David Evans Secures Ally Pally Spot and PDC Tour Card
David Evans surged his way to the top of the PDC Challenge Tour Order of Merit last weekend, in the process securing himself a two-year PDC Tour Card and a qualification spot for the PDC 2021 World Championships.
Evans claimed the top spot on the Order of Merit by over almost £1,000, picking up two Challenge Tour wins out of the final six events this weekend.
Nicknamed “Stretch”, David first burst on the scene way back in 2002 at the Winmau World Masters, where at the age of just 13 year-old, Evans reached the last 16 of the prestigious major tournament. On that occasion young David lost to eventual runner-up Tony West 2-1, but learned greatly and gained many admirers for his darting ability at such a young age.
Since then David has been earning his stripes throughout the darts circuit, working hard to consistently improve and work his way up the professional darting ladder.
In the last 12 months Evans is now bearing the fruits of his years of darting labour, as he made his BDO World Championship debut back in January, making it to the quarter-finals, and now has earned a spot at the PDC World Championship and a spot on the global PDC tour.
