Adrian Meronk Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Mon 05 Dec 2022 | Comments


POLAND'S Adrian Meronk shot a closing 66 to beat home favourite Adam Scott to the Australian Open title by five shots.

Meronk became the first Pole to win on the European Tour at July's Irish Open and added a second title in Melbourne.

The 29-year-old left former Masters champion Scott trailing at Victoria with his superb four-under final round.

Meronk, a contender for Europe's Ryder Cup team next year, enjoyed a much more dominant victory and sealed his triumph with a 40ft eagle putt on the 18th.

He said: "To finish like that on the 18th hole, it's unreal. Adam was always my role model growing up. Beating him in the final group in front of big crowds in Australia is just quite an unbelievable experience."

Former world number one Scott had a one-shot overnight lead but he unravelled late in the final round to shoot a 72 and miss out on reclaiming a trophy he first won in 2009.

Player Profile

Meronk was born in Hamburg in May 1993 but grew up in Poland. He turned professional in 2016, played on the Challenge Tour in 2017 and was runner-up in the Ras Al Khaimah Challenge. In 2019 he won the Challenge Tour’s Open de Portugal and finished in a tie for third at the D+D Real Czech Challenge. 

He became the first Polish golfer to qualify for the DP World Tour and his victory at the Irish Open in 2022 meant he became the first Pole to win on tour.

He enjoyed a hugely consistent season in 2021-22, finishing third at the Dutch Open, tied third at the Catalunya Championship and sixth at the Soul Open. His finish at the Dutch Open meant he qualified for the 150th Open at St Andrews.

He began the week at the Australian Open in 56th place in the world rankings and 47th on the DP World Tour rankings.

He averages 310.98 yards from the tee (five yards further than in 2021), finding just 53.48% of fairways. He hits 67.36 of greens in regulation and averages 28.52 putts per round.
