The best UK Open ever? Without a doubt, the answer is a resounding YES!
From Anastasia to Mawson….from Taylor’s 9-darter to ‘The Machine’ and the rise and rise of young Mr Wade….
It was a fabulous four days and just what ‘The FA Cup of Darts’ is all about….drama, excitement, shocks and surprises and some top top tungsten along the way.
Over 1200 players competed to reach the Reebok. 133 of them succeeded and the shorter format contributed to the darting drama, which made for great entertainment.
