Waites claims double win to begin PDC Home Tour Group 27
Scott Waites is currently one win away from claiming victory in the latest PDC Home Tour group after back-to-back wins to begin the night.
Waites saw off Steve Beaton to start the night in a 5-3 victory, hitting a 97.4 average with five 180’s in a superb display.
He continued from there whitewashing Ron Meulenkamp in a 5-0 win with three ton plus checkouts en route as he looks to make best use of his second chance.
Ross Smith also dealt Meulenkamp’s hopes a blow after a 5-1 win with a 99.7 average and 5/7 on the doubles as he looks to level with Waites.
Every evening, the four players will each face off; with each match being the best of nine legs. This group stage lasts 32 days with that amount of players set to reach the next round to play it out from there to crown a winner.
All players have webcams set up in their houses and say their scores out loud; to make sure that they can be inputted correctly without any cheating taking place.
With each night’s action commencing at 1930 BST, darts commentator Dan Dawson will be on hand to talk through proceedings; which will also include live score graphics on screen.
In addition all live-scores can be followed on DartConnect; with match statistics being available after every match.
