Gary Anderson has vowed that he will get it right and return to the higher echelons of darts after a poor 2022 so far in terms of form.
This was underlined with Anderson falling in the first round of the World Matchplay against Daryl Gurney and he said he's 'lost' his darting touch.
As well as discussing in an interview with Unicorn Darts about his darting origins and how darts was a mistake.
“Playing-wise I’ve been terrible. I’ve lost my touch now but I’ll get back into it," he said to Unicorn Darts.
“But darts is just through the roof now, it’s in every country on the planet which is great for the sport.
“Darts was a mistake really. I used to play a lot of pool in clubs. But it got to the stage that it was a pound for a game of pool which, back 26 years ago, was a lot of money. That was your pocket money gone.
“So the dartboard was there, darts were lying about so I just started playing from then.
“I was in the BDO and then onto your county games, Super League and did that for many years and then signed up for the PDC about 13 years ago, which I wish I’d done a lot earlier. It got drummed into us that we didn’t want to do that.
“My parents were my role models. They taught me everything I knew. I was always taught to be polite and have manners.”
