Among the standout stars of the 2019 PDC World Championship was Devon Petersen.
Nathan Aspinall and Luke Humphries may have stolen the spotlight. But Petersen, along with Brendan Dolan, Ryan Joyce and Ryan Searle, upset the odds to mount a promising run at the Alexandra Palace. The South African beat Wayne Jones in a tense tie, before battling past seeds Ian White and Steve West. Aspinall ended his run at the last 16 stage, but the African Warrior had done enough to retain his PDC Tour Card.
Speaking to Bradford’s Telegraph & Argus, the Yorkshire-based thrower expressed his delight at staying on the Pro Tour.
“I knew that I had the game to do well (in the World Championships) but I just had to get on that stage and do it,” said the popular 32-year-old.
“It’s a great relief to get back into the world’s top 64 because it means that I don’t have to go to Q School again to stay on the PDC Pro Tour.
