About Jamie

BDO

‘Yozza’ Jamie Hughes began his career on the British Darts Organisation (BDO) tour back in 2010.

In terms of accolades in the BDO, Hughes claimed the Gwynedd Open back in 2013. That victory in Wales, gave Hughes a degree of confidence as he reached several Semi-Finals in Belgium, and the Scottish Open final.

2014 was most certainly Hughes’ breakthrough year in the BDO. The Tipton-based star picked up the Antwerp Open title, which was closely followed by a huge win at the Zuiderduin Masters in the Netherlands, picking up a cool £5000.

Hughes ended the year well with a fantastic run to the final at the World Masters, just losing out to Welshman Martin Phillips.

Hughes went on to enjoy plenty of success in the BDO in terms of accolades. With wins at the Romanian Classic (twice), British Pentathlon, Swedish Open, WDF World Cup, Jersey Classic, WDF Europe Cup, Isle of Man Classic, and the British Classic.

In January 2018, on the back of a first-round defeat to Michael Unterbuchner at Lakeside, Hughes tried his luck at PDC Qualifying School.

Unfortunately for Hughes, he was unsuccessful in securing a tour card. It was something that frustrated Hughes as he played on the PDC Challenge Tour.

Hughes managed to qualify for the UK Open after reaching the Quarter-Finals in the qualifiers, Hughes enjoyed a decent run to the last 32 at Minehead.

Hughes enjoyed a successful spell on the Challenge Tour, winning one event with some impressive performances. In terms of the European Tour, Hughes qualified for the European Darts Open.

In qualifying for the event, Hughes recorded a spectacular 125.25 in a 6-0 win over Robbie Green.

In 2019, we really started to see just what Jamie Hughes is capable of. The Tipton ace secured his tour card on the opening day at PDC Q-School. Hughes recorded some stratospheric number en route, with three averages in the 109 region.

PDC

Hughes went on a qualifying spree in terms of the European Tour, qualifying for nine Euro Tour events. Hughes enjoyed a great run at the UK Open as he reached the last 32, only just losing out to Gerwyn Price in a contentious battle.

In terms of his performances on the Euro Tour, Hughes reached the Semi-Finals at the European Darts Grand Prix in May as ‘Yozza’ became a regular name in latter end of Pro Tour events.

At the end of June, Hughes sensationally picked up his first senior PDC win as he won the Czech Darts Open in Prague. The event was the last event prior to the cut-off for the World Matchplay.

Hughes secured wins over Devon Petersen, Adrian Lewis, Ron Meulenkamp, Ian White, Simon Whitlock and Stephen Bunting en route to clinching the £25,000 first prize, and with it, qualification for the World Matchplay.

At the World Matchplay in Blackpool at the historic Winter Gardens venue, Hughes came up against Michael Smith. ‘Yozza’ raced out of the blocks as he raced into a 4-1 lead, but Smith upped the ante as he secured a 10-7 win.

It was an impressive debut from Hughes, as he secured his place in the majority of the remaining televised events in 2019.
