Meronk Shares that Being Snubbed from Ryder Cup Likely Motivated him to join LIV

Adrian Meronk expressed his disappointment at not receiving a captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup last year, which played a significant role in his decision to sign with the Saudi-backed LIV Golf circuit. Despite ranking ahead of Nicolai Højgaard in various metrics, including Europe’s Ryder Cup points list and the Official World Golf Ranking, Meronk was not chosen for the team.

He described his emotions at hearing the news as shock, sadness and anger. He confirmed that he thought he had done enough to earn a spot on the team. Now, Meronk is two events into his LIV career as a member of the Cleeks. His debut was lackluster with a 47th place finish out of 54 players at the season opener. Despite this, he remains hopeful about his future and still aspires to play in the Ryder Cup.

Meronk stated that signing with LIV allowed him to focus more on himself and less on other people’s opinions. He believes that this has been beneficial for his game and mindset. As an independent contractor, he can choose when and where he plays without being bound by regulations or restrictions imposed by traditional golf organizations. This freedom has given him the opportunity to play in more tournaments and gain more exposure for his talents.
