Scott Waites will be competing on the PDC Tour from next season after claiming a Tour Card at 2020 PDC Q-School on the final day in Wigan.

Waites who has been a BDO stalwart for most of his career will now turn his attentions to competing with the elite of the PDC every week and it is something he can’t wait for.

A lot has previously been made about ‘Scotty 2 Hotty’ never switching previously but he admitted in his post match interview that the timing has never been right but now it is for him to give it a proper go.

“To do this is amazing,” said Waites. “I knew I had to come here today and just win it outright, and I’ve played my game all day.

“Keane is a fantastic player so to beat him 5-0 is amazing, but with a bit of experience he’s going to be an awesome player.

“The time has never been right for me to move over before but now I think it is right to have a go so let’s see what happens.

“I’m going to put a lot of practice in now, this is going to give me the ‘get up and go’ I need.”
