The Wrocław-based golfer went pro in October. He made his début in a new role in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship organised as part of the European Tour series. Despite being a beginner, he finished second in the team ranking and became the first Polish golfer in history to take part in the major European golf championship series.
Wrocław should be proud of the golfer. Until recently, it was beyond wildest dream for any Polish golfer to make two million USD a year. Adrian Meronk is now gradually joining the world's best competitors.
Adriana Meronk began his career in sports almost 20 years ago. He continues the passion of his father, who has always loved golf. The Meronk family lived in Germany at the time. The boy began playing on his own after several years of assisting his father. It turned out that he was more talented that any of his peers. He soon started to outsmart his father's competitors. The passionate boy began to make subsequent steps in his golfing career.
Adrian Meronk returned to Poland in the 1990s. There were few golf courses in Poland at the time. But he managed to spread his passion to his family all the same. With each new success, the golfer attracted more and more publicity in Europe and elsewhere in the world. In his last amateur appearance, Andrzej Meronk led the Polish national team Poland to their historical best as they finished eighth in this September's World Golf Championships in Mexico. The golfer finished third, which was the best result from all the European contestants in the tournament.
This year has been a real watershed for Andrzej Meronk. He managed to prove his worth in the first professional tournament, The Wrocław-based golfer played three good rounds in Mauritius Golf Masters. He was one of the leaders right from the outset. Eventually he finished joint seventh with Irish international Damien McGran and French international Victor Riu.
