Danny Baggish hasn't had the best of years in terms of darts however it can't be all bad if he is concluding it with a trip to the World Darts Championship. The American spoke to 'TungstenTales' about how it felt to miss out last year, potentially lose his Tour card and his excitement for Ally Pally.
Last year Baggish didn't qualify for the World Championships and it was a hard pill to swallow to say the least.
“It was quite frustrating to not play because I made the decision to not qualify through the CDC because I liked my chances of qualifying through the Pro Tour but it didn’t go as planned so I had to sit and watch.”
Although he has qualified this year he potentially might not get his Tour card for the following year and if he doesn't get it due to his World Championships performances he has decided his only outcome.
“If I don’t retain my tour card I won’t be going to Q School.”
However 'The Gambler' is still content with his year in darts and especially the way its ending. When the interviewer said "You can't be too disappointed ending your year at Ally Pally" Baggish responded with this:
“No not at all, I remember last year at the same time I was watching and I made a post about how frustrating it was sitting on the couch watching it. I told myself I was going to be there this year and here I am.”
“I’m all here for darts. I love watching it, I love playing it so when a majors on especially the World Championships it’s a great atmosphere, a great venue and always a great tournament.”
The 39 year old had this to say as he couldn't contain his excitement when asked about his trip to the Palace.
“I can’t wait, I’m ready and I know I can beat any player in the world. I’ve been playing some good stuff in the last couple of months, Its exciting going there and I never think I’m an underdog I’m going to go there and hopefully produce some upsets.”
“It's going to be full of a lot of fun and a lot of celebration and hopefully a huge run."
