World Cup darts thrill: 25-year-old debuts first-ever nine-archer shooter at a decisive man | World Cup darts game, broadcast live on VTM2

“Imagine, imagine.” Co-commentator Eric Clarisse sat on the edge of his seat when William Borland’s first six darts were perfect. It was against Bradley Brooks, also a 21-year-old rookie, 2-2 in sets and 2-2 in the legs. So it will come down to the ‘critical leg’.

Borland managed to get that number 9 in the decisive man. Via T20, T20 and D12. He did not appear in the World Cup. “It’s unbelievable, especially on this podium,” Borland said after his landmark performance. “I over the moon. I told myself I had to keep scoring well. I couldn’t dream of this, I just wanted to win the match. Bradley is a good friend, but I’m so glad I won.”

She is the eleventh nine-fourth in the history of the PDC World Cup. Raymond van Barneveld was the first to throw the perfect man on the highest podium in 2009. James Wade was in 2020 until the last day.

There is also a nice cash prize ready for the player who manages to throw nine quads twice in the tournament. This will not be easy. In the history of sports, such a feat has never appeared at the World Cup. If successful, Selco Builders Warehouse, the official partner of PDC, will offer a reward of £100,000 (over €115,000). £25,000 of the grand prize will go to a fan and £25,000 to charity. The remaining 50,000 pounds (57,500 euros) can be taken by the lover himself. The prize only goes to the player who is the first to produce the nine quarters.
