Scott Waites has confirmed his Q-School entry after much speculation whether he’d be part of the BDO contingent taking advantage of relaxed rules on moving over to the PDC.
In Waites’ opinion, he sees Q-School as being a no brainer but also harder than Lakeside this year which he is still involved in.
‘I think Q School will be harder than Lakeside this year,’ Waites said in an interview with Metro.co.uk.
‘It will be difficult, it will be a long day to keep your focus and concentration for, then potentially you’ve got four of them to do.
‘I think it’s going to be mad.’
‘It’s daft not to enter, it’s a good opportunity for everybody now they’ve opened it up,’ Waites continued. ‘But there’s going to be a hell of a lot of entries, there’s going to be a lot of players. I don’t know what the final numbers will be, I would have capped it at something like 512.’
On what would happen job wise if he secured a tour card, Waites has said he’s not had those discussions as he might not get through.
‘I’ve not really sat down and discussed it with my partner because you might not get through, so there’s no point thinking about ifs and buts.
‘I’m going [to Q School] and I hope to qualify, but there’s no point setting goals and discussing what’s going to happen because you might not get through.
