Pep­perell takes big lead into fi­nal day

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RESULTS / ROUND-UP -

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.
