Who is defending what this pro tour weekend?

The action at the start of the PDC season comes thick and fast. This weekend the players are once again heading to Wigan for a double header of pro tour events.

Players Championship events 5 and 6 are on the calendar with the prize money counting towards the Pro Tour Order of Merit and the Players Championship order of merit.

Who is defending what this pro tour weekend

With a massive 75000 pounds of prize money on offer on each of the two days lets take a look at who is defending what this pro tour weekend.

As you can see from the table below Players championship events 5 and 6 of 2019 were both won by Gerwyn Price and as such he is defending 20000 on the pro tour order of merit.

While this is a large chunk of prize money for players further down the Pro Tour order of merit, if Gerwyn doesn’t cash at all this weekend he can realistically only drop down 3 or 4 players from his current ranking of third.

With Michael van Gerwen having skipped events 5 and 6 last year this weekend is a great opportunity for him to extend his lead at the top of the rankings.
