Adrian Meronk has the right to be the most disappointed after it was decided who from the European and US golf scene will play in the Ryder Cup. The Pole was not on Luke Donald‘s list, and a few days ago he expressed his disappointment, considering that he thought he would certainly be part of the team.
After all, Meronk received tremendous support from friends, family, and everyone else. However, this great golfer can be especially happy because of the support from Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irish consider Meronk to be unfortunate.
Many things did not go in his favor in the last few months.“We all know that he’s heartbroken and he had as much of a case as anyone to be on that team,” McIlroy said, as quoted by skysports.com! “Any other year he would have made the team, there were just a few unfortunate circumstances that went against him.
I think Jon [Rahm] and I qualifying on the European Points list instead of the World Points list, having Ludvig [Aberg] come and play the way he played, the way it all transpired he was very, very unfortunate. But he went out there today, shot a decent score and that’s all he can do, use this as fuel for the fire to go ahead and keep playing great and hopefully make the next one in the States.”
Shane Lowry on Luke Donald’s picks
Shane Lowry is one of the golfers who also commented on Luke Donald’s picks.
He believes that he should respect the captain’s decision and accept things as they are.“I’m not going to sit here and disagree with Luke Donald. It was his decision at the end of the day, if he thinks that somebody else is better for this team.
If you look at the way the team was picked, there’s not many players playing that weren’t in the top 12, myself included. And that’s why you have six picks, so you have the chance to pick the 12 best players.”
