"I have certainly gained a new lease of life": Wade practicing hard ahead of Masters

James Wade has dropped to tenth place in the PDC Order of Merit. Still, 'The Machine' looks forward to the Masters with confidence , which will start next Friday.

"Legendary golfer Gary Player once said “the harder I practice, the luckier I get”. It is a quote that has stood the test of time and is applicable to every sport," he told the Daily Star.

"I have certainly gained a new lease of life in the practice stakes and have taken the opportunity of one of the most extended breaks I have had for a couple of years to re-ignite my passion for putting in the hard yards."

Busy schedule

"My darts schedule has been so busy over the last 24 months (either travelling, playing, or returning from events) that I have got out of the habit of playing at home. That has removed the opportunity to make some valuable tweaks as well as build the confidence that comes with knowing that you have hours on the practice board behind you.

Although practice can not to be easy at times for Wade due to having bipolar.

"I have to be careful as my bipolar and ADHD does mean that there are some days when I just cannot get my head into it.

"I am frustrated and annoyed with myself and there is little or no point in continuing. This is less and less common now and you would know if you were there as you would hear me talking to myself and throwing out some pretty choice language and as well as some awful darts."
