Eddie Pepperell, who early in his second round led by five strokes, ended up joint 24th in the Spanish Open at Catalunya yesterday.

The Frilford Heath golfer’s hopes of a first European Tour win were dashed by a nightmare seven-over par 79 in the third round on Saturday.

Pepperell returned a level-par 72 yesterday to finish on 290 and earn £12,200.

He finished six shots behind the winner, veteran Spaniard Miguel-Angel Jimenez, who beat Australian Richard Green and Belgium’s Thomas Poeters at the first hole of a sudden-death play-off.
