Mental Toughness In Action: Tom Lewis 2019 British Open

Congratulations to SPMI athlete Tom Lewis who this past weekend dug deep after ending the first day at the British Open in 118th place. Tom was then able to work his way through, shot by shot, and hole by hole to finish tied in 11th place in golf's last major of the year! One important lesson for all athletes is that mental toughness isn't just about how well one performs under pressure. It is also about how well an athlete responds when the odds are against him. Attitude, mindset, and patience were some of the key contributing factors to Tom's huge comeback, jumping 107 places in just 3 days! We are looking forward to continuing this momentum and the learning experiences that came with it to further elevate his mental toughness and continuing success.
