In an interesting statistic released by Christopher Kempf a.k.a Ochepedia, the world’s top 10 players were revealed as hitting only 7 out of 54 bullseye attempts during the World Matchplay.
This accounts for only 13 percent and of those seven attempts two of them were 170’s and one was a 164. These were hit by Peter Wright and Rob Cross for the maximum checkout; as well as ‘Snakebite’ again for the 164.
As a result it shows the form that Wright is currently in as well as Cross who of course went on to win the title defeating Michael Smith on Sunday night.
