EDDIE Pepperell finished in a share of 16th place at the RBC Heritage tournament in South Carolina.

The Abingdon golfer carded a one-under-par 70 in the final round at the Harbour Town Links course for a six-under-par tournament.

It saw Pepperell, ranked 39th in the world, take home $90,620 in prize money.

The 28-year-old headed into the final day off the back of rounds of 71, 69 and 68.

Pepperell made a positive start on Sunday with a birdie at the par-five second, but he went on to drop two shots in five holes.

After falling short of the green at the par-three fourth, he missed a four-foot putt for par, before a wayward tee shot on the par-four eighth - the hardest hole on the course - proved costly.

But the Frilford Heath member recovered well and an 18-foot putt at the ninth saw him reach the turn level par.

Despite a bogey at the tenth after he found water off the tee, Pepperell enjoyed a strong finish.

He holed six-footers to pick up shots at the 15th and 17th to move up the leaderboard.

Pepperell finished six behind winner Pan Cheng-tsung.
