GOLF: Pepperell finishes off the pace
10:00am Monday 26th August 2013 in Sport
Frilford Heath’s Eddie Pepperell finished joint 28th on ten under par in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.
Englishman Tommy Fleetwood held his nerve to win the tournament in a play-off with Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher and Ricardo Gonzalez, of Argentina.
The 22-year-old matched Gallacher’s 18-under-par target thanks to an eagle on the 16th and a birdie on the last.
Gonzalez almost chipped in on the 18th to win the tournament outright.
But it was Fleetwood who prevailed in the play-off with the sole birdie on the 18th to clinch his first European Tour win.
