Eddie Pepperell produced a solid opening round in this year's Open Championship.

The Abingdon golfer shot a level-par 71 at Carnoustie this morning, with two birdies and two bogeys.

Pepperell got off to a poor start when he dropped a shot at the second.

But the Frilford Heath member hit back with a birdie at the fourth.

Nine pars followed before he picked up another shot at the par-five 14th to move to one-under.

But a bogey at the par-three 16th saw him slip back to level, before parring the final two holes.
