Hughes adamant that luck will change for him: "If it doesn’t happen for a year, I’m confident that given time it will happen eventually"

Jamie Hughes believes that his approach to the game will reap rewards and is positive about it doing so speaking in a recent interview with Red Dragon Darts.

Hughes has had success in his opening two years in the PDC winning the Czech Darts Open which saw his brilliance on full display but for 'Yozza', he can by his own admission perform excellent in a close game but lose out just by the slimmest of margins.

He believes though that time is very much on his side and that his luck can change for him in terms of changing these close games to wins.

“I’ve been playing the game long enough to know that you just have to crack on and think about the next one. It’s always trying to take on the positives.

“All I can do is improve my game and hopefully these close games will turn into wins for me. I’ve always been patient. If it doesn’t happen for a year, I’m confident that given time it will happen eventually.

“I’m still relatively young and got another 10 years at the top level. I’ve just got to keep plugging away and putting in the best possible performances. It will turn for me.

“That has served me well through the years. I think of key moments when you need more composure or sometimes you rush darts. It’s all learning and trying to become an all-round better player.

“I try and relax as much as possible. That’s when you focus and keep your concentration whether for preparation or in a match situation.

“Being laid-back mentally is important to me. You are in control of yourself and your emotions. Over the years I have been a bit over emotional and I’ve paid the price for it."
