Mark McGeeney qualifies for the WSDT Masters. The former BDO World Darts Champion runner-up has booked a place in the World Senior Darts Tours Masters and will play his darting idol Phil 'The Power' Taylor in the tournament's opening round.
The Gladiator has been trying different stems a flight with his Unicorn made darts. His new setup features a longer shaft and a pear-shaped flight. Mark said the new setup had improved his game, and he can't wait to play Phil.

A Return to the PDC Q-School in 2023
Mark returned to the PDC Q-School in January 2023. He won through to the final stages but narrowly missed out on winning a tour card for the 2023/4 season. A further round win or a slightly greater leg difference would have seen Mark back in the PDC. Unfortunately, he missed out by two places.
Mark will continue in the Winmau Challenge tour and the Modus Super Series. Further details will be announced later in the year.
A Return to the PDC Q-School in 2022
Mark, unfortunately, lost his tour card at the end of 2021 and will return to the PDC Q-School in February 2022, attempting to win it back.
The PDC has 128 player tour cards held by the best dart players in the world. However, each year, players who have held a tour card for two years or longer that do not feature in the top half of the group lose their card and have to return to Qualifying School to win back one of the available cards. Mark held his tour card for three years. Despite the early success and making it to the PDC World Championships in 2018 and Players Championships, COVID, and other restrictions that all players have suffered, he hasn’t been kind to the Gladiator.
We all hope to see Mark back on the PDC players circuit next year.
PDC Tour Card
Mark is on the brink of losing his PDC Tour Card. Although he has had many tough battles in the PDC Player’s Championships, Mark has been narrowly defeated in the early rounds of most of the tour. Signs of brilliance have been unfortunately followed with missed doubles costing him dearly.
Mark has one last chance to qualify for the World Darts Championships at the end of November. If he fails, Mark will be heading back to Q-School in February 2022.
All the best, Mark, lets hope your fortunes change for the better.
Mark retained his tour card in 2021 and continues to rise up the PDC Order of Merit table.
Mark made the 2021 PDC Order of Merit cut after a difficult 2020. Market, a key worker, was unable to take part in the home tour events in 2020 and struggled to maintain his form that he showed in in 2019. Harry Ward decided to call it a day playing on the PDC circuit (for now), which allowed Mark to make the 2021 cut.
Mark is determined not to sail too close to the wire in 2021 and a return to form should see the Gladiator move up the ranking table.
