Gates wins final tournament of CDC Tour but falls just short of spot at World Darts Championship; Spellman, Buntz and Cameron to Ally Pally

David Cameron and Leonard Gates have won the last two tournaments on the CDC Tour. For Cameron, it proved enough for a spot at the World Darts Championship, while Gates fell just short.

The CDC Tour is open to darters from North America and consists of 12 tournaments. The number one in the final ranking and then the best American and best Canadian receive an invitation to the World Championships at Alexandra Palace.

Alex Spellman, who won the tenth tournament of the CDC Tour on Friday, finished first in the standings. The battle for the second American spot was between Stowe Buntz and Leonard Gates. Buntz did excellent business by defeating his rival in a straight duel during the eleventh event. Buntz eventually made it to the finals, which he lost to David Cameron.

Both players secured participation in the World Darts Championship through that result. Gates did win the final tournament, but was ultimately just short of qualifying for the World Darts Championship.
