Pepperell leads British Masters

LONDON

Oct 14, 2018-

Eddie Pepperell carved open a three-stroke advantage at the halfway point of the British Masters on Friday as Ryder Cup hero Tommy Fleetwood tumbled down the leaderboard. Pepperell and Fleetwood were in a four-way share of the lead after matching 67s in the opening round, but the latter slumped to a 77 in round two after he failed to make a single birdie. In contrast, Pepperell’s 69 left him eight-under going into the weekend with compatriot Matt Wallace his nearest challenger. Frenchman Julien Guerrier was also five-under with three holes remaining when play was suspended due to darkness. (AFP)
