Adrian Meronk finished with an eagle to win the ISPS HANDA Australian Open in style on Sunday.

The Pole closed out his tournament with a sensational long-range eagle putt to finish 14-under-par for the tournament – five shots ahead of overnight leader Adam Scott.

Meronk was cool, calm and collected amid the windy conditions in Melbourne, picking up four birdies en route to carding a four-under 66.

Despite taking the lead into Sunday, Scott was ultimately unable to repel Meronk’s challenge, sitting on even in the late stages until a double bogey on the 17th cruelled any hopes of eking out a victory on home soil.

Scott’s compatriot Min Woo Lee finished third on eight under, while Ireland’s Conor Purcell topped the British contingent with an overall score of five under.
