Adrian Meronk produced a clutch performance worthy of his idols Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy when he closed with a six-under 66 to claim a resounding three-shot victory in the Horizon Irish Open at Mount Juliet.

In a week marked by the annual lament over the date and the lack of top-50 players in the field – just five this year – six foot six inch Meronk emerged as a potential new European giant as he became the first Pole to win on the DP World Tour.
