This year: Brilliant so far, I’ve done better then I expected I ever would but I’m happy with how my games improving and I’m just going to keep plugging away and not get ahead of myself.
Dartsnews : Also you have qualified for the UK Open and a few of the Euro Tour events streamed online, how valuable have these experiences been for you in only your first full year on the tour?
Chris : All experience is valuable regardless, and playing on the stage in front of thousands of people is great, it makes you want more and more. Hopefully I can go better next year and use this experience gained so far.
