Tom Lewis speaks exclusively to GiveMeSport about his ambitions for the BMW PGA Championship...

Tom Lewis say he has taken plenty of confidence from the consistency of his recent performances, as he looks forward to the the European Tour's flagship BMW PGA Championship event at Wentworth.

Speaking at the Wentworth clubhouse, Lewis was excited about his third attempt at the PGA Championship.

After he finished tied 15th at the Spanish Open and tied eighth in the Trophée Hassan II, Lewis seemed keen to build on his recent good form.

The 2011 Portugal Masters champion told GiveMeSport: "I'm looking forward to this week. If you look at my results this year, compared to the previous two years, they have been a lot more consistent.

"I've put a lot of pressure on myself in previous years, but now I can actually settle down and look at what I need to do."

Lewis, who only turned pro in 2011, will be up against ten major champions, five former number one players, and four players currently in the top ten, at Wentworth. But the 23-year-old maintains that he is solely focused on improving his game.

"Now I'm playing like I used to. I have played well in previous weeks and now I'm just looking to elaborate on that, keep chipping away and get better. 

"I'm showing good form at the moment but I don't feel like I'm anywhere close to where I can be. If I can keep improving every week, my week will come. From there on, I can take confidence from that and keep building," said Lewis.

"I came here a couple of weeks ago and set up a plan.Including every scenario I might face. I'm going to stick to that plan and see if it works, if not, we will alter it for next year.

"I never really follow the scores, I just do what I can do. But I will know, in the back of my head, what some of the scores are. The greens are playing firm, the fairways are firm and if the wind gets up a little bit, it can always swirl between the trees, so the scores will always vary."

Lewis teed off at 11.05am this morning, in the second to last group. But he was adamant that his late start will have no effect on his game.

"I will just go out and stick to my game plan. The last five weeks I've played, I have been out last. But the week before that, I went out first. I haven't really had a draw that's been in the middle of the field, so it's not going to be anything out of the ordinary for me."
