EDDIE Pepperell shot six birdies in the second round of the DP Dubai World Championship, but still only recorded a two-under-par score of 70.

The Abingdon golfer's round was also littered with four bogeys, which ruined his chances of moving significantly up the field following his disappointing opening 75.

The Frilford Heath's tour professional's' two-round total of 145 leaves him in the lower reaches of the field in the final tournament of the European Tour.
