The Development Tour Order of Merit 'DTOoM' Table shows only prize money won on the PDC Unicorn Development Tour in the season.
Keane Barry and Berry van Peer won two-year PDC Tour Cards, while Barry and Ryan Meikle booked places at the 2020/21 World Championship as the 2020 PDC Unicorn Development Tour concluded in Barnsley.
Exciting Irish prospect Barry, 18, narrowly missed out on winning a Tour Card at Qualifying School in January but will compete on the PDC ProTour for the first time in 2021 and make his second World Championship appearance in December after finishing second on the final Development Tour Order of Merit.
A graduate of the Junior Darts Corporation system, Barry made his World Championship debut in December 2019, before returning to the Alexandra Palace stage days later to win the JDC’s Junior World Championship final.
Barry, who also became the youngest winner of the Tom Kirby Memorial Irish Matchplay in 2019, picked up his first two Development Tour titles across Saturday and Sunday to secure his place on the professional circuit.
Dutchman Van Peer, who has battled through dartitis to continue his playing career, finished third on the Development Tour Order of Merit to win back his PDC Tour Card, having previously competed on the circuit in 2016-17.
The 24-year-old has four Development Tour titles to his name spanning a five-year period and reached the last 16 of the 2017 Grand Slam of Darts. Englishman Meikle, a six-time Development Tour title winner, topped the final Order of Merit to ensure his World Championship return having made his Alexandra Palace debut at the 2019/20 event.
The 24-year-old, who reached the last 16 of the 2019 Players Championship Finals, was already assured of his PDC Tour Card for 2021, meaning Barry and Van Peer are this year’s two Tour Card winners.
