The best tweeter in golf recently took a pronounced break from competitive play, remaining sidelined for seven weeks to rest a back injury.

That news in itself would be cause for concern, except for the fact that he returned to a fourth-place finish at the Irish Open on July 7.

Last year’s T-6 at Carnoustie was Pepperell’s first top-10 at a major and proved he can hang with the big boys. Should that back injury be fully healed while playing a third straight week, expect some solid scores once again.
