Davis may be offered tour wild card
18 Apr 2014 09:09
Steve Davis could be spared relegation from snooker's professional tour after Barry Hearn revealed Davis, and Jimmy White, may be offered tour wild cards.
Six-time world champion Davis lost early in qualifying for this year's World Championship, which begins on Saturday, and fell outside the top 64 in the money list, meaning he is due to drop out of the paid ranks.
Davis has vowed to win back his place, initially via the qualifying school next month when tour cards are up for grabs.
But Hearn, who has always insisted snooker should be a meritocracy under his reign as World Snooker chairman, could authorise a move to give Davis an exemption.
White, who also failed to qualify for the World Championship, could join Davis in dropping out of the top 64, depending on results of others at the Crucible. He too could be handed a wild card.
