Darts star dubbed future world champ wins tour card back after hard 3 years

Darts prodigy Corey Cadby has won back his PDC tour card at Q-School nearly three years after he had to hand it back.

The Australian was once touted as a ‘future world champion’ after he overcame Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in 2016 and reached the final of the 2018 UK Open, losing to Gary Anderson 11-7.

However, he was forced to start all over again after Visa Issues and personal problems culminating with a huge battle against alcohol forced him to hand his hard-earned tour card back in 2020. Three very frustrating years after, Cadby looks to have jump-started his promising darts future.

He overcame Karel Sedlacek 6-2 in an explosive match in Kalkar, Germany to regain his tour card at European Q-School. The Aussie averaged 101 to overcome the Czech Republic ace and secure his tour card.

Candy even managed to show off his spirit, determination, and ability under pressure by overturning a two leg deficit to secure the victory. He won six out of the last seven legs to get back onto the PDC Tour.

The 27-year-old has certainly had to do it the hard way over the last few years. He burst onto the scene in explosive fashion when he ousted Taylor on his television debut in 2016.

His victory was even more spectacular, considering he was beaten by the 16-time world champion a week previously. Cadby’s reputation began to expand even further when he won the PDC World Youth Championship before taking a set off Joe Cullen at the 2017 World Championship.

A victory over then reigning world champion Rob Cross in a UK Open qualifier tournament final even prompted many darts fans to label him a future world champion. Comments such as "Corey Cadby is an absolute joke, future world champion" and "Anyone see a good reason why Corey Cadby won’t be world champion pretty soon?" soon followed his victories.

While he would have been hoping for greater accolades at the age of 27, nobody can fault the Aussie’s character to bounce back after three very frustrating years.
