The latest edition of Darts World is out now and available exclusively in our ‘Freemium Archive’.
Issue number 569 features Luke Woodhouse on its cover. Much of the magazine is a tribute to how darts has stepped up, and adapted, during these Covid-19 dominated times.
The Bewdley thrower hit the first 9-Darter of the Unibet Home Tour as the PDC launched the ‘darting from home’ league! Luke had joined a select band of ‘9 Dart’ history makers. Whether it’s John Lowe’s first televised perfect leg, Paul Lim’s first World Championship or the later ‘firsts’ featuring Taylor, Dolan, Wade & Thornton, Woodhouse’s effort gave the new event a did-you-see-it moment and generated a great deal of interest.
Talking to Phil Lanning recently it’s fair to say Luke seemed slightly stunned:
“To be honest when I did it, I didn’t think too much about it. As far as I’m concerned I’m just throwing darts at home in the kitchen. I didn’t know how many people would be watching.
“It’s gone a bit crazy. It’s been great that the fans have been able to watch some live darts, it’s brilliant and for the players as well to be doing something half competitive.”
We are sure that joining players such as Leighton Rees, Eric Bristow, Phil Taylor and MVG on the front cover of the longest-running darts magazine will be something that Luke will appreciate in years to come!
