OXFORDSHIRE’S Eddie Pepperell made a disappointing start to the Tshwane Open in Centurion, South Africa today.

The Abingdon golfer carded a two-over-par opening round of 74, featuring four bogeys and two birdies, to leave him in joint 122nd place.

Play was suspended at 5.29pm local time after a rainstorm, leaving many of the field to complete their first round tomorrow morning.
