In fact, Pepperell shot a 67, the lowest score of the Open's final round, and his four-day total of 5 under par was actually enough to take the tournament lead into the clubhouse. He also had a little too much to drink last night.

Pepperell was playing with Phil Mickelson and he admitted that playing with the five-time major victor gave him "something to go out there with".

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". "I won't lie. I had too much to drink last night", said Pepperell.

England's Eddie Pepperell shot 67 in the final round of The Open with a hangover.

"I've managed my game exceptionally well today because I knew on certain tee shots I wasn't going to hit a great tee shot, so I played for the rough and I played for missing the bunkers". "I was so frustrated yesterday (after shooting 71) that today was really, I wouldn't say a write-off, but I didn't feel I was in the golf tournament".

Peperrell then addressed again his unusual final-round preparation, saying, "Listen, I wouldn't always have a drink the night before".

On his birdie putt at the last: "Desperately trying to hole it but desperately thinking, well, I could easily wipe this three foot past, and the last thing I want to do is leave myself a three-footer at Carnoustie in front of 10,000 people". Another birdie at the last meant he had taken one in all four rounds on what is arguably the toughest closing hole in the sport. Sometimes I have a few drinks. When I'm in the hunt, I enjoy it. Other days, you play hungover and have a dream round.
