SAN DIEGO, Calif. (June 18, 2021) – Former ETSU men’s golf standout Adrian Meronk had his major debut end on Friday afternoon after carding an 8-over-par (79) to miss the cut by five strokes at the 121st U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Calif.

Meronk made a splash in his PGA Tour debut with a birdie on his first hole in round one, chipping in from 11-yards out on the par-4 10th hole. The Poland native stumbled with a bogey on the par-4 12th hole, but clawed back to one-under-par with a birdie on hole No. 13. Meronk then dropped two strokes with back-to-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th hole, making the turn at 1-over-par. Meronk finished his opening round at the U.S. Open at 1-over-par (72), sitting in prime position to compete in the weekend.

Friday’s round started out well for the former Buccaneer, carding a front-nine score of 35 (E) with one bogey and one birdie. Sitting in a tie for 20th with nine holes to play, Torrey Pines got the best of the young professional. Meronk stumbled through an 8-over-par (44) back nine, resulting in a missed cut in his major debut on the PGA Tour.
