AUSTRIAN youngster Rowby-John has made a big impact on the circuit in a short space of time, and is one of four darting brothers hoping to enjoy successful careers in the sport.

Having competed in PDC youth events in 2013, where he won his first title, Rodriguez won a Tour Card at the 2014 PDC Qualifying School to secure his spot on the circuit and enjoyed immediate success by qualfiying for the UK Open and reaching the World Youth Championship final.

He was denied the World Youth Championship title by Keegan Brown as Rodriguez lost out 6-4, but he went on to team up with Mensur Suljovic to represent Austria in the World Cup of Darts and competed in the European Championship, Grand Slam of Darts and World Championship to round off a fine debut year on the circuit.

A Development Tour event winner in 2015, his progression continued as he secured further big-stage experience which included a spot in the World Series of Darts Finals and a second World Championship appearance, while he reached three further Development Tour finals in 2016 and the World Cup of Darts quarter-finals in both 2016 and 2017.
