ON THIS DAY IN… 2010: Taylor wins final edition of US Open

In 'On This Day In...' Darts News looks back at a player's event or achievement on a particular date. We start with a return to June 27, 2010.

The US Open is often referred to as a major tournament in tennis or golf, but in the past that was also the name of an event on the darts calendar.

The first edition was in 2007, which Phil Taylor claimed at the expense of Raymond van Barneveld. A year later, The Power defeated his compatriot Colin Lloyd for the overall victory.

From 2009 it went downhill with the status of the US Open. The tournament lost its major status and continued as a Pro Tour tournament. Taylor decided not to defend his title in 2009, which led to Dennis Priestley taking the title in Atlanta.

A year later, Taylor did travel to the United States again for the US Open. He completed his hat-trick there by dealing with Denis Ovens in the final battle. As of 2011, this event never returned to the PDC calendar.
