Pep­perell’s ace shot

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT TRIATHLON -

ED­DIE Pep­perell recorded a hole-in-one on the way to claim­ing a share of the lead with a five-un­der 67 af­ter the first round of the Bri­tish Masters yes­ter­day, while tour­na­ment host Justin Rose strug­gled to a 74. Fel­low English­men Tommy Fleet­wood and Matt Wal­lace also shot 67s on a windy day at the Wal­ton Heath course. The first hole-in-one of Pep­perell’s ca­reer came in spec­tac­u­lar style as his 5-iron on the 9th hit the bot­tom of the flag and bounced high in the air away from the hole be­fore spin­ning back into the cup. “It was a bizarre shot,” he said.
