Adrian Meronk's coach has confirmed he has split with the LIV Golf pro after 14 years. 

Matthew Tipper took to the platform X to confirm the 6ft 6ins Polish golfer has decided 'to go a new way'. 

Meronk joined LIV for a reported £10,000,00 ($12,500,000) fee for the 2024 campaign and so far results have been mixed. 

He has cracked the top-10 on two occasions after seven events played as a member of Martin Kaymer's Cleeks. 


Tipper wrote on X: "After 14 years sometimes things just come to an end. 

"Last week Adrian decided he wanted to go a new way and I have to respect that decision. 

"I'm proud of everything we achieved together. 

"I knew in 2010 he was a great talent and he has only gone to prove that all over the world. 

"To Pietro Gobinho and Stuart Beck, thank you for being amazing caddies when Adrian needed you.

"Your support and co-operation has been invaluable and I thank you both."

He added: "I want to publicly thank Adrian for allowing me to sit in the best seat in the house for 14 years. 

"It's now time to start my new chapter in the USA alongside my mentor James Sieckmann and I'm excited to go to my first Korn Ferry Tour event last next month.

"As always tomorrow we begin again."

Meronk was expected to be playing the 2023-2024 season as PGA Tour rookie having earned his playing rights with the circuit last year through his glittering performances on the DP World Tour. 

Meronk's victories at the Australian Open and Italian Open saw him as almost a dead cert to be involved in the 2023 Ryder Cup team for Europe. 

His victory at the Italian Open also came at the course where the 2023 contest was staged. 

But European skipper Luke Donald decided not to include Meronk, instead placing his faith in the untested Swedish phenom Ludvig Aberg.



At the time, Meronk said he was 'shocked' and 'angry' with the omission. 

The 'snub' factored heavily into Meronk's decision to join the breakaway in February. 

“Ï don’t know, but I would probably not have come to LIV if I had played in the Ryder Cup," Meronk previously told Telegraph Sport. 

"What happened definitely made my choice easier. 
"You know, what I went through just made it easier to care more about myself and not care what other people think of me, or what other people want me to do.
‌“What happened with the Ryder Cup just opened my eyes as to how everything works. 
"Yeah, and that in life, especially when you are a professional athlete, it is not your whole life. 
"You just have to make sure that your family is good and that you are good and feeling good."
Meronk finished T-26 last week in Adelaide

LIV's next event will take place in Singapore at Sentosa Golf Club over 3-5 May.
