POLL: Who is your 2021/22 PDC Player of the Year?
The 2021 season has been completed with the conclusion of the PDC World Darts Championship which means a look back going into 2022.
In particular, it is awards season and for DartsNews.com that is no different. But who is your PDC Player of the Year for the 2021 season out of the three options compiled. Have your say below.
Jonny Clayton (World Grand Prix, Premier League, Masters and World Series of Finals winner)
A World Cup of Darts champion in 2020, Clayton was the star performer and the most successful player on the PDC Tour in 2021.
In a post Michael van Gerwen era of dominance and his compatriot, Gerwyn Price now leading the Order of Merit, it was 'The Ferret' who rose.
All starting with The Masters which started his year of success. He claimed a Premier League spot as a result of that and made good of his opportunity.
He went all the way to win it after also collecting two ProTour titles. He showed no signs of letting up though winning the World Grand Prix and World Series of Darts Finals in the back end of 2021.
Peter Wright (World Champion, World Cup, World Matchplay and Players Championship Finals winner)
The 51-year-old told darts fans at the start of the year to put money on him winning both the World Matchplay and World Darts Championship and he stayed true to that promise.
Adding the former for the first time, his form dipped after that triumph but returned at the right time to claim the Players Championship Finals and the Sid Waddell trophy for the second time.
He also added the World Cup of Darts for a second time alongside John Henderson this time and added four ProTour titles mainly on final days of Super Series.
Amid all the tinkering, Wright remains one of the World's best and could go to the top of the tree in just over a month.
Gerwyn Price (2020/21 World Champion, Three-time Grand Slam champion)
It was an up and down year for 'The Iceman' but he still remains World Number One and a box office attraction.
Price started the year by winning the World Darts Championship becoming the first Welsh winner and became World Number One.
His year was curtailed due to a positive Covid-19 test meaning months without action while the Premier League Darts was ongoing but in the second half of the year, he became Grand Slam champion for the third time.
