DARTS: Ward on oche for Unicorn climax
A LUCRATIVE set of prizes are on offer for Ben Ward this weekend as the PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour comes to a climax in Crawley.
The K2 Centre hosts the last three events – two today and one tomorrow – with top spot in the order of merit still very much in the Dorchester ace’s sights.
Ward, 24, pictured, sits second in the money list going into the two-day event and while retaining his place at the end of it would bring its own rewards, he is not content to settle for what he has.
Ross Smith currently leads the way on £2,200 with Ward on £1,975 following one win and two runner-up finishes in the three events last time out in Reading.
The order of merit champion on the Challenge Tour not only gets a place at the Grand Slam of Darts and World Championships but receives a two-year card for the Pro Tour and all his entry fees paid for in the first 12 months – other than a ticket to the Grand Slam, second place gets the same.
“My aim is to finish top,” said Ward. “I’m not going to put any pressure on myself, I’m just going to do what I have been doing, which has worked so far.
“I know I’ve got enough in my game to do it and, after the last one at Reading, people will be afraid of playing me and I’ve got to take advantage of that. It would be great if I could get a tour card and move up to the next level.”
