Pepperell retains three-shot lead at British Masters

Pepperell retains three-shot lead at British Masters

Julien Guerrier is also on the same score, though the Frenchman had only completed 15 holes by the time play was suspended due to darkness.

Wallace has three of those wins and is playing in his 50th European Tour event this week, while Fleetwood is the reigning Race to Dubai champion and successfully defended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA title at the start of the year.

Did you see co-leader Eddie's Pepperell's awesome hole-in-one during the first round of the European Tour's British Masters?

Fleetwood and Pepperell were part of a four-way tie for the lead after opening rounds of 67, but while the former slumped to a birdie-free 77 to fall eight shots off the pace, Pepperell's 69 gave him a halfway total of eight under and a three-shot lead over compatriot Matt Wallace.

He dropped a shot on the 16th but hit an excellent tee-shot into the par three next before three-putting the first.

"You have to play well here every day or at least get a round like today.it's what could end up winning me this golf tournament", Thomas said.

"I just had a nightmare on the greens really". I'm going to use that'. 'I guess people have different thresholds when it comes to mental fatigue and I'm sure I'll feel exhausted eventually, ' Fleetwood said.

A victory would take Pepperell into the world's top 35 and nearly certainly secure a Masters debut in 2019. "I didn't see any shots that frightened me and it's about time I kicked on and won another event". "It looked like it pitched in the hole, jumped up and looked like it was going long because of the height it came out and obviously went in".

British Open champion Molinari, who leads Fleetwood at the top of the Race to Dubai points list, has been suffering from a back injury since he compiled a ideal 5-0 record in Europe's Ryder Cup triumph last month. "But I'm confident that I can go out there tomorrow and shoot three, four under par and make everyone else's life very hard".

And World No 2 and tournament host Justin Rose also failed to make much of an impact, a 723 leaving him mired on two over, 10 shots back.
