European Q-School: Dutch delight as ten Tour Card winners confirmed
The identity of the first ten players to win Tour Cards through European Q-School has been confirmed.
The Dutch contingent performed especially well, claiming five of the ten spots up for grabs. Jeffrey de Zwaan, Mario Robbe, Tytus Kanik and Gabriel Clemens were all victorious in the four events in Hildesheim. The Dutch pair of de Zwaan and Robbe were joined by three more compatriots who won a place through the Order of Merit. Danny Noppert has successfully completed his switch from the BDO to the PDC by claiming a Tour Card. He is joined by Dirk van Duijvenbode and Vincent Kamphuis, who were both losing finalists this week.
Robert Marijanovic became the second German to gain a spot on the PDC Tour after Clemens by accumulating enough points. Jose Antonio Justicia Perales, Saturday's losing finalist, joins Cristo Reyes and Antonio Alcinas on the Tour. The list is completed by Belgium's Andy van Baelen.
Narrowly missing out were Diogo Portela - who would have earned a card had he beaten Kamphuis in Sunday's quarter-final - and Krzysztof Ratajski. They are among the 37 players from European Q-School who can now play in the six UK Open qualifiers.
