Justin van Tergouw has pulled out for the final day of the Q-School in Hildesheim. The Dutchman gave up after losing in the third round to Ricardo Pietreczko on Saturday.
On Thursday and Friday he also lost at this stage, and as a result Van Tergouw collected three points after three days. He had needed a tournament win on Sunday to pick up a PDC Tour Card at the Q-School.
Ill ahead of the Q-School
Van Tergouw’s team said a flu is the reason for his withdrawal. The two-time BDO World Youth Champion faced a stomach flu ahead of the four-day event in Germany. Yet he decided to travel to Hildesheim last Wednesday.
The same stomach flu ensured that Van Tergouw can’t play further at the Q-School. He is not fit enough to play on Sunday and traveled back home to the Netherlands on Saturday.
As the 18-year-old has played at the Q-School this year, Van Tergouw is eligable to play on the PDC Challenge Tour and all European Tour qualifiers. He can also enter the Development Tour, the youth system from the PDC.
