“I want to become Lewandowski in the golf world.”
The Korean Championship (total prize money of 2 million dollars), co-hosted by Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA) 바카라사이트and DP World Tour, opened on the 27th at Jack Nicklaus GC (par 72) in Songdo, Incheon. Among the players practicing at the driving range after the first round, there is a player who stands tall. 198 cm tall Adrian Meronk (Poland). When asked what kind of player he wants to be, he answered:
Meronk, who has won 2 wins on the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour), has Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona), a world-class striker in soccer, as his role model. He said of Lewandowski, “As a fellow Pole, I admire his achievements” and “It is my dream to become the Lewandowski of the golf world.” “I’ve met him a few times, and we know each other,” he said. “I heard he plays golf very well. He wants to play golf together someday.”
The modifier ‘first’ is often followed in front of meronk. He is the first Polish player in the history of the DP World Tour, which was launched in 1972. He is also the first Polish national to compete in three major tournaments (US Open, The Open and Masters). In July of last year, he won the Horizon Irish Open and even became the first Polish DP World Tour winner. Participating in this competition after participating in the Masters, which he dreamed of last week, he said, “It was my first visit to Korea, and I ate Korean barbecue as soon as I arrived.”
On this day, Meronk was tied to the same group as Wang Jeong-hoon, who had three wins on the DP World Tour, and Kim Young-soo, who won the Grand Prize on the KPGA Tour last year. He shot an even par 72 with 3 birdies and 3 bogeys. Tomorrow, I want to compete properly with them.” At the same time, he emphasized, “I want to catch as many birdies as possible in the second round and raise my name to the top of the leaderboard.” Wang Jeong-hoon and Kim Young-soo recorded 2 under par side by side.
