A fine finish from Eddie Pepperell saw him shoot a level-par 72 in the third round at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship this morning.

The Abingdon golfer, who started on six under, got off to a nightmare start with a double-bogey at the opening hole.

Although he birdied the second, a bogey at the third, followed by five pars and another dropped shot at the ninth saw him drop well down the field.

However, three birdies on the back nine, including two in the final four holes, saw Pepperell recover to shoot a 72.
