Pepperell takes three-stroke lead into British Masters final round

Pepperell takes three-stroke lead into British Masters final round

The 27-year-old from Oxford started the day with a three-shot lead and ended it ahead by the same margin thanks to a rock-solid one-under-par 71.

Eddie Pepperell holds a three-shot lead at the British Masters as the big names in the field were blown off track on a blustery second day at Walton Heath.

The nearest challengers to Pepperell, who won the Qatar Masters this year and almost made it into Europe's Ryder Cup team, were Matt Wallace (72) and Julien Guerrier, who was 3 under after 15 holes of his second round when play was suspended.

Pepperell won his first European Tour title in Qatar earlier this season and has also recorded two runners-up finishes and tied for sixth in the Open at Carnoustie, despite playing the final round with a hangover. 'I guess people have different thresholds when it comes to mental fatigue and I'm sure I'll feel exhausted eventually, ' Fleetwood said.

Pepperell was only two in front after he reeled off six pars in a row, but had more breathing space when he sunk a 14-foot putt for an eagle three at 11.

"I just had a nightmare on the greens really". New position for me, first time I've ever gone out there with a three-shot lead on a Saturday so, to have maintained it, I would say is not a failure.

"You have to play well here every day or at least get a round like's what could end up winning me this golf tournament", Thomas said.

Fleetwood's Ryder Cup team-mate and Race to Dubai rival Francesco Molinari is six shots behind, while England's Richard McEvoy is among a pack of five on four under.

"I've seen other guys make them every other week and always thought, 'I feel like I hit good iron shots but have never made one'". I want to be Postman 2.' There are definite similarities between Postman 1 (Ian Poulter, of course) and the ebullient Londoner, who already has four victories playing in only his 50th European Tour event.
