Multiple records were broken this past Players Championship weekend including the event with the most 180s, it has been revealed.
For these records, bare in mind though that statistics are only kept since the introduction of DartConnect (since 2018).
On Saturday and Sunday 560 and 552 times, respectively, 180s were thrown. The old record was 548. That resulted in a new mark for event and weekend in terms of 180 scores.
Peter Wright in claiming the title on Saturday with no less than six ton plus averages also claimed the highest tournament average by a winner of 106.07.
Speaking of averages, it was a record breaking one for 100+ averages with the standard increasing and it going to 91 respectively.
This broke down as Saturday 47 and Sunday 44, both higher than the old mark (43), which was thrown during Players Championship 23 in 2019.
All these records being broken shows the true increasing standard on the tour which has been brilliant to watch. How long will these records stand?
