Adams Hits Perfection- Icons of Darts Sees Second 9 Darter.

Martin Adams struck the second nine-dart finish of the Icons of Darts League completing his win over former World Youth Champion James Hubbard. Adams has performed well, in the MODUS promoted remote darts event, and at the age of sixty-three showed he can still produce outstanding darts.

Three-time Lakeside World Champion Adams, joins Arron Monk who hit ‘the niner’ early in the league’s existence. His was the third overall in the current batch streamed tournaments with Luke Woodhouse also hitting ‘a perfect leg’ from his kitchen in Bewdley!

Wolfie went the traditional route hitting scores of 180, 180 & 141 (T20, T19, D12), it appears that this may have been his first recorded 9-dart finish!


Home Tour: Cross Progresses With No Fuss Win.

Rob Cross came out on top of Group Five of the Low6 Home Tour Play-Offs on Saturday night to reach the semi-finals.

Cross began the night with back-to-back victories over Sweden’s Daniel Larsson and Players Championship event winner Ryan Searle to take a commanding position at the top of the group.

Despite suffering defeat to Luke Woodhouse in the final game of the night, Cross won enough legs to ensure he ended the night on top.

Cross will return to Home Tour action on Thursday night for the second night of semi-final action, where he will be joined by the three group winners of the next three groups.

The Low6 Home Tour Play-Offs continue on Sunday night with Group Six, which will feature Joe Cullen, Chris Dobey, Jeff Smith and Martijn Kleermaker.

Wood You Believe It? Darts World Cover Star Reflects.

LUKE WOODHOUSE has made headlines all over the world…from his kitchen. The World No.57 is the biggest story of the PDC Home Tour so far after landing a perfect nine-dart leg in a win over double major winner Gerwyn Price.

DartsWorld Magazine May 2020 Cover

Woody, 31, was big news in all the national newspapers and even made headlines in the Washington Post – all from darts thrown next to his cooker!

Now the Darts World cover star for May is getting ready for the last 32 of the Home Tour against former World Champion Rob Cross, Ryan Searle, and Daniel Larsson in a week’s time (May 30). He admitted: “I was straight off on the second night so it happened quite quickly.

 “My set-up is in the kitchen, it’s the only place in the house where it’s sort of suitable, I’ve got quite a big kitchen, there’s an alcove bit. “On the night I played I had to keep the wife and two kids out of the way, so they were in the living room!

“The stream was actually running a little bit behind so they actually heard me hit the nine-darter before they saw it on their phone watching in the other room.“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.”

Bewdley battler Woody KO’d Michael Smith in the World Championship before losing out 4-2 to Dimtri Van den Bergh, suffering from a heavy cold. But now he hopes this latest tournament success can up his belief for greater success. He added: “Hopefully I can be the At Home champion of the world. It’ll be lovely if something positive comes out of it. “It will also be good if it gives me a kick start and pushes my confidence up even further. 

“Lockdown’s not been too bad, I get to spend more time with the family than I usually would if I was travelling up and down the country. “We’ve been doing a bit of homeschooling with the kids, plenty to do even though we have been stuck indoors.”

Cover Shots: Woodhouse Makes Cover Of May’s Limited Edition!

DartsWorld Magazine May 2020 Cover
DartsWorld Magazine May 2020 Cover

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!

The latest edition of Darts World is digitally available here. You can also get access to over 50 copies of the magazine free of charge with our Darts World/Red Dragon Freemium offer!

Home Tour II – Woodhouse Hits First Kitchen TV 9-Darter!

Luke Woodhouse landed a brilliant nine-darter and claimed victory in the Unibet Home Tour’s Group Two on a memorable Saturday night for the internet-streamed event.

Luke Woodhouse has been knocking on the door for
a while, could the PDC Home Tour be his key?

Bewdley’s Woodhouse, who made his breakthrough last year, achieved a moment of perfection during a superb 5-0 win over world number three Gerwyn Price during his three games on the second night of the Home Tour.

