Eight days before LIV Golf’s 2024 season opener and about eight hours after he withdrew from the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open, Adrian Meronk is leaving the PGA Tour for the rival circuit.
According to a report by The Times of London, Meronk, considered the biggest snub from the 2023 European Ryder Cup team, will join LIV Golf in time for the first event of the year in Mexico on Feb. 2-4. He finished second at the Hero Desert Dubai Classic last week. Meronk will reportedly join the Cleeks, captained by Martin Kaymer.
The Times report also states that LIV Golf is continuing its pursuit of England’s Tyrrell Hatton, who earlier Wednesday was announced among the latest commitments to the 2024 WM Phoenix Open. That tournament is set for Super Bowl weekend, as is LIV Golf’s second event of 2024 in Las Vegas from Feb. 7-11.
Meronk is ranked 56th in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings. Hatton is ninth. Only No. 5 Jon Rahm is more highly ranked among those on LIV Golf.
