Eddie Pepperell – Biography

Eddie Pepperell from Oxfordshire in England, looks set to have an exciting future ahead of him following an excellent career as an amateur.  The 22 year old, who turned pro in May 2011, has represented his country on numerous occasions and  has a number of amateur titles to his name.

At the age of 12, Eddie was already making a name for himself within English golf, winning the English U12 Championships (Wee Wonders). Two years later he won the U15 Faldo Series – a title he would successfully defend in 2006.  That same year, Eddie became an England Team squad member for the Boys Home Internationals and made his full England debut in the 2008 Home Internationals at Muirfield.  He has represented England Boys a number of times including three successive selections for the European Boys team from 2007-2009.

In 2009 Eddie finished runner-up in the British Boys Championship at Royal St. Georges and gained another England cap in the international match versus Spain at La Reserva. In May 2010 he enjoyed his biggest amateur victory in winning the Welsh Open Amateur Championship and capped a fantastic year with his selection for the Eisenhower Trophy.

Eddie started 2011 in superb style, winning the Portuguese Amateur Championship by one shot.  After turning pro in May 2011 he made a smooth transition, finishing 4th at the Open International de Normandie on the Alps Tour as well as the 1st qualifying stage of European Tour School.   He also came 14th at the Allianz Open de Toulouse on the Challenge Tour.

2012 was a break through year for Eddie.  After a great start with 3 top 5 finishes on the satellite tours, he won his maiden event as a professional – the Allianz Open Cotes d’Armor on the Challenge Tour – which secured his card for the remainder of  2012.  His great form continued towards the end of the year with three top 10 finishes that saw him end the season ranked 13th on the Order of Merit, gaining him a full European Tour card for 2013.  Full of confidence he has made an impressive start to the 2013 European Tour season by finishing 30th at the Alfred Dunhill Championship after a final round 68. Only a few months later he finished 8th at the Open de Espana, and 6th at the European Tour’s flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship. Immediately following this, he comfortably qualified into the second major of they year, the US Open at Merion.

Off the course it is clear to see that Eddie has a maturity way beyond his years and has the natural communication skills to host golf days and coaching clinics, making him an excellent prospect for the corporate world of sponsorship.
