EDDIE Pepperell will look to build on a strong showing in Sweden when the BMW International Open gets underway tomorrow.

The Frilford Heath member put two frustrating non-finishes behind him to claim 12th place at the Scandinavian Mixed in Stockholm.

Pepperell had withdrawn from the Porsche European Open after three rounds, while at the Dutch Open, he managed just the first two rounds.

The 32-year-old recovered well from those setbacks though, to finish 12th at the Scandinavian Mixed, largely due to a brilliant final round where he was seven-under par.

Pepperell ended the tournament 11-under par, his best return since October when he was fourth at the Portugal Masters, on 21-under par.
