Will Dutchman become 'the new Josh Rock' in 2023?

Josh Rock was considered the darts sensation of the past season. Out of nowhere, he won a PDC Tour Card and 'Rocky' made a huge impression with his results and averages.

Among other things, Rock won a PDC ranking title and became World Champion. As a reward for his achievements, the Northern Irishman was named Newcomer of the Year.

Gian van Veen may just follow in Rock's footsteps this year. The 20-year-old Dutchman picked up a Tour Card at the Q-School in January and has produced excellent figures in his first weeks as a Tour Card holder.

For example, in his first nineteen matches as a Tour Card holder, Van Veen threw nine averages above 98. That number is the same as Rock at the start of 2022.

That Van Veen can also convert good averages into good results he already proved last year. He surprisingly reached the final of a Players Championship tournament after victories over Brendan Dolan, Alan Soutar and Dave Chisnall, among others.
