GOLF: Pepperell's bid hit by a 79
12:00am Monday 19th May 2014 in Sport
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.
