David Pallett had a brilliant run this past weekend at the UK Open. Despite not having a tour card, the Shropshire ace lost out to Gary Anderson on his best run in a while.
Pallett admitted after his loss that he was gutted about how the semi-final went. In addition though he said it was a good weekend.
He finally said ahead of the rest of the year this has filled him full of confidence ahead of his attempt to regain his tour card.
“I’m gutted with the way the semi-final went but it’s been a good weekend for me,” said Pallett, who has moved to Kettering this year.
“In the first ten legs, Gary wasn’t firing on all cylinders and an average Dave Pallett took five legs from him. I didn’t take advantage of it and you know when he’s going to come back at you he’s going to hit you, and he did.
“I lost my Tour Card but my form has been better than a lot of Tour Card holders out there and I’m full of confidence. I’d have snapped your hand off to reach the semi-finals at the start of the weekend and I’ll learn from this.”
