New PDC Tour Card holder Josh Rock on Q-School glory: "It'll probably sink in when I go to my first ProTour"

After being highly touted for sometime, Josh Rock achieved his darting destiny by sealing a PDC Tour Card and will make his debut on the ProTour this weekend.

"It still hasn't sunk in. I think it'll probably sink in when I go to my first ProTour but it hasn't sunk in yet," said Rock to Weekly Dartscast.

"Before I played Ted Evetts, my manager said do you want to know what you need and I was like just let me enjoy it. After I won the first leg, I looked over and saw John O'Shea winking at me. But I got told and I flooded into tears."

But how did he start in the sport? Rock detailed how he started playing.

"I've only really come onto the scene and started playing tournaments since 2016. It was my dad when I was older going to the pubs, in the leagues and really getting into it."

This led to him representing to his country and he described the feeling.

"It was so nerve-wracking, the nerves were very much there. Shaking like a leaf then as soon as I got on the stage, it soon went away."

Killarney breakout

His breakout which brought him to the attention of many was over on the WDF side at the Killarney Darts Festival.

"I took a lot from that weekend. I got to the final but I didn't believe I could hit 110+ averages just yet and I didn't realise how good I actually played when I watched it back."

This led to him signing with Big Five Sports Management which he didn't hesitate in doing.

"As soon as I got the contract in my hand, I signed straight away. I couldn't be round a better bunch of people."
