Peter Wright definitely out of Players Championship Finals after early loss in final ProTour

Following Nathan Aspinall, Peter Wright also missed out on qualification for the Players Championship Finals. 'Snakebite' failed to finish in the top 64 of the Players Championship Order of Merit.

Players can only qualify for the final tournament in Minehead through the 30 Players Championship tournaments. Wright had a very poor season on the Pro Tour. In recent weeks, Wright climbed slightly in the rankings, but it proved to be more than insufficient for a spot at the season closer.

The two-time world champion ended up playing sixteen of the thirty Players Championship tournaments. No less than eight times Wright lost in the first round and earned no prize money.

Missing the Players Championship Finals has consequences for Wright in the world rankings. After all, he won the Players Championship Finals in 2021 and the prize money won then disappeared from the world rankings at the end of November. However, that loss was somewhat compensated by the fact that 'Snakebite' managed to win the European Championship Nevertheless, 100,000 pounds will still go off his prize money on the PDC Order of Merit.

Wright is not the only major winner this season who failed to qualify for the Players Championship Finals. World Matchplay champion Nathan Aspinall is also missing from Minehead. However, despite 'The Asp' missing most of the ProTour season, he confirmed that it was his intention to miss it due to his partner Kirsty turning 30, and usually they have to spend it in Minehead.
