Durrant is clearly a very good player, but his lack of match practise against top quality opposition has seen him lose in the Masters final to a Challenge Tour Player and go out of the GSOD in the Group Stages.

Wake up call either way. He can either go to Q School, get his card and become a professional darts player pushing himself on a weekly basis against top quality players, or he can decide to miss Q School, play the BDO and exhibitions and make a decent living on those circuits whilst continuing with his job as a Housing Manager.
A year or two on the Challenge Tour would do Durrant good.

I'm being serious. The level of play might not be stronger than at the BDO's top end, but there's a lot more depth to it. And he'd get 20 quality tournament opportunities compressed into just five weekends, which should be compatible with his job. (Plus low-pressure Pro Tour experience as an add-on if he's good enough for the fill-in spots and he wants it.) Short of finally making up his mind and taking the PDC plunge completely, that's the only other way he'll ever find out if he's cut out for the PDC style darts circuit.

Of course, a two-time (maybe soon to be three-time) Lakeside champion doing the Challenge Tour as a learning experience wouldn't sit too well with some people.

If thiscontinues it really could put doubts on the tournaments long term viability. I can imagine sky would not be upset at losing one darts comp to save a bit of money.
You're only now starting to have concerns about the GSOD's long-term viability? The BDO aspect of it has been on life support for years.

McGeeney is going to get completely lost in the PDC when he switches in January, misses far too many darts in the middle of legs to make a difference anywhere.

I dont even think he has the game to get a card.

Duzza should still consider joining the Challenege Tour as Zeyes said.
The PC Tour is probably a step up too quick. :showbum:
