Clayton hits 103 average in high quality win over Waites, Hopp gets off to winning start against Wilkinson
The final semi-final spot will be given out tonight in the PDC Home Tour Play-Offs and unlike some nights, there is not a standout player so far in terms of the standings with wins for Jonny Clayton, Scott Waites and Max Hopp.
The former two in Clayton and Waites began proceedings and it was 'The Ferret' who started proceedings with the first points as he averaged 103.8 with four 180's in a high quality tie against 'Scotty 2 Hotty' winning 6-3.
Hopp was second up and despite the tie being a struggle for most of it, 'The Maximiser' got off to a winning start himself claiming a 6-3 victory over Carl Wilkinson with an average of 83.
Wilkinson who was excellent in the initial phase had his fate set. Waites kept himself in proceedings by whitewashing his fellow Yorkshireman who only averaged 73.4 en route.
The players who win Groups One-Four will go onto Semi-Final One on Wednesday June 3 with the winners from Groups Five-Eight set to play on Thursday June 4 before that aforementioned Championship Group.
All games will be best of 11 legs and each night’s action will commence at 1930 BST, darts commentator Dan Dawson will be on hand to talk through proceedings; which will also include live score graphics on screen.
In addition all live-scores can be followed on DartConnect; with match statistics being available after every match.
