Eddie Pepperell out to extend lead on final day of British Masters

Eddie Pepperell out to extend lead on final day of British Masters

"I had a good chance to make four birdies in a row but missed that and just gave away too many cheap bogeys", Rose - who had to cancel his pre-tournament media commitments on Wednesday due to illness - told Sky Sports.

"Last week I felt absolutely fine, honestly".

"I remember feeling really comfortable with the lead in Doha", he added.

Pepperell was ranked outside the world's top 500 as recently as May past year, but won his maiden European Tour title in Qatar in February and followed a runners-up finish in the Scottish Open with a tie for sixth in the Open seven days later, carding a closing 67 at Carnoustie despite being hungover.

Conservative MP Nadine Dorries said it may be time to "get Mrs May out of the way" in order to install Davis in Number 10 instead. She also denied the DUP's recent actions - including a threat to vote down the budget - represented the party "flexing muscle".


"Well I thought it pitched in the hole, shot up, looked like it was going to the back of the green from where we were stood and then all of a sudden it disappeared", he said.

A dropped shot at the next when he drove into a bunker curtailed his progress, but the 27-year-old birdied his ninth to move back to two under. "You know, it's about time I kicked on and won another event, I would say". "But I'm confident that I can go out there on Sunday and shoot three or four under par, and make everyone else's life very hard. And that's meant as a compliment as much as anything else because I want to enjoy it for what it is".

Fleetwood and Open champion Molinari were paired for all four sessions across Friday and Saturday at Le Golf National, returning a ideal 4-0 record to give rise to the "Moliwood" moniker. "I practised at home on Monday so I am still trying to tick over and work on things and get better". "This week I feel a bit more (tired) and next week I'll be having a week off".

Fellow Ryder Cup colleagues Francesco Molinari and Justin Rose sit on the right side of the projected cut line on two over, but Team Europe captain Thomas Bjorn - along with assistants Luke Donald and Lee Westwood - will not be playing at the weekend. There's probably people I would prefer to beat, but if it was me and Fran that it came down to, either way I'm going to be more than happy, whichever way that would turn out.
