Lauby secures World Championship return as US season concludes

Danny Lauby has booked his place in the 2021/22 William Hill World Darts Championship following the conclusion of the 2021 Championship Darts Corporation's US Tour.

Lauby finished top of the CDC US Tour Final Standings, securing him a return to Alexandra Palace where he made his debut in December 2020, narrowly losing 3-2 to Ryan Searle.

Lauby's two event victories and runner-up place across the opening three events were enough to keep him top on 60 points ahead of Leonard Gates who finished second with 54.

Last weekend saw US Tour Events Four to Six take place in Philadelphia as Adam Sevada, Seth Steffano and Kevin Luke picked up a title each.

Subsequently, the trio all finished in the top eight qualifying places for the 2021 CDC Continental Cup, taking place on November 20 in New York City.

Veteran Gary Mawson, US World Cup representative Chuck Puleo and Dutch-American Jules van Dongen also secured top eight finishes.
