Kelly Takes Opening PDC NACT Title
WAYNE KELLY defeated Bernie Miller 6-2 to win the opening event of the PDC North American Championship Tour in Newfoundland.
Local star Kelly scooped the $2,200 first prize in the first of eight NACT events which will be played this year, coming through more than 80 players to take the title in his home town of St John's.
His triumphs on the day included a win over top Canadian youngster Shaun Narain in the last 16 and a semi-final victory over 2012 NACT Order of Merit winner Darin Young, before he defeated Ontario's Miller in the final.
Miller defeated PDC Tour Card holder Ken MacNeil in the semi-finals and also saw off former World Matchplay champion Larry Butler as he claimed the $1,400 runner-up prize.
The next PDC NACT event will be held on July 14 at the Ambassador Conference Resort in Kingston, Ontario as part of the Kingston Open weekend.
Further events will be held on July 20-21 in Chicago, August 25 in London, Ontario, September 8 in Atlantic City and November 2-3 in Sacramento. For full details, visit www.bullseyenews.com.
