Whitlock replies to criticism regarding dart points: ‘Give me decent boards and I’ll adapt my points to suit’
Simon Whitlock received criticism during his Quarter-Final defeat at the World Matchplay to Gary Anderson regarding his points and the way they were supposedly damaging the board.
Whitlock has hit back at the criticism which has been long standing; but has been focused on more during the behind closed doors tournament in Milton Keynes. Also Wayne Mardle shared his opinion and said the points should be banned.
However the Australian doesn't agree with that. ‘Getting bored about hearing my points damage the boards; the problem is the boards are too inconsistent soft/hard/soft', he stated on Twitter.
He then suggested to improve the dart boards. 'Give me decent boards and I’ll adapt my points to suit - many players use adapted points not just me.’
