Career[edit]

van Dijk has yet to play in the BDO World Darts Championship. He reached the last 32 of the 2003 Winmau World Masters, beating former world champion Tony David in the first round, but lost to Martin Atkins. In 2005, he won the WDF World Cup, beating Per Laursen in the final. He followed this however with a very disappointing first round exit at the World Masters, losing to unknown Swede Bo Larsson. Since then his form has declined, losing in the Last 32 Group Stage of the 2006 International Darts League and the first round of the World Masters, though he lost to future World Champion Mark Webster.

In April 2007, van Dijk played in the PDC Open Holland Masters, reaching the last 32 and earning £150. He played in another PDC ranked tournament in Holland, playing in two PDPA Players Championship in Eindhoven but only managed to win £75. Despite these appearances, van Dijk has not yet applied for PDPA membership and remains a WDF/BDO player. He attempted to qualify for 2009 BDO World Darts Championship but was not successful. In 2009 he reached the semi-finals of the unranked Vonderke Masters and then reached the last 16 of the Dutch Open. He failed to qualify for the 2010 BDO World Darts Championship and suffered a first round exit in the 2009 World Masters. He then played in three PDC events in Holland and Germany but didn't earn any money in the three events.
