Eddie Pepperell

Edward Pepperell is an English professional golfer born on 22 January 1991, who plays on the European Tour. In February 2018, he won his first European Tour event at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. In October 2018, he won his second European Tour event at the Sky Sports British Masters.

Pepperell turned professional in 2011 but failed to earn a place on either the European or Challenge Tours, and he began 2012 playing on the mini-tours. However he received an invitation to the Allianz Open Côtes d'Armor Bretagne in May, the fourth event on the Challenge Tour schedule. He went on to win the event in a sudden-death playoff over Jeppe Huldahl and as a result secured his membership on the Challenge Tour.

On 14 October 2018, Pepperell shot 72 to go wire-to-wire and hold off the challenge of Alexander Björk and win his second European Tour title of the season at the Sky Sports British Masters at Walton Heath Golf Club.[6] With the victory, Pepperell moved to a career best 33rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Pepperell finished runner-up at the Hero Open in July 2022, one shot behind Sean Crocker. It was his first top-5 finish since 2019.

Pepperell had a prominent amateur career, including finishing runner-up in the Boys Amateur Championship in 2009.
