VIDEO: Throwback to Van Gerwen’s brilliant World Matchplay nine darter in 2012
The World Matchplay returns for this year’s edition in a few days time with the world’s best all in action. Ahead of that we are looking back on some of the best moments in the history of the tournament.
At the World Matchplay 2012, Michael van Gerwen threw his first nine-darter at the PDC . The current number one in the world produced his perfect leg in his second round game against Steve Beaton.
This was probably one of the main precursors to showing the quality that Van Gerwen can produce which was followed by a run of major titles and many more nine darters in the years that have followed.
