Jeffrey de Zwaan has qualified for the second round of the World Grand Prix on Sunday. The Dutch darter didn't have too much trouble with Steven Beaton in Dublin.
The 23-year-old De Zwaan stood in the Citywest Convention Center only one leg against the 32-year-old Beaton and won 2-0 in sets.
'The Black Cobra' came to an average of 88.67 points per three arrows. The averages are normally somewhat lower at the World Grand Prix, because the darters have to start and end each leg with a double.
De Zwaan may face Michael van Gerwen in the second round of the prestigious World Grand Prix. The number one in the world - who won the tournament in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 - will play against Englishman Jamie Hughes later in the first round on Sunday evening.
Vincent van der Voort (against Nathan Aspinall), Jermaine Wattimena (against Adrian Lewis) and Danny Noppert (against Daryl Gurney) will play in Ireland for the first time on Monday.
Raymond van Barneveld did not qualify for the World Grand Prix and is not participating in the tournament for the first time since 2005.
