It was three each of birdies and bogeys in the third round, while four birdies and just a couple of bogeys ensured he finished two-under par on the final day, and tied for 42nd overall.

The tournament was won by Japan’s Rikuya Hoshino, who was 14-under par, and a shot ahead of French golfer Ugo Coussaud.

Frilford Heath member Pepperell is next in action from February 22, at the Kenya Open in Nairobi.
