EDDIE Pepperell returns to action in South Africa today.

The Abingdon golfer is in the field at the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopeard Creek CC, Malelane.

He was due to tee off at 5.20am, with fellow Englishman Oliver Wilson and South African Branden Grace.

The trio's second round is set to begin at 10.20am tomorrow.

It is Pepperell's first tournament since he was disqualified from the Turkish Open for running out of balls.
