EDDIE Pepperell will tee off alongside the colourful Miguel Angel Jimenez in the Italian Open today.

The Abingdon golfer, who picked up €31,000 at last weekend’s BMW PGA Championships at Wentworth, will be bidding for another profitable time when he plays in the European Tour event in Brescia.

Pepperell will hit his first shot at 7am GMT today alongside the popular cigar-smoking Spaniard Jimenez.

Adrian Otaegui completes their group.
