So they are talking some 200 players then. Will be interesting to see the standard across the events and with the take up on this if the PDC look to expand things next year.

This is the PDC. You're asking the wrong question.

Will enough viewers be interested in it, that they can get make money from TV, sponsors and punters?

I don't think they'll do a tour yet. But I do think that these 2 places are the start of _something_.

There's definitely worse players than Ashton with a card I'd say. She'd have to hit a bit of form during the q-school days though, definitely won't be easy.

Well, we have the results of her 3 Challenge Tour weekends to go on. 2 of those sets of results would leave her miles away from the tour card, the third set would give her barely enough Q School points if she were to reach the same rounds there. However, Q School is significantly tougher than a Challenge Tour weekend: 1) The fields are two to three times larger, so one or two extra games to survive in each tournament, 2) unless you're winning a card outright you've got to keep your form for four days rather than two, and 3) the field includes the additional 30-odd players who've just lost their tour cards, so there are a lot more players who are at least borderline main tour-worthy than in a CT field.

There being worse players than Ashton with a card currently is neither here nor there, anyway. The relevant question is if they were worse than her when they won their tour cards.

Your not, for 99% people its a complete lottery, especially for the people stuck in the 80 early 90 averages.

But there are always a few people a cut above the rest. Cadby walked it, Norris went straight through in one day and even hit a 9 darters.

If she hits 85-90 averages for two or three days of q- school I think she could get there. Or just one phenomenal day. It's also about dealing with the pressure and her experience might come in handy there.

I wouldn't put money on her winning a card, but it wouldn't surprise me immensely if she did either.

Hence why I said she could win one and not she would win one.

Smith-Neale Won the Masters. Lisa is not close to winning that against the men. He's 37th on the Challenge Tour. Draw you own conclusions.
