Player Championship Pro Tour Events 1&2
After the UK Open, it’s now time for heads down and back to work on’ the floor’, as Dean joins the other 127 tour card holders on the PDC ProTour in Barnsley, for two floor tournament events.
This is where the main work is put in for the year, the many floor events behind closed doors across England. There’s no easy games, with every player earning the tour card to be there.

Deano takes out many class players to make his first ever PDC pro tour final, and it’s against the worlds number 1, MvG! Both average about 95 in the final, but it’s MvG who wins – so Dean will have to wait for his maiden PDC win. Still a fantastic weekend, with £5,000 added to Dean’s rankings today.
