EDDIE Pepperell’s good form continued as he tied for eighth at the D+D Real Czech Masters.

The Abingdon golfer ended on 11-under par, five shots behind winner Maximilian Kieffer, after the event at the Albatross Golf Resort was cut to 54 holes following heavy rain on day three.

Pepperell has now secured four top-20 finishes in a row and climbs to 300 in the world rankings.

The Frilford Heath member set the tone for a strong weekend with three birdies in his opening four holes in Prague.

Two more at the tenth and 12th were sandwiched by bogeys at the ninth and 15th holes as he shot a three-under par 69 on day one.

It was a similar story in Pepperell’s second round as he started from the tenth and birdied two of his first three holes.

A near-flawless round was only spoilt by a bogey at the par-four second, but the 31-year-old picked up shots at the 18th, first and fourth to card four-under on day two and easily make the cut.

The rain fell overnight on Friday and continued into Saturday morning to leave areas of the course unplayable, with organisers deciding at lunchtime to make it a 54-hole tournament.

The disruption did not affect Pepperell as he returned for the final day and charged up the leaderboard with birdies at the first, second and fourth holes.

His momentum stalled slightly with a string of pars and a bogey at the 14th, but birdies at the 16th and 18th saw him finish with a flourish.
