EDDIE Pepperell is relishing a return to one of his favourite events of the year today.

The 28-year-old golfer, from Abingdon, is part of a star-studded field for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

A share of sixth place in 2013 helped launch Pepperell’s career and having such a big tournament effectively on his doorstep makes it a highlight.

He said: “This is the biggest event on tour and it’s an hour away from home, so to be an English player at that event is special.

“If I had to choose four events I could play for the rest of my life it would be the PGA at Wentworth, the Open, the Masters and the Players’ Championship.

“They are the stand-out events I have played in.

“The field is great and I’ve just got the feeling it will be the best at the PGA ever.”

Pepperell is in a group with Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Wallace which gets under way at 9.05am.
