Justin van Tergouw will make his debut on the European Tour in Maastricht tomorrow, after beating world number 30 Vincent van der Voort in the final round of the Host Nation Qualifier this evening.
The 17-year-old, from Utrecht, won the BDO World Youth Championship at Lakeside in January, and entered the qualifiers for his home tournament, the Dutch Darts Masters, bidding for a spot in the 48-player field.
After edging past Rick Hofstra 6-5 in a last-leg decider, the teenager defeated Willy van de Wiel 6-4 to set up a clash with van der Voort for a spot in the first round on Friday.
Van Tergouw saw off his compatriot 6-2 to secure his debut on the European Tour this weekend, with a meeting with former BDO world champion Christian Kist awaiting him in the last 48 tomorrow.
As well as the Host Nation Qualifier, the European Qualifier has also been held this evening, with Ronny Huybrechts, Max Hopp, Rowby-John Rodriguez, Martin Schindler, John Michael, Rene Berndt, Nico Blum and Mike De Decker all qualifying.
