Mark McGeeney could be the next player to jump from the BDO to the PDC.
After Lakeside 2018 champion Glen Durrant revealed that he could attend Q-School in January, runner-up McGeeney has stated similar intentions. Despite establishing himself as a big name on the BDO circuit, the Stockport-based ace is ready for the PDC challenge.
“I’ll be going to Q-School, definitely,” the Gladiator told the Weekly Dartscast.
“That was decided a while ago. I think any BDO player would be foolish not to go because if you don’t get your Tour Card you can come back, which was never the rule before.”
McGeeney earned a spot in the PDC Grand Slam, having made his debut last year, and is excited for the challenge.
“I can’t wait to play in it again,” he said.
“Last year, it was a real eye-opener. The way they (the PDC) organise everything, it’s so professional, it’s amazing.”
