Eddie Pepperell didn’t give himself much of a chance to win the 2018 British Open after Saturday’s third round at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland.
The Englishman, who entered Sunday’s final round eight strokes behind the three-way tie atop the leaderboard, admitted he came to the course “a little hungover.”
Here’s his complete quote, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
Pepperell shot a four-under-par final round to move up to five-under-par for the tournament, and based on the struggles that leaders have had throughout Sunday, it’s possible he might have to go back on the course for a playoff.
Hopefully he stays ready, just in case.
