The best dart winning moment was back in 2007 in the PDC World Championship. It was when Raymond Van Barneveld (51-year-old Dutch professional darts player) defeated Phil Taylor with a score of (7-6), regarded by many as the greatest final ever, better described as Darts Gold.
Raymond Van Barneveld, also known as “Barney”, stunned the crowd after recovering from the 13-time world champion’s “Taylor” 3 points lead and fought back to a (5-5) tie.
The game was so intense as both opponents were doing a great job with their sets
The only thing the audience was wondering about was who was the player who going to hit and who is going to miss, it was not clear at the time as they were both expected to score especially with the great performance they were both producing.
The players took turns in sets then the Dutch player wowed everyone with a sudden death leg that got him ahead of the game. Barney got 21 maximum 180s and admitted that it was the only way he had a chance of victory against Phil Taylor, which says a lot about what you need to do to win against Taylor. But we think this time Barney was the better player.
Taylor admitted that this was the probably the finest match he has ever been part of. Everyone who has ever witnessed this game agrees as well, although it took place 11 years ago it is still one of the most remembered dart winning moments of all time.
