New Tour Card holder Evans on new Q-School format: "You've got two lots of stress so I'm glad I don't have to go through that"

David Evans will be involved in his first full year on the PDC ProTour after coming through the Challenge Tour in 2020 and this led to a World Championship debut where he lost out to Ross Smith.

"It was amazing, it was probably one of the best experiences of my life to be fair. Being on that iconic stage at the Ally Pally, it was really good to be on that stage," said Evans to Tungsten Tales.

"It was a bit weird obviously not having a crowd. But we got used to that and just continued practicing and getting used to the vibe."

"It would have been nice to play in front of a crowd because that's one thing I do like a lot. I love having a bit of banter with the crowd and it gives you a bit of adrenaline as well."

As a result, Evans who has been known for some time as one of the best players not to have a Tour Card will not have to go to Q-School which he is pleased about due to the new format.

"The new change of format would have been difficult because you've got to play the first stage and the second stage. You've got two lots of stress so I'm glad I don't have to go through that."

"The standard of the Challenge Tour is amazing. There's a couple of pro's before I got my Tour Card who I said would you go back to playing Challenge Tour and they were like no not a chance. The players on the Challenge Tour are unpredictable, some of the players you know what you're going to get out of them. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some new faces on the tour."
