Eddie Pepperell claimed his first European Tour win at the Qatar Masters – holding off fellow Mizuno iron player Oliver Fisher on the 18th. Both players recently signed to Mizuno – Pepperell playing JPX900 Tour irons and Fisher MP-18 SC.
Pepperell entered the final day level with Fisher at the top of the leaderboard and while he opened up a three-shot lead at the turn, an impressive fightback by Fisher meant the pair were separated by a just single stroke as they went up the par five last. Fisher has the advantage after two shots with Pepperell in the rough after both men laid-up but the 27 year old hit an excellent 9 iron to set up a par which his playing partner could only match. Pepperell was considering playing pw for his 3rd shot, but was calmly talked into 9 iron by his caddy.
Pepperell’s closing round of 70 got him to 18 under, with Fisher signing for a 71.
