Final Three 2015 UK Open Qualifiers

UK Open qualifiers again in Wigan, and each of the three £50,000 PDC ProTour event features over 200 players, with PDC Tour Card Holders joined by PDPA Associate Members as the second day of the weekend’s treble-header.

Another three day ‘weekend’ of darts for The Artist, as he continues with the second half of the UK Open Qualifiers.  After the first three days and £1,000 won, Kevin will be safe for the TV finals in Minehead.  The next part of the plan is to do at least the same again, as the top 32 qualified players skip through to round 3 in the TV finals, getting past the short format dangerous rounds.

As a top 32 seed Kevin gets a bye in round 1 each day.
