EDDIE Pepperell picked up another big prize as he finished joint 34th in the Nedbank Challenge after a final round of 73 at Sun City, South Africa.

The Frilford Heath golfer ended on a two-over-par total of 290 for the tournament, 13 shots behind home player Branden Grace.

Pepperell, who had secured seven top-ten finishes in his previous eight events, collected just under €50,000 in prize money.

The 26-year-old looked like moving into contention in his third round on Saturday.

He was five under par for the first eight holes – and at one under par was only five off the lead.

But two bogeys on the back nine saw him finish with a three-under 69 and finish back in the pack.

He was unable to build on this today, but still collected another substantial cheque.
