Eddie Pepperell says he was hungover at Open Championship

One time clubhouse leader Eddie Pepperrell has admitted that he was "a little hungover" during his final round 67 at The Open in Carnoustie.

World number 72 Pepperell is an irreverent tweeter, and he took to the social media site to criticise Phil Mickelson after the American deliberately hit a moving ball to stop it from rolling off a green during the U.S. Open last month.

Pepperell shot a 4-under 67 on his final round, surging to close to the top of the leaderboard.

"I was a little hungover, I won't lie", he told reporters after his final round. I was so frustrated yesterday that today.

'I managed my game exceptionally well today. "It's a amusing game".

Pepperell was quick to voice his opinion on the controversial incident involving Mickelson at the US Open, but he revealed he resisted the urge to discuss the fallout with the five-time major champion.

Eddie Pepperell is never afraid to speak his mind in a post-round interview.

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".

'I just had some wine with my coach.

He said: 'I wouldn't always have a drink the night before, sometimes I have a few. Other days, you play hungover and have a dream round. And then playing with Phil, those two things gave me something to go out there with, honestly.

"I didn't get to ask him about that", he added.

"Listen, I love Phil".

Pepperell clarified that he felt okay this morning, but woke up in the middle of the night feeling poorly. "Apparently, I'll have to hang around", Pepperell deadpanned after his round, which contained five birdies and just a single bogey.
