UK Open Qualifiers 4-6: Entries Confirmed!

coral-uk-open

The entries have been confirmed for the final three Coral UK Open qualifiers which will take place from February 10th-12th at Wigan’s Robin Park Tennis Centre. The qualification triple-header will see over 230 PDC Tour Card Holders and PDPA Associate Members competing for spots in March’s Coral UK Open TV Finals.

Friday’s fourth UK Open Qualifier will commence at 2pm to accomodate the Premier League stars travelling down from Nottingham after night two on Thursday, with the events on Saturday and Sunday beginning at 12pm.

Following the culmination of this weekend’s triple-header, the top 96 players from the UK Open Order of Merit will qualify for the Coral UK Open TV Finals from March 3rd-5th, with the rest of the field made up of 32 Riley’s amateur qualifiers.

World number three Peter Wright will hope to cement his place at the top of the Order of Merit having won two of the opening qualifiers last week. Wright accrued £21, 500 over the course of the three days, and he’s followed by Saturday’s winner Simon Whitlock, and Sunday’s runner-up Michael Smith, who missed two darts to defeat Snakebite.

Defending UK Open champion Michael van Gerwen is scheduled to participate in the second set of qualifiers. Van Gerwen endured a disappointing start to his Pro Tour season last week, suffering defeats in the last 64, the last 32 and the quarter-finals respectively.

‘The Green Machine’ sits in 16th position on the Order of Merit and has confirmed his spot in Minehead, although he is not yet certain to enter the competition at the third-round stage. MvG posted a series of cryptic tweets last Sunday appearing to criticise the qualification format, therefore it will be interesting to see how he fares this weekend.

Two-time world champions Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis, who sit 4th and 5th respectively on the Order of Merit after both reaching finals last weekend, will be in attendance along with other Premier League stars James Wade, Dave Chisnall, Jelle Klaasen & Kim Huybrechts.

Two-time UK Open champion Raymond van Barneveld is another high-profile star that will be competing at the Robin Park Tennis Centre. Van Barneveld has expressed his desire to compete more frequently on the PDC Pro Tour in 2017, and he performed solidly in the opening trio of events to finish the weekend in 10th position on the Order of Merit.

The 2012 UK Open champion Robert Thornton will also be vying to secure his spot in the final set of qualifiers. ‘The Thorn’ endured a miserable opening to his Pro Tour season last week, winning just one game all weekend and amassing a miserly £250 in prize money. The Scot needs a minimum of £500 in the final three events to make it to Minehead.

Elsewhere, the likes of John Part, Ronnie Baxter and Paul Nicholson, all of whom regained their PDC Tour Cards at Q-School, will also be in action, as will former UK Open finalists Andy Hamilton and Wes Newton; both of whom failed to register any prize money towards the UK Open Order of Merit in the opening triple-header.

Nine-time major finalist Terry Jenkins will be bidding to secure his UK Open berth. ‘The Raging Bull’ didn’t enter the first three qualifiers after claiming last year that he would no longer compete in floor events. However, the 2014 UK Open finalist will halt his Pro Tour hiatus over the weekend in an attempt to qualify for ‘The FA Cup of Darts’.

However, Five-time UK Open winner Phil Taylor will not be competing in Wigan. ‘The Power’ opted not to compete in the opening triple-header last week, therefore the 56-year-old will not feature at the Coral UK Open Finals in Minehead next month.

Nevertheless, nine tour card holders besides Taylor have not entered the final three qualification events. This list includes Mickey Mansell, Kim Viljanen, Ross Smith, Mark Barilli, Steve Hine, Scott Darbyshire, Simon Preston, Harry Robinson and John Norman Jr.

Each tournament will also feature live streaming from two boards throughout each day online at www.livepdc.tv for all PDCTV-HD Subscribers worldwide, and live streaming will also be available via selected bookmakers’ websites.
