Micheal Van Gerwen won the European Masters in Germany beating Terry Jenkins 11-4 in the final, this is the third victory in three weeks for the world number one, following his World Grand Prix win and a Players event last week, it seems just when everyone thought the reign of one player winning tournament after tournament was over, relating to Phil Taylor, along comes MVG who goes on a run that has already surpassed Taylors money winning haul by £200,000, MVG stands at the top of the PDC order of merit with prize winnings for the current ranking season of £933.100, a wonderful achievement and a testimony to the succes of not just MVG but darts as a sport.
Next event Scotland.

Stephen Bunting ended the hopes of Phil Taylor winning the European Masters in Germany, Bunting in his first year of PDC competition played superbly all through the match, both players averaged 102 but it was Bunting who took the lead and held on to it for the whole of the game, can he win the tournament ? he is in the kind of form and playing with such confidence that he will be hard to beat.

The European Open in Germany got off to a shock start for some of the top seeds, 5 of the PDC top ten players will be on the plane home today less than 24 hours after the tournament began, Anderson Wade, Lewis, Whitlock and Hamilton all lost their first match, I have to say it was a very poor attendance in such a big arena and that could have had a influence on players that have become used to big crowds in the thousands but take nothing away from the guys who knocked them out, Bunting beat Hamilton 6-1 firmly establishing his right to be up there with the best, Jenkins just pipped Anderson, Ronny Huybrechts beat Wade, Klassen beat Lewis and Barney beat Whitlock, yes, I hear you, not bad players to lose to, I guess the margin between the top players is now closer than ever, having said that MVG and Taylor are through !!

This is not a darts story but one I am very proud of, When I opened my Daily Mail this morning to page 9 I had the surprise of my life "World first as man whose spinal cord was severed walks" I had a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when I read this news, for years I have been playing in the David Nicholls Spinal Foundation Golf Day, it's aim is to find a cure for Spinal injuries and today they are able to say we are well and truly on our way to that end, there is of course a long way to go but when news that Mr Fldyka who had his spinal cord sliced in half a few years ago is now able to walk with a frame and even drive his car, it gives hope to thpousands who thought there was no hope. Today is a great day for the foundation and a great day for myself, to be able to offer a helping hand chose how small, playing a game of golf and helping to raise funds for the cause makes me feel incredibly humble.
Photgraph: Mr Fldyka who was paralised for for years, his recovery described more immpresive than putting a man on the moon.

Just three days before my 9 dart game on Television 13th October 1984 I played an exhibition at the Norfolk Darts and Social Club in Norwich, this is the score sheet still on dispaly in Carmicheal's Trophy Shop, a 21 dart 1001 giving a avergae of 47.66 per dart, David who was one of Norfolks finest players was a little unlucky to catch me on the form of my life.
