The Englishman, who entered his fourth day at Walton Heath Golf Club with a three-shot lead, signed for a scorecard consisting of three bogeys offset by a birdie and a hole-out eagle (on No. 10) en route to a four-day score of 9-under par, two clear of runner-up Alexander Bjork (71).

“It’s brilliant,” said Pepperell. “I said yesterday I wouldn’t know how it felt being in the lead at this event as opposed to another one but now that I’ve won it, it does feel special.

“The crowds are great, I’ve had some great local support around a beautiful golf course – one I’ve played a lot as a junior and an amateur – so to come and win this event is really special.

“It was such a tough day with the conditions. I didn’t swing it very well from the get-go and it was really hard then to find it. It was an absolute grind for four or five hours. It just shows how important it is to build a lead when things are going well for you.

“I’m delighted to go wire-to-wire, especially at this event, I’m over the moon.”
