Coral UK Open Qualifier 1

Coral UK Open Qualifier 1

Coral UK openThe PDC boys head to Wigan today, for THREE UK Open qualifiers over a LONG weekend… with over 200 registered to take part, the days will be long and tough, so stamina and concentration will be even more vital than normal.  As the UK Open finals in Minehead start 7th March, three months earlier than previously, the qualifiers are condensed into to three day weekends.  So its all about getting running quickly!

The field of 220 PDC Tour Card Holders and PDPA Associate Members will compete, with prize money in the Coral UK Open Qualifiers this year has increased to £50,000 per event, in line with Players Championship tournaments, with the leading 96 players, plus ties, from the final Coral UK Open Order of Merit to qualify for the Televised Finals.

Play on each day will commence at 12pm and will be held across 32 boards in Wigan.  All games will be the best of 11 legs, with the leading 32 players from the PDC Order of Merit who have entered being exempt to the Last 128 stage, where they are drawn at random with one player per board.

UPDATE:  Two 9 darters so far today, with Dave ‘Ladders’ Ladley and Terry Jenkins both hitting one in round 2!  Ladders suffers the 9 dart curse though, and loses his game!  Make that 3 9 darters as Chizzy hits one too!

ANDY HAMILTON won his first title on the PDC Pro Tour since 2007 after a 6-2 victory over his Stoke compatriot Adrian Lewis in the first Coral UK Open Qualifier on Friday.
