Whitlock looking forward to returning alongside Heta at World Cup of Darts: "I've got the most consistent and best dart player in the world right now"

Simon Whitlock produced a magical display to down Jamie Hughes at the Dutch Darts Championship and for 'The Wizard' who was appearing for the first time on the European Tour this season, he was ecstatic to move through and showcase his new darts.

"I'd never beaten Jamie before and for me to beat Jamie first time especially with the great crowd, I used orange flights today," said Whitlock to DartsActueel.

"I won my first European Tour here in Holland, it's amazing to be back. I've got some new darts that I've had for two months and they're going fantastic so thank you to Winmau. The world's my oyster now."

"Now I've got my new darts, I'm so happy with something I've got in my hand. These darts are ones that will take me to lots of wins now."

Next up is Joe Cullen and he discussed his tactics for facing 'The Rockstar'. "I just play the board, he's going to have to play well to beat me because I'm in good form and I feel good."

World Cup of Darts

Also coming up is the World Cup of Darts in a few weeks and for Whitlock, he is looking forward to returning alongside Damon Heta who has stood out as one of the most in-form players on the PDC this season.

"It's amazing playing for your country. I can't wait for this year because I've got the most consistent and best dart player in the world right now, top four for sure, he's brilliant. We're good friends and I hope we go well."
