says his third-place finish in last weekend's Saudi International can be a platform for success this year.

The Englishman shot a brilliant final-round 65, which began with five birdies in a row, to end the tournament on -16, three shots behind winner Dustin Johnson.

Lewis, who has won the Portugal Masters on the European Tour twice and also claimed the Bridgestone Challenge tournament last year, is hoping for more success in 2019.

Reflecting on his final round and what the rest of the season holds, he told the European Tour website: "I was happy with that (final round start).

"We did really well, me and (caddie) John, working out some numbers. I was able to hole the putts and I couldn’t have asked for a better start.

"Unfortunately, I didn't kick on from there.

"Hopefully if I can just start better and then carry on doing what I'm doing when I do shoot 1-over, then maybe I'll walk away with a trophy."
