EDDIE PEPPERELL | EUROPEAN TOUR

Eddie Pepperell says he’s never felt so ‘lost’ as he battles to keep his European Tour card for the 2017 season.


The Englishman has missed eight cuts in his last 11 events, earning just €48,934 in the process, and currently finds himself way down the Race to Dubai rankings in 109th place.
"I have never been so frustrated or lost" - Eddie Pepperell

Of course, only the top 110 keep their cards and, with only three tournaments left on his schedule – the first of which is the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship – he is facing a struggle to get things back on the right track.

“I have never been so frustrated or lost,” Eddie Pepperell told the Oxford Mail. “Two years ago I was probably playing worse than I am now, but I’m far more lost now – more than at any point in my career.

“I haven’t been sleeping well because I’ve been worrying about shots. But at the same time it’s golf and that’s how difficult it is.

“It’s not something I’m scared of – and it’s up to me to beat it. If I miss the next three cuts I’m going to Qualifying School. I know need a good result.”

Eddie Pepperell banked €785,709 last year as he finished 49th in the Race to Dubai and narrowly missed out on Irish Open glory - losing out to Soren Kjeldsen in a play-off. In a recent blog post, dated earlier this month, he spoke of how much has changed within such a short time.
"Last year, life for me was great" - Eddie Pepperell

“Last year, life for me was great,” he said. “I paid off my mortgage, ate out in Giraffe five times a week and never thought twice about the cost of petrol or business class flights.

“Although I didn’t think I was being lazy or unthoughtful at the time, compared to the way I was from 2010-2014, I probably was. And this year so far has been a struggle. If I viewed myself the way I’d look at the economy, I would soon realise that I’m in a recession! My job is to make sure it doesn’t become a depression.”