Woodhouse was leading 3-0 as he scored back-to-back 177s against Price, before checking out 147 to record the first nine-darter in competition against an opponent from their respective homes.

Embedded video

Woodhouse went on to complete a 5-0 win over Price with an average of almost 114, with 5-2 wins over Ted Evetts and Rowby-John Rodriguez giving him the Group Two victory.

Reigning Grand Slam of Darts champion Price followed World Champion Peter Wright – who competed in Friday’s Group One – in finishing in second place with two wins on the night.

Price had opened proceedings by defeating Austria’s Rodriguez 5-2, and repeated that scoreline to see off Evetts, ending the night with a 130 checkout and a 102 average.

Evetts was a 5-3 winner over Rodriguez in their tie as he finished in third spot, with the Austrian youngster finishing bottom on the night.

The Unibet Home Tour continues on Sunday night with Group Three, which sees Dave Chisnall, Jan Dekker, Jonathan Worsley and Scott Waites competing in the third of 32 nights of action.

The Unibet Home Tour can be watched live and free through PDCTV for registered users (new users can sign up for FREE here), as well as through bookmakers’ websites and international broadcasters.

World Championships – Night Three Round Up.

Michael Smith crashed out of the William Hill World Championship after a fine display from newcomer Luke Woodhouse condemned last year’s runner-up to an early exit, while Mikuru Suzuki came agonisingly close to being the first female player to taste victory at Alexandra Palace.

ROUND2: MICHAEL SMITH V LUKE WOODHOUSE Michael SMITH IN ACTION

Sunday’s double session also saw ninth seed Ian White tumble out of the tournament with defeat to Darius Labanaukas on a dramatic day of darts. 

Smith never recovered from a slow start against emerging talent Woodhouse, who followed up Saturday’s victory over Paul Lim with another impressive performance to defeat the number four seed 3-1 in their second round meeting.

“I managed to regain my composure and get the job done,” said Woodhouse, who missed six darts to win the match in straight sets.

“I was in a bit of a haze after missing the chance to win the third set but I kept calm and my confidence got me through.

“I’ve been working hard and it is showing and I really feel at home on the big stage now.” 

Woodhouse won the first two sets 3-1 before coming back from two legs behind in the third, only to squander half-a-dozen match darts.

Smith missed two darts to take the match to a deciding set and Woodhouse denied him that chance when he cleaned up 80 to seal victory. 

Earlier in the night, Japan’s Suzuki almost completed an incredible comeback against James Richardson, only for Richardson to dash her hopes in an exciting affair.

The Lakeside Women’s Champion missed four darts to take the first set – in which she produced a fabulous 151 checkout – but Richardson seemingly took control when he led by two sets and two legs. 

Suzuki stormed back, winning six of the next seven legs to level up the match.

She missed two darts to go two legs ahead in the decider but a 101 checkout forced a sudden-death leg, which Richardson won on tops with Suzuki waiting on 36.

“It was tough to lose but I really enjoyed it,” said Suzuki.

“I was really unlucky but next time I think I will win. Everybody was cheering me on and that made me really happy.

“I’ll keep trying and I will be back.”

White was left stunned by Labanauskas who earned a 3-1 victory against the world number nine to reach round three.

White took out 136 to take the first set to a fifth leg, which he lost before levelling the match by winning brilliant second set 3-0 with an average of over 107.

Labanauskas, who had beaten Matthew Edgar on Saturday, edged the third set 3-2 thanks to a clinical 74 checkout.

The Lithuanian, who famously knocked out Raymond van Barneveld at the same stage last year, added White to his list of scalps by winning the fourth set 3-1. 

Kyle Anderson survived a huge scare as he came from two sets behind against Chinese youngster Xiaochen Zong.

Australian Anderson struggled after a strong start from his opponent, who took the first set in a decider before winning set two 3-1.

Anderson fired back, taking the following two sets 3-1 to force a decider – which he won by the same margin, sealing the victory on double one. 

“I thought I was going out,” admitted Anderson, who will face Steve Beaton on Thursday.

“I feel like I had a lot of luck with the doubles he missed. My form has been absolutely abysmal coming into this tournament.

