2015 Half Year Review

It’s early July, about half way through the PDC season, so it’s a good time to have a look at where The Artist is.  Kevin’s form in 2015 has been patchy, and you just know that Kevin will be practicing harder and looking to come back with a bang in the second half of 2015. Kev is currently ranked 24th in the world, with £131,500 won over two years.  A good run in Sept/Oct could easily see him move quickly back up that ranking table.

It’s on the floor where Kevin needs some better luck, as his ranking of 35th with £17,000 won is really not reflective of his talent.  Being in that top 32 is very important, ensuring you’re a seed in floor events and getting into certain TV tournaments.  Just £750 separates The Artist from that 32nd spot, so that will be first on the list of targets.

The good news is that Kev qualified for both of the September Euro tour events, winning through in both qualifiers in Wigan, so that guarantees him at least £1000 in each event, which goes onto both the main ranking plus the pro tour order of merit.
