ORLANDO, Fla. (March 17, 2016) – The latest Arnold Palmer Cup Rankings for the 2016 event were released on Thursday, and ETSU senior All-American Adrian Meronk (Wroclaw, Poland) moved to fifth. 

Meronk, who was ranked sixth in the first ranking list back on March 3, has posted five straight top-10 finishes, including runner-up honors at last weekend’s Seminole Intercollegiate. Following his strong showing in Tallahassee, Meronk earned Southern Conference Golfer of the Week honors on Wednesday, while also moving to No. 23 in the latest Golfstat rankings. 

Meronk recorded a win at the 2015 Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate, while he leads the team in scoring average (71.04). In addition, the Wroclaw, Poland native has posted seven rounds in the 60s and 15 rounds of par or better so far this season. 

Meronk made his Palmer Cup debut last year, while ETSU has been represented in the prestigious event 11 times. 

The top six golfers from the final ranking on April 15 from both the United States and Europe shall be among the 10 individuals selected to compete in the Arnold Palmer Cup at Formby Golf Club June 24-26.   

Using Golfstat’s NCAA Player Ranking as a base, the Arnold Palmer Cup Ranking awards bonus points for wins and high finishes and a negative bonus for poor finishes. The ranking also contains a strength of schedule component.  

The next Arnold Palmer Cup Ranking will be released March 31.
