Pep­perell takes lead, Fleetwood slumps

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - SPORTS -

WAL­TON HEATH, ENG­LAND >> Ed­die Pep­perell moved into a three-stroke club­house lead and Tommy Fleetwood lost ground at the Bri­tish Masters Fri­day af­ter a sec­ond round when only three play­ers shot in the 60s at windy Wal­ton Heath.

World No. 2 Justin Rose made it through to the week­end but was 10 strokes off the pace as he seeks a toptwo fin­ish to re­claim his place atop the rank­ings.

Twenty play­ers were yet to fin­ish their sec­ond rounds when play was sus­pended be­cause of dark­ness.

Pep­perell, who was along­side Fleetwood in a four-way share of the firstround lead, fol­lowed up a 67 with a 3-un­der 69 and was the only player in the 124-man field to shoot two rounds un­der 70. He was on 8-un­der over­all.

Hav­ing made a hole-in-one on Thurs­day, Pep­perell added to his high­light reel by chip­ping in at the par-4 third hole for one of his five birdies Fri­day.
