BAY CITY, MI — Shelti/Radikal USA has announced its sponsorship of Darin Young as a professional player. The company notes that he is one of the most accomplished current U.S. dart players.
Born in Pontiac MI, Young grew up in White Haven, PA, and now resides in Mountain Top, PA. He travels the world, making darts a primary occupation. His most recent accomplishment was winning his 6th American Darts Organization national title in Stamford, CT, in August.
At this writing, Young is in Sacramento, CA, playing the final two events on the Professional Darts Corp.'s DC North American Championship Tour. He is at the top of the PDC's North American Order of Merit. The Tour wraps up with the third New World Dart Series in New Orleans from Nov. 22 through 24. If he can retain his No. 1 position, he will earn a spot in the PDC World Darts Championships in London, England, in December. This would be his eighth appearance in the PDC World Championships.