“I was on the stage thinking about booking a flight to Australia to spend Christmas with my family but somehow I got back into it and into the next round.”

There was no such drama for Brendan Dolan, who eased past India’s Nitin Kumar in straight sets.

The Northern Irishman, who picked up two ranking titles in 2019, won the decisive fifth leg in set one and never looked back as he claimed a routine win to progress.

“I kept my composure at the right times,” said Dolan, who will meet Gary Anderson in round two.

“I’ve got a lot of belief in my game now – I’ve got concrete evidence behind me that I’m good enough to win on the tour again and to beat the best.

“I’m looking forward to playing Gary. I don’t know where his game is but I know where mine is and after today I think I have an advantage.” 

North American Darts Champion Danny Baggish earned a debut victory over Andy Boulton, who twice led by a set but failed to hold on in a tight affair.

The first four sets all went down to a fifth leg before Baggish clinched the decider 3-1 to reach round two. 

Ross Smith was caught cold by emerging Irish ace Ciaran Teehan, who completed a 3-0 victory on his World Championship debut. 

The 20-year-old, who won a Challenge Tour title earlier this year, produced a brilliant 11-darter to win the fifth leg in set one.

An equally crucial 70 checkout in the second set decider saw him double his lead – and he went on to seal an impressive win by clinching the third set 3-1. 

Spain’s Jose Justicia enjoyed a routine victory over a disappointing Arron Monk, who went down in straight sets in round one. 

The William Hill World Championship continues on Monday evening with three first round ties and second round meeting between Dolan and two-time World Champion Gary Anderson. 

Day Four will be broadcast live on the Sky Sports Darts channel and through NOW TV in the UK, on PDCTV-HD for Rest of the World Subscribers and through the PDC’s worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and RTL7.

Woodhouse Triumphs as Wright Bows Out – Player Championship Finals Under Way.

Luke Woodhouse enjoyed a dream big-stage debut at the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals with a brilliant 6-5 win over Daryl Gurney as the tournament began in Minehead on Friday, where Peter Wright was also knocked out.

Worcestershire’s Woodhouse, 31, produced the most memorable display of his career as he came from 3-1 and 5-3 down to see off Gurney, who missed two match darts in leg nine before watching on as his opponent took out 71 in the decider.

A two-time UK Open qualifier previously, Woodhouse was appearing in front of the TV cameras for the first time but was left celebrating a breakthrough moment against the world number six.

“I’m lost for words – I’m so happy,” said Woodhouse, ranked 71st on the PDC Order of Merit. “It’s massive for me. It was daunting and it took me a couple of legs to get into the game.

“I just wanted to stick in there with him and hope that if he missed a few doubles I could take my chance, and that’s what happened. He didn’t play as well as he usually does and I took advantage of that.

“I don’t fear anybody and on my day, if I click, I really think I can beat anybody. It’s amazing to win my first game on TV – it was almost an out-of-body experience!”

Woodhouse’s win means that he now faces Gabriel Clemens in round two on Saturday afternoon, after the German thrower saw off Mark McGeeney 6-4.

World number seven Wright, meanwhile, also paid for missing match darts as he let a 5-3 lead slip against James Wilson before the Huddersfield ace took the deciding leg.

Wilson will now meet Chris Dobey, who landed a 164 checkout in a comfortable 6-1 win over Spain’s Cristo Reyes.

Michael van Gerwen landed a 170 checkout but had to overcome a scare from Luke Humphries before taking a 6-3 win to open his challenge for a fifth Players Championship Finals title.

Van Gerwen took out the maximum finish on his way to a 4-0 lead, only for Humphries to hit back to 4-3 – but the World Youth Championship finalist crucially missed two darts to level.

The World Champion capitalised to move 5-3 up before sealing victory with a 95 finish which featured two double 19s, ending the game with an average just above 100.

“It wasn’t my best performance but I had some nice finishes in there and a win is a win,” said Van Gerwen. “I did some good things early on but I wasn’t 100 percent focused, so I have to concentrate on myself and play better in the next game.”

