English golfer Eddie Pepperell has announced that he has signed a long term, exclusive representation contract with 4SPORTS and ENTERTAINMENT, the leading Swiss sports management agency.
Pepperell, pictured by Tom Ward Photography, from Abingdon in Oxfordshire, has today turned to the professional ranks of the game and looks set to have an exciting future ahead of him following an excellent career as an amateur. The 20-year-old has already represented his country on numerous occasions and also has a number of amateur titles to his name.
At just 12 years old Eddie showed his promise as a golfer by winning the English U12 Championships (Wee Wonders). Two years later he won the U15 Faldo Series ā€“ a title he would successfully defend the following year in 2006. In that same year, Eddie became an England Team squad member for the Boys Home Internationals and made his full England debut in the 2008 Home Internationals at Muirfield. He has represented England Boys a number of times including three successive selections for the European Boys team from 2007-2009. In 2009 Eddie finished runner-up in the British Boys Championship at Royal St. Georges and gained another England cap in the international match versus Spain at La Reserva. Eddie had previously come to national prominence when he won the Reid Trophy in 2005 and also had runner-up finishes in the McGregor and McEvoy Trophies (U16 and U18 National Championships respectively).
In May 2010 he enjoyed his biggest victory to date in winning the Welsh Open Amateur Championship and capped a superb year with his selection for the Eisenhower Trophy. He has since started 2011 in superb style, winning the Portuguese Amateur Championship by one shot.
Pepperell will play his first events as a pro on the Challenge Tour, starting at the Mugello Tuscany Open next week. He will then head to the city of Klagenfurt in Austria to play the Karnten Golf Open presented by the Markus Brier Foundation.
On signing with 4SPORTS, Eddie commented ā€œIā€™m really pleased to be signing with 4sports. Turning pro is a big step for me and whilst I feel 100% ready, it is great to know that I will have the experience of the team at 4sports supporting and advising me as my career develops.ā€
