British Masters Report

Eddie Pepperell was victorious on home soil at the Sky Sports British Masters, winning by two shots from Sweden’s Alexander Bjork on the Old Course at Walton Heath.

Pepperell already had a victory to his name in 2018 having won the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in February. He came into the final round at Walton Heath holding a three-shot lead.

The Englishman’s final round of level par was enough to secure the victory in tough conditions, where 9-under was the winning score for the week.

The three men who started the day in 2nd all fell away. Jordan Smith (+1), Julian Suri (+2) and Julien Guerrier (+6) all had bad days, with the Frenchman dropping out of the top 20 with his final round.

A 1-under last round on Sunday saw Alexander Bjork move into the runners-up spot, with Australian Lucas Herbert finished in T3 alongside Smith at 5-under, four shots back from the winner.

Five more Englishmen – in Sam Horsfield, Tom Lewis, Justin Rose, Andy Sullivan and Tommy Fleetwood – all finished in the top 10 on home soil.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
