Arron Monk was the first player to win a Tour Card last Thursday. Monk will begin his third Tour Card period. The former World Youth champion previously held a Tour Card from 2011 to 2015 and 2018 to 2019. In 2011, Monk saw off Michael van Gerwen in the final of the PDC World Youth Championship.
The son of former World Master, Colin Monk, he became more known for not living up to his undoubted potential compared to the other half of that World Youth final. As well as being part of the New Kids on the Oche alongside Joe Cullen and World Number One, Michael Smith.
PDC European Q-School Class of 2023 confirmed including Cadby, De Zwaan, Huybrechts, Veenstra and history maker Labre
Usher though perhaps has had the best recent form with 'The Gambler' being formidable over recent days and performing superbly on the MODUS Super Series which he credited in his win, as did two-time ranking winner Payne.
After an exciting final day, Dylan Slevin, Lee Evans, Stephen Burton, Nick Kenny, Keegan Brown, Adam Warner, Graham Hall, Callum Goffin and Christian Perez then managed to earn a Tour Card via the rankings.
Of this list, Brown is the best-known name. The former World Youth Champion won a Players Championship tournament last season, but still lost his Tour Card. But has now bounced back returning to the PDC in 2023 and 2024.
PDC Asian Champion, Perez also made history by becoming the first Filipino dart player ever to win a Tour Card at Q-School.
Adam Warner also has an interesting story in sealing his Tour Card with the former University of Sheffield graduate coming through the darts system while doing his studies. Playing Q-School for the first time last year, it was revealed that he wasn't even going to play this week but will be glad he did.
He has also won a week of the MODUS Super Series as well as playing on the ADC circuit. That is the class of 2023.
