EDDIE Pepperell will attempt to get his 2018 season up and running when he takes part in the inaugural NBO Oman Open.

The golfer from Abingdon has yet to reach the final round in his three events on the European Tour this year.

He showed signs of improving form in Malaysia a fortnight ago with back-to-back rounds of 69, before carding an 80 in the third round to miss out.

But the set-up at Al Mouj is to the 27-year-old’s liking, with Pepperell tweeting: “It’s one of the best courses we’ll play all year.”

He tees off at 7.55am (GMT) tomorrow alongside fellow Englishman Chris Hanson and South Korea’s Jinho Choi.
