Anderson on PDC switch regrets: "I wish I would have done it a lot sooner"

Gary Anderson has been at the top of darts for a long time now and the PDC since 2009, a switch he wishes he would have done a lot earlier in an interview with Unicorn.

"Darts was a mistake really. I used to play a lot of pool in clubs and it got to a stage where it was £1 for a game of pool which 26 years ago was a lot of money. Dart board was there, darts were lying about so just started playing from there.

"Back then it was BDO, County, Super League and then the PDC which I signed up for 12-13 years ago which I wish I would have done a lot earlier. We got it drummed into us that we shouldn't be doing that but I did and I wish I would have done it a lot sooner."

He also discussed his nickname 'The Flying Scotsman' and his walk on song, Jump Around by House of Pain.

"I kind of got the nickname when I signed up with the PDC. They came up with it and it's just stuck. One of my mates was right into the music and he went through all these songs and said here I've got a song for you and I went it might work. He played it and I've had that for a long time as well."

As well as his top darting moment. "Winning the World Championship against Phil Taylor. Not just winning it but beating Phil Taylor on that stage, it was just playing the man."
