Pepperell takes big lead into final day
EDDIE Pepperell will take a threeshot lead into the final day of the British Masters as he seeks the second European Tour title of his career.
Pepperell carded a third round of 71 at Walton Heath to finish nine under par, with fellow Englishman Jordan Smith, Sweden’s Alexander Bjork, American Julian Suri and France’s Julien Guerrier all six under.
Victory today would take Pepperell into the world’s top 35 and almost certainly secure a Masters debut in 2019. The top 50 at the end of the year are guaranteed a place in the first major of the year at Augusta.
