Younger brother to fellow Austrian prospects, Rowby John and Roxy James, teenage sensation Rusty Jake has made a fantastic start to his darting career in both junior and open company.
Having made history by making it to the second round of the Austrian Open aged just 16 in 2017, Rusty went on to claim the JDC World of Darts Championship at the Alexandra Palace in December 2017. Rusty entered European qualifying school in 2018. His best result was getting to the semi final on day three. Only one player per day got an automatic PDC tour card in the European qualifying school and although Rusty came 10th in the PDC European qualifying school Order of Merit, only the top six in the PDC European qualifying school Order of Merit received a tour card.
