Baggish looking forward to World Cup of Darts debut with Van Dongen: "I truly believe that Jules and I can do some damage"
After not being involved in PDC competition since April due to caring for his son who was involved in a car accident, Danny Baggish will play not only at the US Darts Masters, North American Championship but also the World Cup of Darts.
Teaming with Jules van Dongen, it is a new look USA line-up but one with pedigree as both are Tour Card holders.
“To be able to represent your country is something that I have always dreamed of, and I was unable to travel for the World Cup last year, and I was devastated,” Baggish revealed to the Weekly Dartscast.
“I made sure this year that this wasn’t going to be happen, and I can’t wait to partner up with my buddy Jules.
“He has got a taste of the stage now with the Euro Tours, so I can’t wait. I don’t go into it seeing us as an underdog, I go in thinking we can win every single match.
“That might be cliché as a lot of people say that, but I truly believe that Jules and I can do some damage.”

Speaking of that car accident, Baggish has vowed to return to the tour and is continuing to approach the game with a care free mindset knowing that there are people in a worse position.
“I’m able to play darts and do it with a smile on my face because there are worse things out there that can be happening to all of us, so I took that approach and it worked out for me.
“I am going to continue to take that approach and just love the game again.
“I’m never going to give up. I will always give 100 per cent, I’m not going to make excuses, no matter what I go through.”
