Kiwi darts player Cody Harris has failed to secure an automatic tour card on day two of the Professional Darts Corporation [PDC] Qualifying School in Wigan.

The Aucklander won his first round match against Andy Smith 5-1, but couldn't repeat the same form in the second, losing 5-1 to Tony Martin in the second round on Saturday (NZ time).

On day one of the event, Harris was eliminated in the third round of the event by Eddie Dootson

The 32-year-old is looking to become New Zealand's first professional darts player, competing against more than 600 competitors fighting for one of 33 two-year tour cards at the "Q-School".

The PDC gives darts players from around the world the chance to win a tour card to join the professional circuit at schools in Wigan, England or Hildesheim, Germany.

The father of five has two more days to try to earn a tour card with 27 more places still up for grabs.

Over the four day event there are eight tour cards guaranteed for Wigan, while four are allotted to the Hildesheim school. The remaining 21 will be determined by ranking points, which are earned with every win.

Dutchman Mario Robbe won the one tour card available in Germany on Saturday (NZ time), while Robert Owen and Alan Tabern claimed the two available tour cards up for grabs in Wigan.
