Donald is set to announce his six captain's picks on Monday from 2pm UK time.
Meronk narrowly missed out on earning an automatic spot in the European Ryder Cup team in the final round of the Omega European Masters on Sunday.
Scotland's Bob MacIntyre took the final automatic spot in the team via the European Points List, with Germany's Yannik Paul and Poland's Meronk falling short in fourth and fifth positions.
Matt Fitzpatrick played his way into the team via the World Points List.
While many had already ruled out Paul for a pick, the same could not be said for Meronk, especially after he won the Italian Open on the Ryder Cup venue itself at Marco Simone earlier this season.
"It would be one of the crimes of the century if he doesn't make it," Sky Sports Golf's Mark Roe said as Meronk finished T13 in the European Masters this afternoon.
Since that victory at the Italian Open, Meronk has added a T5 at the KLM Open and a T3 at the BMW International Open.
Taking a look at the stats and Meronk ranks first in strokes-gained off the tee on the DP World Tour, as well as second in strokes-gained total and fifth in stroke average.
Meronk did, however, miss the cut at the US Open and Scottish Open before finishing T23 at The Open.
But despite missing out on an automatic spot in the team, many considered Meronk would still receive one of Donald's six picks in the side on Monday.
Meronk was bidding to become the first Pole to ever compete at the Ryder Cup.
FROM A VERY GOOD SOURCE, I RECEIVED THE INFORMATION THAT @adrianmeronk WAS NOT SELECTED BY @lukedonald . THE PLAYER ALREADY KNOWS. SCANDALOUS AND A SHAME ON @rydercupeurope WHAT @lukedonald HAS DONE WITH @adrianmeronk . MANY PEOPLE CLOSE TO @rydercupeurope LEAKED THAT MERONK WAS…— HANDICAP 54 (@handicap_54) September 3, 2023
While Donald's six picks will be made official on Monday afternoon, Matías Miguel Torge, who runs the popular Twitter account Handicap 54 that has already nailed a number of stories and player transfers on LIV Golf, has tweeted tonight that Meronk will not be getting a pick from Donald.
Handicap 54 tweeted "from a very good source" that Meronk has already received a call with the bad news from the captain.
Here's the tweet from Handicap 54:
If Meronk is indeed out of the running for a pick, then it would appear to open the door for Nicolai Hojgaard to take it instead.
Many consider Ludvig Aberg will receive one of Donald's six picks following his maiden win on the DP World Tour today.
Donald wil reveal all from 2pm on Monday, and you catch the picks on Sky Sports Golf.
