Top 10 Best Darts Players of All Time
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).
The Greatest Player there has ever been and always will be because no one will get close to breaking his current record of 16 Times The Champion Of The World.
Rafael Nadal (Tennis), Ronnie O'Sullivan (Snooker), Tiger Woods (Golf), Michael Schumacher (Car Racing), Phil Hellmuth ) Poker), Michael Jordan (Basketball)... All supreme in their field, but all have the possibility of one day being overtaken... NOT PHIL TAYLOR, HE IS THE GREATEST AND that's THE WAY IT WILL STAND FOREVER. Saying someone could be better than him at darts is as crazy as saying someone could be better than Michael Jackson at entertaining!
Simply the best ever - no comparison to what he achieved. Bristol and Lowe changed darts - Taylor took it to another (on his own) level
Why there is always that tiny country, good in everything. Darts, typical Brititish, and there come the Dutch. Football, typical English, and there come the Dutch. Small and stubborn country with just 17 million inhibitants performing like a world giant on every occasion.
Without doubt second best ever after his wins in the past year & a half in the Grand Slam over MVG & to beat Taylor & MVG to win the Premier League in one night was just epic! Proves himself year after year in the league phase of that competition
The only player from the continent that has been a top player for many years. And still is a to payer.
No sorry but to be a great champ you have to be a good looser barney needs to lose gracefully
Seems to break every record and has done so since he was only 16 years old.
He has been nearly invincible for the last four years and I suspect he will remain so for the next couple of years. Therefore he's my all time number 1!
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.
He is pure genus getting to the final of biggest dart tournament in the world and just missing on the trophy and winning the Dart Premier league.
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.
He was a legend. Greatest ambassador in darting history. The GOAT and KING of darts. Those even who did not follow darts would know who "The Crafty Cockney" was. RIP Eric Bristow, the pioneer of the modern professional game, you'll be missed by all! He left us far too early. Up there now having a pint with Sid, Jocky and Phill Nixon. True legend. RIP.
Eric Bristow is beyond fought better than Barney, Barney never ruled the sport for 10 years like Eric undisputed did in the 1980s Eric was the king and he created the Monster Darts man who took over his mantle as the greatest in Mr Phil The Power Taylor. There is no argument Phil and Eric are by far The greatest 2 players ever to step onto THE OAK. :-)
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.
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
3 world champs over three decades. Classic player
three world titles all won against the best players in the world
Dennis the menace has 2 world titles and 4 other final appearances
The second best after Taylor
only won two world titles but would have certainly been more if it wasnt for phil taylor
There has never been a player like Jocky, I'd rate him 3 rd
The best thrower non the less. At least top 10
Just died not so long back nice guy
Put simply. One off legend
Huge Aidy Lewis fan, unbelievable natural talent. Hopefully he will add to hid two world titles in the future
Most naturally gifted darter in the history of the sport!
Existentential Darts and the most fluent and unbelievably talented Darts player ever.
At times, he plays like no one. Not even Phil.
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.
How is he below Lewis? Wade had beaten Lewis nearly 30 times including major finals and Wade has 8 majors compared to Lewis' 4.
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
This lad has won 8 majors playing in the most competitve era of all time (Taylor, MvG, Anderson, Lewis, Barney) with a 95 average. Respect.
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.
Only canaidian to leave his mark. John broke through at a time when it was almost unthinkable for a north american to be world champ
It takes a lot to cross the pond and play against the worlds best and win. Hats off John Part
"Darth Maple", the greatest non European dartsman with 3 world titles
Built his own house
the darts personality! (Well maby Mardle... )
Since 2014. He is one of the best, maybe the best darts player in the world.
He won 2 World titles, 1 Premier League and Multiple majors in this time
Greatest player not to win the World Championship. Still has plenty left in the tank, it all comes down on when he's ready and up for the World Title. PL Champ in 2011.
Great player, high scorer and finisher, great bloke, the best is yet to come for gary
Great player, high scorer and finisher, great LAD, could see him do very well!
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.
first ever world champion. the godfather of professional darts
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.
Can't find him in this list don't know where to put him but definitely deserves a place
He's has his own style and he stands out by not only his style
Best one ever seen
Fastest player in the world of darts! Great player
Cool everything about him
Fastest Player in the world!
Does not belong in this group
One of the smoothest natural throws out there, something every new player should look to emulate.
Out of his element in the PDC. Not capable of playing the big boys on a weekly basis
Pure talent and such a nice guy. May be dumber than a bag of rocks but I love watching him play.
Next to Hankey, the worst sport and the worst ambassador to the game ever!
Can beat anyone on his day. Belgium's best player so far. Still very young, World Title is possible for him one day.
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
Was epic at the GSOD 2014!
Just a great darts man who always does well and should be further up this list.
Awesome pure and simple
You must love the bully
Great player with a lovely dart release. Popular in the 80s and 90s. One who could easily neck a dozen pints before coming up stage he had a real thirst when it came to lager!
1983 World Champion and stylishly finished with a stunning 138 checkout. He continued to progress through the 80s and 90s becoming one of the most dominant players of the late 1990s along with Priestley, Taylor, Harrington, Manley and Burgess. Deserves a mention in this list.
who could forget that memorable 138 finish against bristow to win his only world title
Amazing darter! Amazing guy! Doesn't deserve all the abuse he gets. Lay off the guy he is truly a great! ️️
