INTERVIEW: Van Tergouw taking his time: 'I am still very young'
Justin van Tergouw is one of the youngest players walking around on the darts tour. Although many fans would like to see the Dutchman officially move over to the PDC , the 17-year-old refuses to make hasty decisions concerning his future.
The young prospect is taking small steps on his way to the top of the darting world, competing in the Development Tour for the first time at the end of 2016 and in a Euro Tour Qualifier this year. Van Tergouw will also be playing in the qualifier for the Dutch Darts Masters, with the main tournament starting on the 1st of September.
The next step will be discussed with his mother or with his manager Co Stompé, he says in an interview with Dartsnieuws.com. ''Usually, I discuss such things with my mother and/or Stompé. I only take a certain step when I am fully confident that it is the right decision. If not, I prefer to wait as I am still very young.''
While Van Tergouw is slowly working on his development, Corey Cadby's uprising is much more noticable. The Australian won the PDC Youth World Championship last year, and has since appeared in the PDC World Championship and multiple World Series-tournaments. Van Tergouw, being the BDO Youth World Champion himself, thinks Cadby could go a long way.
''I think Cadby is a great player, just like Ted Evetts, Adam Hunt and Dimitri van den Bergh. I like seeing Cadby get the better of some of the big names, I think he is going to make it far in darts.''
