EDDIE Pepperell will hope he feels the benefits of a short break when he tees off at the ISPS Handa Championship this afternoon.

The Abingdon golfer is due to start his opening round in Tarragona at 2.40pm BST alongside countrymen Jack Singh Brar and Andrew Wilson.

Pepperell has not played since he missed the cut at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at the end of March.

The Frilford Heath member is four tournaments into his 2022 campaign and is yet to make the weekend.

Pepperell has fallen to No 527 in the world since he last played.
