"It's quite an achievement for me as a young lad to be here": Humphries revelling in New York debut at US Darts Masters

Luke Humphries will play at the US Darts Masters this weekend as his World Series of Darts tour continues after playing in Bahrain and Copenhagen.

Speaking ahead of the tournament, Humphries is revelling in the opportunity not only to play darts but visit a place he's never been and an iconic venue.

"This is an iconic venue and to get to come over here and play the sport I've always loved and do it as a job is quite incredible. So really excited to be here," said Humphries.

"It's going to be the most iconic venue I'll ever play in. It's quite an achievement for me as a young lad to be here."

"These are nice events to be part of. It's not about the darts, we're trying to grow the sport as a whole in different parts of the world. We get to experience other countries which is good for players. I've never been to New York so it's great to be here."

But not only for Humphries, he sees it as a big opportunity for the sport as a whole.

"Little old darts ten years ago to now be here is quite an achievement for the sport as a whole. It is a big market that hopefully we can crack and American people can take a love to our sport. It's exciting that we're here again, we keep coming back."

On his own personal game, he has suffered horrific luck falling in four European Tour finals but he is ready to once again win a title.

"My game is in the best shape it's ever been. I think I'm personally playing better than I was last year. My scoring power has been a lot better. I think I'm building up to a title that'll come soon."
