Jeffrey de Zwaan secured double qualification for the PDC European Tour on Friday night. After booking his place for the Austrian Darts Open, ‘The Black Cobra’ also qualified for the European Darts Grand Prix in Sindelfingen.
De Zwaan edged out Mario Robbe in a last-leg decider in the final round. Robbe had the throw in the 11th leg, but the Dutchman hit a superb 12-dart leg to qualify for the European Darts Grand Prix. De Zwaan also proved too strong for Toni Alcinas and Jelle Klaasen, while he averaged over 108 in his second match against Klaasen.
The World Matchplay semi-finalist will be joined by Dutch duo Vincent van der Voort and Niels Zonneveld in Sindelfingen. Van der Voort defeated John Michael 6-2 in the final round after beating Kim Huybrechts as well. Zonneveld will make his European Tour debut after overcoming compatriot Vincent Kamphuis.
Raymond van Barneveld missed out on qualification after losing to Dimitri van den Bergh in his final. The Belgian took out 138 in the tenth leg to claim a 6-4 win over the five-time world champion. Krzysztof Ratajski and Madars Razma also secured their places for the European Darts Grand Prix.
