Scott Waites has for a long time now shunned the prospect of attempting Q-School but after the BDO’s lifting of restrictions he will be massively considering it.
Waites spoke to Live Darts at the PDC Fishing Championship and as well as him, he believes 90 per cent of players will attempt the switch in January.
“It’s opened the door completely now,” Waites told Live Darts.
“It can only be good for everyone involved.
“I was talking to Barry Hearn and he seems really impressed by it and I think it’s a really good move forward from the BDO.
“This is a positive move that I see and it can only be good for the sport.”
When asked if he would be tempted to enter Q School, Waites replied: “Certainly, yeah.
“Come January I think you’ll probably see about 90 per cent of the lads that play in the BDO go to Q School and have a crack at that.”
