Darts has grown to become a prominent sport not only in the UK but in several other countries. As such, many male professionals have become recognised as being the best in this sport.
Most will place Phil at the top of a list of famous dart players. One of the reasons being is he is one of the longest-serving players that competed in the game. Most importantly is that he has 16 PDC World Championship wins which puts him ahead of the rest. He goes back to 1990 when he revelled in the win of his first major trophy then his career continued up to the last title earned in 2017. To sum it all up Phil has 85 titles in the major category.
Michael Van Gerwen
At the moment Michael is considered to be the most famous player worldwide. He is a real contender for challenging Phil Taylor’s accolade. Michael won the World Masters at the young age of seventeen and has never looked back since. He has 32 major PDC titles, and there is no evidence that he is about to slow down. He is a pleasure to watch in action and is a big attraction.
Raymond Van Barneveld
He is also a big crowd drawer when it comes to the game of darts. He is well recognised for wearing orange attire during his gameplay. Some of his most loyal fans will attend his events sporting the same colour in support. He won four BDO titles over seven years then switched to PDC and was fortunate to beat Phil Taylor. This was a match that people are still talking about.
These are just a few examples of exceptional professional dart players that are keeping this game not only alive but one that still draws a great deal of interest.
