his careers taken a step back Monique id say laregely because of this delay in him getting onto the tour when he was clearly ready a few years ago when hed earned the right to be there.
hes kinda been in limbo till he turned 16 but now the time has come and its a 100% correct decision.
Look at the Wildcards last year, Einslie, Figuerido and Reanne. they werent picked purely on merit, there were other reasons. Wildcards are normally WILD and risky, but Brecel is a level above these ones and his selection is the right choice.
or he could have been struggling in the lower range of the pros and fallen off tour already due to the ranking system.
now is a better time to turn pro than in the 6 or 7 ranking tournament season walker had.
but he should go through qualifying school the experience there would benefit him surely and if he cant gain one of the 12 spots there he would start to learn whats needed to succeed at snooker.
