Keegan Brown, Ross Smith and Maik Langendorf will make their debut at the World Series of Darts Finals after coming through the qualification tournament.
Langendorf prevented a Belgian clash between Ronny and Kim Huybrechts in the final, as the German beat Ronny Huybrechts 6-3 in the semi-finals. Langendorf then went on to beat his brother Kim Huybrechts 6-1 in the final round of the World Series of Darts Finals Qualifier.
Keegan Brown impressed in his semi-final against Stephen Bunting to reach the final. The former World Youth Champion averaged 116 to edge out ‘The Bullet’. Then Brown whitewashed Ron Meulenkamp to claim one of the four places. Ross Smith also came through after beating Darren Johnson 6-5 in the final.
Beaton returns to the stage of this event, after coming through the qualifier in 2016 as well. ‘The Bronzed Adonis’ beat Ryan Searle 6-4 in the final to confirm his spot.
Four spots in Vienna were up for grabs as players competed for the chance to join the likes of World Series event winners Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross, Peter Wright, Gary Anderson, Michael Smith and Mensur Suljovic in the three-day event from November 2-4.
