Sounds to me like they just made up a spot so they can include her. This is not a surprise.

???  I am clueless of the issues. Was her position unearned?

The 32 highest-ranked players in the PDC Order of Merit are seeded and go straight to the second round in a fixed bracket.

The next 32 highest-ranked players from the PDC Pro Tour Order of Merit and another 32 qualifiers are then drawn against each other in the first round.

Are you suggesting she met none of these qualifications? "Order of Merit" sounds pretty general. 

 

And speaking of "Order of Merit"  (Look at the last entry.)

Secondary Orders of Merit[edit]

In addition to the main two-year Order of Merit, the PDC also operates secondary Orders of Merit for their different tours. These include the:

  • ProTour Order of Merit, which counts money earned in Players Championships and European Tour events over a 12-month rolling period. In addition to qualification for televised tournaments, this ranking determines the seedings for Pro Tour events.[3]
  • European Tour Order of Merit, which counts money earned in European Tour events during the calendar year. The top 32 on this ranking list comprise the qualifiers for the European Championship, all seeded, at the end of the year.[4]
  • Players Championship Order of Merit, which counts money earned in Player Championship events during the calendar year. The top 64 on this ranking list are the seeded qualifiers to the Players Championship Finals.[5]
  • Challenge Tour Order of Merit, which counts money earned on the Challenge Tour (by non Tour Card holders that participated in Q-School) during the calendar year. The top players at the end of the year qualify for the World Championship, UK Open, and receive Tour Cards.[6]
  • Development Tour Order of Merit, which counts money earned on the Development Tour (by Tour Card holders and non Tour Card holders alike, aged 16–23) during the calendar year. The top players at the end of the year qualify for the World Championship, UK Open, and receive Tour Cards.[7]
  • *Women's Series Order of Merit, which was introduced in 2021 after the first women's series events were introduced in 2020.[8] The tournament series qualifies two women to the Grand Slam and World Championship.[9]*

So, did she not get there on her own abilities?  (Just asking?)
