Justin van Tergouw is a very much talked about young talent and rightfully so. The 17-year old has been in some terrific form over the last couple of year it’s fair to say as he has dominated the youth game both in the Netherlandsand all across Europe as he has picked up nearly every youth title thats there to be won. He won the German Open in 2016 in some style as he took on Rusty-Jake Rodriguez, Van Tergouw took out a sensational 147 finish to pick up the title, since that moment many people have been tipping the youngster to make it to the top. Van Tergouw’s next test came as he made his first appearance in a PDC event as he participated in his first ever Development tour event in Wigan. The youngster blown away the opposition throughout the day as he went on to reach the final and despite only just losing out 5-4 to Dean Reynolds in the final, he really shown what potential he has. Just two months later, Van Tergouw was crowned the Lakeside World youth Champion after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Scotland’s Nathan Girvan. In early 2017 Van Tergouw had to take a three-month break from the sport after sustaining a shoulder injury. The injury came just after participating in the first four Development Tour events in 2017. The rest seemed to do Van Tergouw some good as he returned by finding some good form as he reached back-to-back Semi-Finals at PDC’s Development Tour events 11 & 12 in Germany. The youngster competed at the Belgium Masters recently at a senior level as he went on to reach the Quarter-Finals which included two victories over Darryl Fitton within 24 hours. The progression of the 17-year old stepped up another level ashe qualified for the Dutch Darts Masters in Maastricht after he came through the host nation qualifiers on Thursday evening after victories over Rick Hofstra, Willy van de Wiel and a terrific 6-2 win over Vincent van der Voort to clinch qualification for the European Tour event. In Van Tergouw’s Euro Tour debut, he took on fellow countryman Christian Kist in what was an intense battle as the Utrecht-based star shown over 6,000 darts-crazed fans just what the hype was all about as he pushed Kist all the way. Despite losing out 6-5, he produced some world-class darts and it will definitely not be the last time that we see the Dutch ace on the big stage that’s for sure.
