It's owned by Zweeler who used to sponsor this site.
There seems to be a few content editors who work for them.


Cant be arsed looking who the person who wrote that article was but I assumed the first error was a typo and the second one maybe something lost in translation?
If a person whose first language is English wrote it though...deary me.

It's been edited since. The whole gizz from Gaz is frankly cringeworthy.
Can you imagine if there was a thread for typos and mistakes from his rambling blog. It wold be as long as War and Peace.
But well done on spotting one Gaz :DDD: :DDD: :DDD: :DDD:

Why they were following the whole who is taking part story. And Prins had just confirmed. Aileen de Graaf not. So two top 8 players.
I guess the info came from Gary's obsession. There is a Dutch version of the site too.

So what was meant by the term "so called"? Odd.

I had never seen the original article. Until 1 minute ago.
Just asked the Mrs as this is higher level translation than I understand and yes 'bad translation'
Basically means that is the name of the qualifier. But google came out with 'so-called'

coming from you who has made over half a dozen posts since i posted it, and craves attention from everyone, that is hilarious.

If that website wants to be taken as a serious website, those errors are almost bdo like and need to be eradicated.

Here's the google translate version :grin:

Sharon Prins is the first known Dutch player to announce her participation in the qualifying tournament for the World Championship Darts at the PDC.
Earlier Prins showed that he was interested in participating in the so-called Ladies Qualifier. "A nice promotion for the female doctor. I would love it ", said 'The Racing Angel' in conversation with RTL Nieuws.

The 30-year-old Dutch is the sixth player from the top 8 of the ladies ranking who participates in the qualifying tournament for women. Earlier it became known that also Deta Hedman, Lorraine Winstanley, Anastasia Dobromyslova, Fallon Sherrock and Corrine Hammond are going to try to qualify for the World Championship Darts at the PDC.

Prins has participated five times in the tournament at Lakeside. Twice she reached the semi-finals, with Lisa Ashton proving too strong.

Found out the reason for google's mistake. If she was called Prinses rather than Prins you get the following.

Sharon Princess is the first known Dutch player to announce her participation in the qualifying tournament for the World Championship Darts at the PDC.Earlier Princess had already hinted to be interested in participating in the so-called Ladies Qualifier. "A nice promotion for the female doctor. I would love it ", said 'The Racing Angel' in conversation with RTL Nieuws.
