Preston Ridd from New Zealand qualified over the New Zealand ranking for the PDC World Championship 2011.
Ridd for long years played BDO/WDF tournament, he won the New Zealand Open several times and took part in the Oceanic Masters. As often as it is possible for him he plays tournaments in Australia as well - he even played one time Phil Taylor there (and lost).
Ridd always dreamed to become a professional player in England - he's got a British passport - but he didn't feel confident enough to give it a try.
