Jonny Clayton reached the latter stages of the Grand Slam losing out to Michael van Gerwen who he previously saw off in the group stages.
Afterwards Clayton reflected on his year in an interview with the PDC summing it up as great. In his opinion if he keeps playing the way he does he will reach the top 16 which is something he will be proud of.
“It’s been a great year for me,” said Clayton. “Winning my first PDC title and my run at the Grand Slam have been the highlights and have put the top 16 in reach for me.
“I won’t worry too much about it because I having been thinking about it to get to this position so I don’t want to change my attitude now.
“If I carry playing the way I have been then I should make the top 16 sooner rather than later and that is something to be proud of.
“There are also lots of other opportunities that come with that and it would be huge for my career.”
