DYNAMIC Dawson Murschell could be the next Michael van Gerwen or Emporio Armani…thanks to MAPLE SYRUP! The Canadian new kid on the PDC block came through the ultra-tough Q School to get a tour card and is ready to launch a new chapter of his life in the UK.
But ‘Awesome Dawson’ has shown incredible initiative to get this far by starting a fashion label Finlay Bridge Outfitters to fund his darting dream.
Murschell, 22, revealed: “I started the company selling hoodies, beanies, sunglasses to get enough money to play darts.
“That has worked so far and got me a tour card now, so it’s been a good journey. I will now move to the UK from Canada in time for the UK Open.
“I will continue to run the company from the UK. My family are very supportive and I can still handle it online with help back home from my mum, brother and grandma.
“I’m not sure whether I’d want to be the next Michael van Gerwen or Armani. I want to be Dawson Murschell and darts is my dream and ambition. But I wouldn’t turn down being a success in darts or fashion to be honest.”
Murschell’s dream run into the PDC big time included a sensational win over James Wade in the US Masters in Las Vegas last year. The Medicine Hat, Alberta kid also admits that Canadian oche legends John Part and Jeff Smith are huge inspirations and helped him along the way – thanks to some homegrown mental strength.
He added: “Q School was very tough, the standard now is just incredible. The PDC Development and Challenge Tours are creating so many good young players.
