EDDIE Pepperell completed an excellent BMW PGA Championships with a three-under par final round at Wentworth.

The 69 got the Abingdon golfer to 12-under for the tournament.

It moved him into a provisional share of fourth place at the European Tour's flagship event, but had to settle for sixth place after being leapfrogged by Ian Poulter and Patrick Reed.

While missing out on what would have been a first top-five finish since July 2019, it was nonetheless a fine way to follow up last weekend's top-ten finish in Scotland.

Beginning the day on nine-under after rounds of 67, 70 and 70, Pepperell claimed a birdie at the par-five fourth hole - as he had done on the previous three days.

The rest of the front nine was played in level par, but he made a move after the turn.

Shots were picked up at the tenth, 13th and 14th, before a bogey at the 15th halted his charge.

He finished seven shots behind winner Tyrell Hatton.
