A three-time UK Open qualifier, Edinburgh’s Andy Davidson is tipped for the top of Scottish Darts having made two Development Tour finals in 2019. Davidson is looking to further his progression by competing on the Challenge Tour in 2020.
After growing up watching the Lakeside World Championship on the BBC, Davidson attended his first tournament aged 18, losing to Frimley Green regular Gary Stone in the final. From there Davidson started playing county darts before progressing on to the PDC system.
Last 32 runs in his opening events in Coventry blossomed into event finals in 2015 and 2016, pushing him into the upper echelons of the order of merit.
Davidson qualified for the UK Open in 2016, recording a first round victory over Jan Dekker before seeing off Cristo Reyes in round two. He would eventually succumb to Darren Webster, but cashing the biggest cheque of his career with a last 64 run in Minehead.
He would make the long trip to Somerset in 2017 and then again in March 2020 after coming through the Development Tour order of merit. Unfortunately for Davidson he would run into an in form William Borland in round one.
