He's taking advantage of his chances thus far.

Laura Turner - why is her third dart odd... like a totally different grip pattern to the other two when she throws?

Probably get slaughtered for this but I think its worth a bit of a debate, here goes, The Youth comp was for under 19,s, no disrespect to the finalists but (again) an under 19,s championship ended up with a 16 year old girl competing against a 12 year old boy !!!,
Averages that would be outside the top 200 in the Dev Tour ( which you can enter at 16),
Just a thought !!

Why are you comparing a BDO/ED youth competition with the PDC's Development Tour? 

The BDO youth events are for youngsters under 18 whereas the Development Tour is for players up to 23 (24 depending on when your birthday is) so is not a youth tour.  If you removed all the Development Tour players aged 18 and over what sort of averages do you then get?

If you are going to compare the BDO/ED youth events with anything affiliated to the PDC then it should be against the JDC.

Like I said,  a slaughtering expected, ( and taken out of context, )  the IOM event was under 19, and I may add that the Dev Tour is still classed as Youth as Dimitri V D Bergh will confirm with his Youth WC wins coming from the Dev Tour, I thought this might be read as a BDO kicking but its not,

Again,  my opinion, and I play in the same Pub league as Luke and he is a very good player,

Yes I know theat DT players qualify for the PDC World Youth Championship and that Dancing Dimi is the current champion, but someone of 24 is not a youth.


As you are comparing the two can you answer my question - if you removed all of the players over 18 from the Development Tour what does that do to the averages compared to whatever they were in the IOM youth final?

Oh, and I'm not reading it as a BDO kicking, I'm curious how you can even think to compare the two given the age ranges allowed for the competitors are completely different.

Agree wholeheartedly about "youth" at 24,  I only know of a few under 16,  our friend Lennon Cradock,  16 and av was 79.18,

JVT- 84.65
N Girvan- 81.25
Roelofs- 75

Although my son is 21 he had ( in his words ) a nightmare and hit 70.25 !!


There was actually a young Irish lad who hit over 100 in one event and I think av was 96 plus overall,

Again its not having a pop at the BDO or the event, was never my intention, and this is a forum for healthy discussion,
