World Darts Championships 2018

PDC World Darts Champions - The Magnificant Seven

PDC Darts William Hill, World Darts Championships 14th December 2017 - 1st January 2018 Sky Sports

PDC William Hill World Darts Championships 2018 first round draw has been made and the details are listed below.

In the 24 previous PDC World Darts events, there have only been seven winners of the title. Dennis Priestley won the first event in 1994 beating the legendary Phil Taylor 6-1. Then came the dominance of the Power winning the next eight before again being beaten in the 203 final by Canadian, John Part. Phil then won the next three before facing the Raymond van Barneveld in 2007 final.

Barny had moved to the PDC, in his words to play the best players in the World and in particular to play one man, Phil Taylor. The 2007 has gone down in history as one of the best-televised darts matches ever. At six set all the seventh went to a sudden-death leg. Both players had to again bull off. Phil hit the outer-bullseye, Raymond opted for Phil’s dart to be left in the board which allowed him the to use the dart to hit the centre bull. Raymond triumphed in the last leg decider and since then the PDC has now changed the rules for the bulling up procedure.

John Part won again in 2008, Phil took the 2009 and 2010 tiles before Phil’s prodigy, Adrian Lewis storm onto the scene winning back to back World Tiles in 2011 and 2012. Phil Taylor again was not of the scene he won again in 2013 beating the young Michael van Gerwen in the final. Michael went one better in 2014 and won the title for the first time.

Scotland’s Gary Anderson was in the driving set for the next two years winning the 2015 and 2016 titles but it was the young Dutchman. Michael van Gerwen, who asserted himself in 2017 and won the World Title for a second time 2017.

Michael is the current PDC No.1 is again favourite to retain and win his third title at the Ally Pally on 1st January 2018