Van Gerwen now resumes his rivalry with Adrian Lewis, who came from 6-4 down to win 6-4 against Josh Payne in their first-round tie.

Grand Slam of Darts winner Gerwyn Price – the number one seed for this event – averaged 102 in a strong showing as he defeated Mickey Mansell 6-3, and he now plays Keegan Brown, after the former World Youth Champion saw off Andy Boulton by the same scoreline.

PIC LAWRENCE LUSTIG ROUND 1 GERWYN PRICE V MICKEY MANSELL

Five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld began his penultimate tournament before retirement with a superb 99 average as he overcame UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall 6-2.

“My form is there and I can do better than this but I feel confident,” said the veteran Dutchman. “Nathan has had a great year so I was warned and he’s a phenomenal player but I play the board.

PIC LAWRENCE LUSTIG
ROUND 1 NATHAN ASPINALL V RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD

“There’s no pressure on me and every single round is a bonus, so I just want to play as well as I can. I’m practising well and I believe in myself and everyone knows that if I play my game I can beat anyone in the world.”

Van Barneveld now meets Joe Cullen, who swept past Australia’s Kyle Anderson with a 6-2 victory which was sealed with a 121 finish.

World number two Rob Cross dropped just two legs as he defeated Ron Meulenkamp to set up a second round tie with Jamie Hughes, who was a 6-3 winner against another Dutchman, Jermaine Wattimena.

Second seed James Wade defied two ton-plus finishes from Ted Evetts before taking out 104 to seal a 6-4 win over the youngster, and the left-hander now plays Ricky Evans after the Kettering ace’s narrow 6-5 defeat of Steve Beaton.

World Championship finalist Michael Smith enjoyed a 6-1 win over Martin Schindler and now plays Brendan Dolan, who won by the same scoreline against Ross Smith in their first round tie.

Simon Whitlock produced a rousing comeback from 3-0 down to defeat Dutch prospect Jeffrey de Zwaan, who made a sensational start to their first-round contest.

However, Whitlock finished 88 and 148 in successive legs to begin his fightback, before edging to a 6-5 win in a deciding leg.

Whitlock’s second-round opponent, John Henderson, was another narrow winner as he survived missed match darts from Ryan Joyce, who was unable to convert three chances for victory in the deciding leg of their clash.

Mensur Suljovic came from 5-3 down to deny Kim Huybrechts in a decider, and the Austrian now plays Dutchman Danny Noppert, who won four straight legs from 5-2 down against Ryan Searle before taking the victory.

Suffolk left-hander Ryan Meikle enjoyed the biggest win of his young career by whitewashing Jonny Clayton, the 2017 Players Championship Finals runner-up, in an impressive victory.

The four-time Development Tour event winner’s second-round opponent will be Darius Labanauskas, with the Lithuanian having edged out Harry Ward 6-5 in their opener.

Dave Chisnall hit back from 2-1 down to reel off five straight legs in his 6-2 win over Matthew Edgar and he now plays Mervyn King, who averaged 100 in his narrow 6-5 success over Justin Pipe.

Portugal’s Jose De Sousa, a two-time Players Championship event winner in 2019, enjoyed a winning debut by defeating James Richardson 6-3, and he now plays Stephen Bunting after the St Helens ace’s 6-2 win over Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Lakeside Champion Glen Durrant overcame Scott Baker 6-2 to set up a tie with Max Hopp, who defied a 170 finish from Jelle Klaasen in a 6-3 victory.

Poland’s Krzysztof Ratajski punished Steve Lennon for 16 missed doubles in a 6-1 win which sets up a tie with another Irish ace, William O’Connor, after the World Cup finalist defeated Steve West 6-4.

Ian White was a 6-4 winner against South Africa’s Devon Petersen and now plays Dutchman Vincent van der Voort, who won by the same margin against former World Youth Champion Arron Monk.

Saturday’s play at the Butlin’s Minehead Resort sees the second round and third round split across two sessions, before the £500,000 tournament concludes on Sunday.
