Lim admits standard has increased ahead of 25th World Championship: "That's the beauty of darts, it drives you to get better"
Paul Lim will play in his 25th World Championship campaign when he takes to the oche in one of the ties of the opening round against Luke Humphries.
Lim spoke in a recent interview with the Weekly Dartscast about the rise in standard and admits that for him, it helps him get better and still compete.
"The standard of play has gone up since Bristow and Lowe. The averages you look at it now, it's gone up so much higher. Once upon a time, when you hit a 90 average, it's like wow. Suddenly it becomes a point when you have to be in the high 90's and people are shooting in the 100's right now," said Lim on Weekly Dartscast.
"We have to get more consistent and better in terms of averages in order to compete. I believe it's tougher but I think that's the beauty of darts. It drives you to get better and I feel I'm getting better."
