Top 10 Darts Players

The Top TenXW

1Phil Taylor

The most dominant darts player for the last decade and a half - xanderh

Best ever especially when you 8 world titles
In a row, and hits two nine darters in one game, I don, t think no one else would achieve what phils done.

What why is Ted Hankey 9th?
Phil Taylor is #1 No brains really, 16th time world champ,
10 time Grand Prix champ and 6 time Premier league champion (i think there
Will be a 7th time).

Hey is amazing at darts

2Raymond Van Barneveld

No 2. 5 world titles and beaten Taylor more times than anyone

only fourth because four of his world titles came beating second rate bdo players. but proved himself in 2008

The only player from the continent that has been a top player for many years. And still is a to payer.

Right at no. 2. If Phil was not around Barney would have excelled and won a lot more titles.

3Eric Bristow

5 BDO titles and 10 BDO titles, the epitome of darts in the 1980's - celynwelshy

Can't believe Bristow is this low. Five world titles against top players, a man who ruled the sport before his protege, Phil Taylor, overtook him. One of the greats.

I had the pleasure of playing against Eric back in the 1980's when he was undisputed king of all darts. Virtually unbeatable.

Just class won a lot and smiled on the stage too just class

4Michael van Gerwen

The young talent!
Won the world Grand Prix of 2012 and reached the final of the PDC World Championship 2013.
Almost hit 2 nine darters in a row: he only missed the D12 after 17 perfect darts.
I'm sure we'll see more of him in the future.

19 perfect darts, never performed before this man is already a legend. He now won the Premier league vs Taylor and atm I think he is the no1.

Definitaly one of the best darters, and still so young

Best darts player on the planet 🎯🎯

5John Lowe

3 world champs and 2 world masters, legend - celynwelshy

three world titles all won against the best players in the world

Had the pleasure of playing doubles with John in 1985 when he came to Australia. A great player and good bloke.

Must be higher then no8. Lowe/Bristow/Wilson all brilliant

6Adrian Lewis

Most naturally gifted darter in the history of the sport!

At times, he plays like no one. Not even Phil.

Huge Aidy Lewis fan, unbelievable natural talent. Hopefully he will add to hid two world titles in the future - mrtisonholiday

"Most intelligent active darter"

7Dennis Priestley

Dennis the menace has 2 world titles and 4 other final appearances - celynwelshy

only won two world titles but would have certainly been more if it wasnt for phil taylor

8Jocky Wilson

the colourful scot always gave 100 percent should have won more than his two world titles

The best thrower non the less. At least top 10

Just died not so long back nice guy

Put simply. One off legend

9James Wade

2nd most successful PDC darts Ayer ever. Record 3 9 darters in 1 calendar year still unbroken. Not been out of top 10 since he entered almost 10 years ago! Machine like, reliable, no fuss, brave and unwell man and for that I actually rate James in top 3

People forget how young he still is. Only 32 has at least another 20+ years at the top level and he has already won everything except for the World title. Consistently averages in the 98-105 range and leads the field when it comes to doubles. Well underrated by the Sky commentators and pundits.

Just got that something

He is the best

10John Part

won three world titles two of the in the pdc

Darth Maple is a former three time champ and was Taylor's most feared opponent in the early 2000s. Many consider the big Canadian as the best counter ever seen in the sport.

"Darth Maple", the greatest non European dartsman with 3 world titles - celynwelshy

Why do men like this not win more? Answer, Phil Taylor

11Bobby George

the darts personality! (Well maby Mardle... ) - celynwelshy

Built his own house

12Leighton Rees

first ever world champion. the godfather of professional darts

The big Welshman hit the first ever 10 dart leg and 170 checkout on T.V.. Up there with the big guns of the 70s and 80s. First World Champion and was a major, major influence back in the day. Alongside fellow Welshman Alan Evans both were the best partnership in the World in the 1970s.

13Ted Hankey
14Gary Anderson

Great player, high scorer and finisher, great bloke, the best is yet to come for gary

15Peter Wright

Can't find him in this list don't know where to put him but definitely deserves a place

Must admit I do not like this bloke. Plays for Scotland even though he is pure English just for international darts, arrogant and a poor loser. Darts is a game for gentlemen and he is what is wrong with modern darts. Good though, no doubt. - mrtisonholiday

16Kim Huybrechts

One for the future, definitely will have a lot of battles between Lewis, van Gerwen, Webster and Wade in the future!

He's on his way becoming a legend

Can beat anyone on his day. Belgium's best player so far. Still very young, World Title is possible for him one day.

17Dave Chisnall

Pure talent and such a nice guy. May be dumber than a bag of rocks but I love watching him play. - mrtisonholiday

18Terry Jenkings

Just a great darts man who always does well and should be further up this list.

Awesome pure and simple
