EDDIE Pepperell has the outright lead heading into the final day of the Betfred British Masters.

The Abingdon golfer birdied the 18th to move to ten-under at The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield, having carded four-under today.

He leads the six-man chasing pack, which includes Ryder Cup winner Eduardo Molinari, by one shot at a tournament he won in 2018.

Having been six-under overnight, the Frilford Heath member started promisingly with birdies at the third and fourth holes.

A bogey at the eighth was a setback, but an excellent back nine put him right in the hunt.

Pepperell picked up shots at the 12th and 14th to take the joint lead, with another birdie at the 18th putting him out on his own in front.

The world No 210 has two European Tour wins to his name.
