On the eve of the Irish Open, Pole Adrian Meronk spoke to the press for the first time to react to his non-selection in the Ryder Cup. After tweeting with great dignity to encourage the European team to win in Rome, Adrian Meronk detailed the feelings that overwhelmed him when he learned from Luke Donald that he was not part of the wild six -cards of the English captain, as he won this year at the Italian Open and in two other tournaments of the DP World Tour.

Adrian Meronk, statements

“To be honest, it has been an emotional time for me. I went from shock to sadness after also feeling anger. Now I'm trying to turn it into motivation for this week... Obviously, it's a hard time to swallow.

I thought I did enough to make this team but it is what it is... I wish them good luck and I'm just going to focus on my game and move forward. » He (Luke Donald) told me it was difficult for him too, but I stopped listening to him when he told me I wasn't going to Rome.
Many voices were raised to speak of injustice concerning his non-selection.

Meronk didn't go that far but he still explained how touched and disappointed he was. “Luke Donald told me it was hard for him too but to be honest when he said, 'You're not going to Rome,' I kind of stopped listening to what he said next ...

» I've been thinking a lot about the Ryder Cup over the past year and a half.
The Pole, who ticked a lot of boxes to hope for a wild card but who narrowly missed qualifying on points, still has a lot on his heart...

“On Monday, the first half of my day was just sadness and disbelief, then came anger because the last season and a half I spent a lot of time thinking about the Ryder Cup, what I had to do to integrating the team… That was my goal. Suddenly I realized that was not going to happen. Not this time.«
