Pepperell wins British Masters

 

England's Eddie Pepperell won his second European Tour title with a two-shot victory at the British Masters.

The 27-year-old took a three-shot lead into the final day at Walton Heath, and closed out the win by carding a level-par 72 to finish on nine under.

Victory means Pepperell, who also won the Qatar Masters in February, will break into the world's top 35 for the first time.

"I am over the moon," Pepperell told Sky Sports.

"It was such a tough day with the conditions. I didn't swing well from the get-go. It was an absolute grind."

Pepperell finished two shots ahead of playing partner Alexander Bjork of Sweden, who carded a one-under-par 71 to finish.
