In October, Monk reached the semi-finals of a PDC event for the first time at the 13th Players Championship of the year. He defeated the likes of Dennis Priestley, Roland Scholten and Mark Webster, all of whom have won major titles in the past, before losing 6–1 to Michael van Gerwen. Monk then saw off John Part, Vincent van der Voort and Andy Hamilton, to make the quarter finals of the firth European Tour Event of the year, the Dutch Darts Masters. Monk faced Paul Nicholson and lost 6–1 with an average of just 69.39. Monk qualified for the 2012 Grand Slam of Darts by finishing top of the PDC Unicorn Youth Tour Order of Merit. He won two of his three group games to finish second in the table and qualify for the last 16 of a major tournament for the first time. He played Dean Winstanley and was beaten 10–5.

Monk reached his second World Championship by finishing 35th on the 2012 ProTour Order of Merit, claiming the fifth of sixteen spots that were awarded to non-qualified players. He lost 3–0 to Peter Wright in the first round. Monk was ranked world number 45 after the event. At the UK Masters he defeated Ian White and Mark Walsh both 6–4, before missing one match dart in the third round against Robert Thornton to lose 6–5. He was beaten 6–4 by Ricky Evans in the semi-finals of the Under-21 World Championship, and lost 5–2 to Gaz Cousins in the second round of the UK Open.
