NINE DART BONUS IN THE DESERT
By John Lowe, May 19 2015 09:40AM
The biggest incentive for a nine dart game since the very first on the 13th October 1984 in the MFI World Matchplay which was completed by myself earning me £102,000, will be on offer at this years Dubai Masters.
THE stars of the Dubai Duty Free Darts Masters will be playing for a special prize in this months event, with sponsors SIXT Rent a Car offering a Mercedes-Benz car for the first player who lands a nine-darter!
The year's opening World Series of Darts event will see eight top stars competing on Thursday May 28 and Friday May 29 at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium.
Michael van Gerwen has been crowned as the Dubai Duty Free Darts Masters champion for the past two years, and will be bidding to claim a title hat-trick against Phil Taylor, Gary Anderson, Adrian Lewis, Peter Wright, James Wade, Raymond van Barneveld and Stephen Bunting.
As well as the coveted title, the players will also be competing for the chance to win an all-new Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, which will be presented by SIXT Rent a Car.
This could well be the difference that produces the perfect game on TV something we have seen come so close in the Premier League this season, I am a little surprised to see the line up for this event, MVG, Taylor, Anderson, Lewis, Wright and Wade are the top 6 in the order of merit, but Barney is ranked 13 in the order of merit and 36 on the Pro-Tour, Bunting 21 in the Merit table and 20 on the Pro-Tour, I feel sure there will be a few disgruntled players like Whitlock, Chisnall, Thornton, Dolan, Jenkins and White to name a few who are above both players in both tables, especially Chisnall who could be the Premier League winner on Thursday, sometimes invitations are the norm and acceptable but to overlook so many higher ranked players will leave a sour taste and rightly so.
