SANDWICH, England (AP) - Tom Watson produced some more British Open magic.
The younger Tom looked more like an amateur.
Twenty-year-old Tom Lewis, the first amateur to lead the Open since 1968, bogeyed two of the first six holes Friday to give up the top spot he shared with Thomas Bjorn.
Lewis was named after Watson, the five-time Open champion who still has plenty of game at age 61.
Two years ago, he nearly won the claret jug for a sixth time, losing to Stewart Cink in a playoff after making bogey on the 72nd hole. Watson got off to a slow start in this one, opening with a 72, but he gave everyone a charge at the par-3 sixth hole.
Going with a 4-iron, Watson sent the ball soaring to the green, then watched it bounce one time before dropping into the cup for a hole-in-one.
He threw both arms in the air, high-fived playing partner Henrik Stenson, shook hands with his other partner, Lewis, then took a bow toward the grandstand.
"Wish I could have seen it go in," Watson quipped as he walked toward the hole to retrieve his ball.
