Stuart travelled to Wigan in January as the PDC proTour starts up again. It was a mixed (but positive) start, with KO earning qualification for the German Darts Masters European tour event. The highlight of the day must be the 6-0 thrashing of much fancied Keegan Brown, who has been playing well on TV the last year or so.
The European events are big money tournaments, so that’s already a good start to the year, with good minimum prize money already guaranteed.
The year will continue with long weekends of UK Open qualifiers, the first of which starts 5th Feb.
