Adrian Merank is one round away from becoming the first Polish winner on the DP World Tour, as he is one-stroke ahead after three rounds at the Horizon Irish Open.

The 29-year-old birdied three of the last four holes in the Mount Juliet estate on Saturday to sit 14 unders at the top of the leaderboard.

“I’m pretty excited,” Meronk admits. “So far I am happy with my score. Today he played very hard again. And, yes, I can’t wait for tomorrow.

“Honestly, the conditions were quite tough. Our first eight holes I would say were right – the rain was on and off. It was actually quite hard rain for three holes. So that was quite challenging. But you know, it’s exciting to be in a debate, to see all these people. “

Meronk was the first Polish player to win the European Challenge Tour at the 577 Open de Portugal in 2018, before becoming the first pole to graduate from the DP World Tour later that year. In 2021, he became the first player to fly the Polish flag at a major championship at the US Open in Tory Pine.

Merrink is one shot ahead of second-round leader Jorge Campillo. The Spaniard is currently in second place with 13-under par with England’s Jack Sr. and Paraguay’s Fabrizio Janotti.

2019 Open champion Shane Lori is currently leading the home charge, posting 4 under par 68 early Saturday and moving into the seven under. Offley Man, however, is seven shots away from the lead.
