The PDC’s North American World Series of Darts broke new ground with a record-breaking 190+ players battling in Las Vegas to fill just 8 qualifying spots over 2 days of grueling competition.  In the end, it was a newcomer who prevailed as the favorites fell.

Florida, USA’s Daniel Baggish defeated reigning champion, Canada’s Jeff Smith, to win the PDC North American Championship at the Mandalay Bay.  On July 4th, the day of his country’s birth, Baggish’s career was also born, overcoming his first time on the stage by taking out the most experienced of the North American qualifiers.

DCTV Fan Alerts bring new intrigue to professional darts

, ,

DartConnect TV’s Free Fan Alerts provide fans around the world the perfect way to stay on top of their favorite player’s performances.

As the service grows, it is starting to provide an indication of popularity and fan interest.  Check out the Top 10 PDC Players from last weekend’s Players Championship Event 1, based on dart fans signing up to follow them on DartConnect TV.

The top position was not lost on the reigning BDO World Champion, Glen Durrant.  Hot on the heels of making the switch to play in the PDC, dart fans everywhere signed on to make sure they followed Durrant’s progress in his first attempt at the pro tour. Could he hold his own?  Would he find himself outmatched?

As the main man from what is considered the “minor leagues” of the BDO, he had much to prove that he belonged on the PDC stage.

Durrant lost in the opening round of Event 1, but stormed back the next day to make the finals of Event 2, losing out to an in-form Dave Chisnall, #9 on the Fan Follow rankings.

The notoriety was not lost on Durrant, as he mentioned he was fully aware of how many eyeballs were  on him in these recent articles from Darts News and Metro News:
