The Professional Darts Corporation reported today a record number of entries for this year’s World Series of Darts qualifier in Las Vegas:
THERE will be a record entry of over 190 players for the 2019 US Darts Masters and North American Championship Qualifiers in Las Vegas next week.
The PDC’s World Series of Darts returns to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, with two days of qualifying on July 2-3 preceding the stage events on July 4-5.
Eight places are on offer in the stage events, with each winner of the four qualifying events being joined by the top four players from the Qualifiers Order of Merit.
A total of 191 players have entered across the four qualifying tournaments, with interest building year-on-year since the World Series of Darts first visited Las Vegas in 2017.
This year’s entrants are headlined by three-time World Champion John Part, 1994 World Matchplay winner Larry Butler, current PDC Tour Card Holder Dawson Murschell and reigning North American Darts Champion Jeff Smith.
Recent BetVictor World Cup of Darts representatives Jim Long (Canada), Darin Young and Chuck Puleo (both USA) will also be in action.
2008 UK Open finalist Gary Mawson is joined in the field by father-and-son duo Dan and Daniel Lauby, former World Championship qualifiers David Fatum, Ken MacNeil, Dan Olson, Ross Snook and Dave Richardson.
Chris White, Shawn Brenneman, Jim Widmayer and Roger Carter are other players with big-stage experience bidding to secure their spot.
