Even the double-in, double-out set format of the World Grand Prix is famously among the roughest about the PDC Tour, so to land the finish is the fantasy.
Northern Ireland’s Brendan Dolan will be remembered because of his ending against James Wade at the 2011 World Grand Prix.
Dolan created history as the first player to achieve a end from the double-start format, which was the highlight of his career and earned him the nickname’The History Maker’.
He created his life’s performance in a conquer of world # 3 Wade, which had been crowned when he hit a leg in the next group of the game.
Dolan opened the leg with a 160 score before adding a 180 plus a gorgeous 161 end – treble 20, treble 17, and then the bullseye – for a magic moment which delivered the Citywest Convention Centre to a frenzy and earned him a #5,000 bonus in addition to a guaranteed minimal pay-day of #40,000 for attaining the final.
“It’s absolutely amazing,” said Dolan. “I have only done three or four ordinary nine-darters in practice, so to do one on TV using a double-start is incredible.
“Once I hit on the 160 and 180, I had been concentrating so hard on getting the seventh dart in the treble 20. As soon as I struck the 17 I just knew the bullseye was going to move in, I felt comfy there.
“It is the greatest moment of my career to hit a nine-darter and reach the conclusion of a major championship is magnificent and the one thing that can out-rank it’s to win the closing now.”
Dolan streak in the tournament came to an end when he lost 6-3 to Phil Taylor.
In the World Grand Prix in 2014, James Wade and Robert Thornton made history as finishes threw at the match.
Thornton missed four darts to win the match and that allowed it to be won 3-2 by Wade to progress. It was made by him all of the way to final this season before losing 5-3 to Michael van Gerwen.
