2015 UK Open Finals – Minehead

So first of all a quick look back. I’ve made a good start in 2015. Firstly I qualified for the UK Open finals 2015 in Minehead and made it through to the third round….
Beating Brett Claydon in the 1st round was a good start of the tournament. The 2nd round it was a much tougher more experienced opponent in Wayne Jones.

A slow start and I was trailing 2-0 in no time however, I knew I had the game to beat him and was confident that I could turn this around. In the end, with some high check outs and good scoring I turned the match around and walked away with a 5-2 victory.

The break in between 2nd and 3rd round did me no favours. I drew Mensur Suljovic who had been in top form lately. Even though my scoring was there, every time I left a finish, Mensur was 1 dart ahead of me. The final result I believe was a bit flattering for him but nonetheless he played some great darts and that meant the end of my UK Open. Still a very good result for my first televised PDC tournament.
Thanks you all for the support you have given me during this tournament.
