DARIN YOUNG has secured qualification for the William Hill World Darts Championship through the CDC rankings in North America.

Top left-hander Young will make his tenth World Championship appearance in December after securing the top American spot in the CDC Order of Merit.

Young took victory in Saturday's Event Nine as the year's fifth weekend began in Philadelphia, seeing off Canada's Jim Long 6-3 in the final.

The win was Young's third of 2019, as he hit back from 3-2 down to reel off four successive legs in securing the titles.

North American Championship winner Danny Baggish lost out to Lauby in the last 16, having achieved a CDC record average of 112.2 in the last 32 in a spectacular 5-0 win over three-time World Champion John Part.

Sunday sees the CDC's regular season end with Event Ten in Philadelphia. The top 16 players from the final Order of Merit will qualify to compete in the CDC Continental Cup, presented by Cosmo Darts, in New York on October 19.

The Continental Cup will be held at the K of C Council Hall #3701 in Woodside, New York, and will be the first ticketed spectator event being staged by the CDC, with the first round in the afternoon from 1200 USET and the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final in the evening session from 1800.

Tickets begin from just $10. To purchase, please visit www.ticketsource.us/champdarts.
