EDDIE Pepperell will be attempting to make his first European Tour halfway cut of the year in the Maybank Championship at the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

The 27-year-old, from Abingdon, failed to make it beyond two rounds in both the Abu Dhabi Championship and the Dubai Desert Classic over the past fortnight.

He tees off tomorrow at 5.20am (BST) in the company of Australian Andrew Dodt and Angelo Que, from the Philippines, hoping for a change of fortune.
