THROWBACK VIDEO: Beaton hits nine-dart finish at 2019 German Darts Open
Because of the coronavirus pandemic there won't be darts on television or the PDC Pro Tour in the next few weeks. As a result DartsNews will look into the history books and look back on historic, remarkable and funny moments in the history of darts.
The former World Champion became the oldest player in the PDC to hit a perfect leg during a televised or streamed event. Phil Taylor held the old record as he was 55 years and nine days old when he hit a nine-darter during the 2015 Sydney Darts Masters. Beaton was only twelve days older last year when he produced the leg within nine darts.
