JAMES joined the PDC Pro Tour in 2011, and soon caused one of the biggest upsets in the history of the PDC World Championship by beating five-time World Champion, Raymond van Barneveld, 3–0 in the first round of the 2012 Championship.

The Rushden thrower had to win back his tour card in at Q School in 2016, and has since performed well on the European Tour and ProTour.

In 2017 he played in the quarter-finals of a Players Championship event, before reaching the last 16 of the 2018 World Championship.
