Adrian Meronk fully focused on going low as his fine form continues

Halfway co-leader Adrian Meronk insists he is only thinking about going as low as possible every week after a flawless 65 on day two of the 2023 Ras Al Khaimah Championship continued his recent fine form.

The Polish star has made a fantastic start to the 2023 campaign, winning his second DP World Tour title at the ISPS HANDA Australian Open in December before recording a top-ten finish at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship a fortnight ago.

He also holed the winning putt as Continental Europe beat Great Britain & Ireland 14.5-10.5 to win the inaugural Hero Cup in between, and the 29-year-old has kept the momentum going so far this week.

Starting from the tenth tee on Friday, Meronk reeled off four successive birdies from the 11th before making three more after the turn to share the lead at the halfway stage.

Meronk is pleased with his good start to the season but revealed he is fully focused on his game and posting low scores.

He said: "Last year I started well and had a great year, you always want to get the season off to a nice start.

"I'm just focusing on my game, trying to go as low as possible every week.

"It's a good position going into the weekend so we'll see what happens."

Reflecting on his day's work, which included a magnificent recovery shot from a bush at the fifth, Meronk added: "A lot of solid shots, great putts. 

"It was quite calm in the morning so you could aim at the pins and go quite aggressive, which I did. 

"I was down wind (on the fifth) so went for it and pulled the drive a bit, hit the cart path. I thought it was in the water but the ball stayed in the bush. 

"I was just trying to smash it out, and the ball went through the bunker to 20 feet. Unfortunately I missed the putt but it was the shot of the day."
