Jeff Smith will return to the PDC Tour after reclaiming his Tour Card on Day 3 at UK Q-School where he produced some brilliance along the way.
This included a 110 checkout which saw him claim the win against Seigo Asada; with the latter sitting on 74 for the match himself.
The former Lakeside finalist spoke afterwards and admitted that it’s ‘lifechanging’. Like many players from further afield, the doubts are there in terms of how often they will come over to compete on the ProTour, Smith though wants to use it a lot more than he did last time and show everyone what he can do.
“It’s so nice to be back finally, it’s life-changing,” said Smith.
“It’s not the first time I’ve won a Card but this time I intend to use my Card better than I did last time.
“I suffered a blitzing from Damon Heta yesterday which set me back a bit, but that pushed me on to come back stronger today knowing I had to get points on the board.
“The possibilities are endless now, I can’t wait to get back over and play, I’m excited to show what I can do.”
