THE European Darts Trophy started on Friday 11th Sept with the first round of the PDC European Tour event in Muelheim, Germany. The three-day £115,000 tournament saw 48 players competing at the RWE Sporthalle, with the event streamed LIVE ONLINE throughout.
It’s been what feels a LONG time since the PDC tour’s last event, and Kevin is itching to get back on it, so it’s now time to concentrate again, as the PDC events will come thick and fast again from now till the end of the year.
The Artist starts in round 1 on Friday against a very experienced former BDO no. 1, Alan Norris.
Round 1: Kevin Painter 6-3 Alan Norris
Competing in his first PDC event for over two months, Kevin looked as if he had never been away as he impressively saw off former Lakeside runner-up Alan Norris 6-3, landing four 180s in the process.
Round 2: Kevin Painter 6-4 Vincent van der Voort
Another good win against the 15th seed sees Kevin progress to Sunday’s finals day.
Round 3: Kevin Painter 4-6 Michael Smith (2)
