Jason Brandon, JT Davis and Jake Macmillan are the final three players to qualify for the 2023 bet365 US Darts Masters, with the 16-player field now confirmed for June’s New York event.
American duo Brandon and Davis each won one of last weekend’s two North American qualification events, while Canada’s Macmillan qualified via the Qualifiers Order of Merit.
All three players will make their televised debuts at the US Darts Masters, which will take place from June 2-3 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York.
Last weekend saw two qualifying events take place in Brownsburg, Indiana as North America’s top talents battled it out for coveted places in the World Series of Darts event.
Brandon, 48, from Tennessee, averaged 95.81 in a 5-1 defeat of Macmillan in the Qualifier One final, having defeated 2019 North American Championship winner Danny Baggish 5-4 in the semi-finals.
Qualifier Two saw Davis defeat Elliot Milk 5-2 in the final, having overcome veteran duo Larry Butler and Gary Mawson in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively.
Alongside the US Darts Masters, the bet365 North American Championship will also be staged in New York, as the eight North American competitors face off for that title and a spot in the World Darts Championship.
Leonard Gates won last year’s North American Championship, defeating Baggish in the final.
The US Darts Masters will be broadcast live on ITV4 in the UK, through the PDC’s worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and Viaplay, and on PDCTV (excluding subscribers based in the UK, Germany, Austria & Switzerland).
