As others have said their are player who would be more deserving than Glen anyway that have been left out in the likes of Lewis and Clayton. Still idiotic not having events in Asia they should put some of the top Asian players from their OOM. Into the Aussie and NZ events but won’t.

Having no events in Asia is surprising, however one thing the PDC are not is idiotic, so there will be a very good reason why.

Well yes it will come down to money or venues or some other issue. But not having an event in what has the potential to be by far your biggest market is silly. Particularly given the good performance levels of those at the top of the Asian tour. In an ideal world I would make WSOD 8 events In 4 blocks played over every continent.

So you could have Aussie and NZ event together. 2 events in Asia together (China/Hong Kong and Japan would make most sense). Germany and SA together. And USA and South America ( Brazil most likely).

Then it truly is a World Series promoting growth on every continent.

I agree with Phil over a World Series in South America. I think there is a lot of potential that could be tapped. There are good players like Norman Madhoo and Sudesh Fitzgerald who are deserving of opportunities. Also I'd like to see Spain host in this at some point, because the Iberian region has shown consistency in participation in PDC/WDF tournaments.

Doesn’t the Gibraltan Government pay loads of money in hosting fees to have event there to promote tourism for the weekend ?

If Spain had a promoter offering similar money I am sure they would get a ET event.

The old Gilmore will be making the 6 hour drive to Vegas for the North American leg. I was hoping to see Raymond do the business. Was surprised that they picked the wonderkid from North England over him. How about them apples? I want Amercian wonderboy Darren Young to open a can of WA.

The old Gilmore will give you live updates.

"Stay thirsty" is clearly the new "have a tall cool one".

RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD and James Wade will compete in the PDC World Series of Darts events in Brisbane, Melbourne and Hamilton in August after being confirmed alongside four further qualifiers from Australia and New Zealand.

Five-time World Champion Van Barneveld, a former World Series finalist in both Australia and New Zealand, will be part of the Oceanic treble-header as he continues his final year before retirement by competing in August’s events.

The Dutch legend, 52, will be joined by reigning European Champion Wade - the 2018 World Series of Darts Finals winner and a former Perth Darts Masters finalist - as the final two of eight PDC representatives for the tournaments.

Wade, 36, was recently a Premier League semi-finalist after finishing in fourth position in the final league table following a strong season in the event, and has now spent more than a decade at the sport’s top level.

The duo join the previously-announced Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross, Gary Anderson, Daryl Gurney, Peter Wright and Simon Whitlock as the eight PDC representatives for the three World Series events, where they will take on eight Oceanic representatives in each first round.

Former Auckland Darts Masters winner Kyle Anderson and 2016 World Youth Champion Corey Cadby will also compete in all three events, while top Kiwi Cody Harris is set to take part in the NZ Darts Masters, presented by Burger King & TAB.

In addition, Australian duo Damon Heta and James Bailey have now secured places in the Brisbane Darts Masters and Melbourne Darts Masters as the top two players in the DartPlayers Australia standings.

Perth's Heta is enjoying a superb year on the DPA ProTour, and has previously competed in four World Series of Darts events - reaching the quarter-finals in Melbourne last year - and the 2018 World Series of Darts Finals.

Brisbane's Bailey, meanwhile, sits second in the DPA standings at present, having competed in the 2018 Melbourne Darts Masters and at the 2019 PDC World Championship.

Christchurch’s Haupai Puha, who reached the World Cup quarter-finals for New Zealand alongside Harris last weekend, and Wellington’s two-time World Cup representative Craig Caldwell will compete in the NZ Darts Masters as the top two players from the DPNZ rankings.

A further three places in the Brisbane Darts Masters and Melbourne Darts Masters will be on offer in DPA Qualifiers, which will be held from July 4-7 in Warilla, alongside one spot in the NZ Darts Masters. For details, please visit dartplayersaustralia.com.

The DPNZ Qualifiers, which will offer two places in the NZ Darts Masters and one apiece in the Brisbane and Melbourne events, will be held on June 29-30 at the Hornby Working Men’s Club in Christchurch. For details, please visit dartplayers.co.nz.

We all know that. But Barney’s name still sells tickets especially important with large arena shows like these.

The iconic place of Hamilton..

but they only muffle him in so that he's guaranteed a place at another event in the Netherlands and they can sell more tickets. Another farewell for Barney

Its RVBs last year. He deserves a vacation in Australia and New Zealand in August. Current World Champion Glen Durrent is the only other PDC darter that should be added this week to the list of PDC players that can play in Australia and Hamilton, New Zealand. White has previously only 'placed' as a quarter finalists in tv events.
