Adrian Meronk claimed his second DP World Tour victory at the ISPS HANDA Australian Open on Sunday, as he held a sensational eagle putt on the final hole of the tournament to ultimately win by five shots.
Starting the final day one shot behind Adam Scott, there was a two-shot swing on the opening hotel on Sunday, as Scott dropped a shot and Adrian made birdie, which he ultimately never looked back on and ended up signing for a final round of 4 under, 66.
He picked up another birdie as he made the turn and although he made bogey at the 13th, he recovered on the 15th hole.
Adrian had a three shot cushion heading up the 18th fairway and he held an incredible putt for eagle on the last to ignite celebrations and become the Australian Open winner and join an illustrious list of winners.
“I’m super excited and to finish like that on the 18th hole, it’s just unreal,” said Adrian. “I’m so grateful, thank you for all the support and I enjoyed this week so much.”
“I just look how old this trophy is, it’s just incredible. So I‘m very proud and excited to be joining that company,” 29-year-old Meronk said.
On Thursday, Adrian was four over par after his first 16 holes, but battled back like a champion to shoot rounds of 66-63-66 to storm up to the top of the leaderboard and take the title.
Already the first Polish golfer to win multiple DP World Tour titles, Meronk has now risen to 52nd in the Official World Golf Rankings and 2nd on the Race to Dubai rankings.
Well done on this great victory, Adrian. We are all so pleased for you!
