GOLF: Pepperell's joint leader in Sweden

9:00am Friday 30th May 2014

Abingdon's Eddie Pepperell is joint leader after the first day of action in Malmo, Sweden.

The Frilford Heath member, who last week finished tied 21st in the prestigious BMW PGA Championships at Wentworth returned a six-under-par round of 66.

He shares the lead with Swedish player Jens Dantorp.

Pepperell shot seven birdies, including three in the last four holes.

It is the second time in three tournaments that the 23-year-old has been the leader after the first round.

He said: “I played well today and I hit the ball better, which is the main thing for me.

“I’ve not been hitting the ball that well over the last couple of weeks, despite some good results.”
