Coral UK Open Field Confirmed

February 12 2017

THE field for the Coral UK Open has been confirmed following the conclusion of the six UK Open Qualifiers for professionals and the Rileys Amateur Qualifiers.

A total of 128 players will compete in the 2017 Coral UK Open TV Finals at the Butlins Minehead Resort from March 3-5, with coverage live on ITV4 and play simultaneously across eight stages in the early rounds.

The six UK Open Qualifiers for PDPA members each featured £60,000 in prize money, with Peter Wright winning three of the tournaments, Simon Whitlock claiming a double and Michael van Gerwen securing one victory.

The series also saw Van Gerwen hit two nine-dart finishes in one match during Qualifier Four, while Ted Evetts, Darren Webster, Ronny Huybrechts and Christian Kist also achieved perfect legs.

Following the six UK Open Qualifiers, the top 96 players from the UK Open Order of Merit progress to compete in Minehead, alongside 32 Rileys Amateur Qualifiers who won through from knockouts held in Rileys Sports Bars across four weekends.

The players ranked 65-96 plus the Rileys Amateur Qualifiers enter at the first round stage in Minehead, with the players ranked 33-64 entering in the second round and the top 32 ranked players entering in the third round.

The draw - which is an open draw featuring no seedings - will be announced at www.pdc.tv in due course.
