A worthwhile escape from a DP World Tour competitor

NetherlandsAdrian Meronk finished third, received $118,460 and a ticket to the major thanks to holding par from the lake in the final round of the Dutch Open at Bernardus par72 on May 29.

In the 4th round, Meronk was at -8. He went through seven holes without bogey, scoring two birdies to -10. But on the par3 8 hole, the Polish golfer hit a water hazard before the green.

Seeing that the ball had not completely sunk, Meronk decided to continue from his current position instead of dropping in an easier place with a penalty stroke. The 29-year-old golfer rolled up his trouser leg, took off his shoe, and then released his hand after two clicks of the wedge tip. The ball escaped, far from the hole, but Meronk still put a par to keep.

Meronk’s escape from the lake.

Meronk finished at -12, after adding two birdies and also no bogey in the remaining 10 holes. The final mark is at -13, set by Ryan Fox. But this goal was caught by Victor Perez when he was two holes behind Fox. Both entered the playoffs with the victory belonging to Perez in stroke more than 12 meters at the fourth side hole.

Perez received $320,000, Fox received $207,000 in a $1,882 million bonus fund.

With the result of the Dutch Open, the 29-year-old Perez won the European first-class golf tournament for the second time in seven years as a professional. And Fox is 35 years old, 10 years at this level, but only two wins.

Meronk has been playing professionally since 2016, so far has not been able to win after 63 tournaments on the DP World Tour (the new name of the European Tour from 2022). But with the last third Dutch Open, Meronk will attend the major The Open for the first time, next July, and also be the first Polish player to win a place at the prestigious event organized by Royal & Ancient.
