He beats Belgium’s Emonts to clinch Stage 2 of Soft Darts World Championship in France

SINGAPORE — Darts duo Paul Lim and Harith Lim made the headlines three weeks ago when the Singaporeans knocked out top seeds Scotland at the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) World Cup of Darts, and subsequently reached the quarter-finals for the first time.

This week, veteran player Paul added yet another achievement to his long and illustrious professional career when he won Stage 2 of the Soft Darts World Championship — The World in La Rochelle, France.

The 63-year-old emerged champion from a field of 157 competitors when he defeated Belgium’s Francis Emonts to net US$15,000 (S$20,864) in prize money.

Emonts had earlier beaten Harith in the quarter-finals.

The Lims — who are not related — had combined for a giant-killing performance in Frankfurt earlier this month at the World Cup, shocking Scotland’s world No 2 and 3 Gary Anderson and Peter Wright before beating Spain en route to a historic last-eight finish.

Paul’s latest triumph means that he has risen to the top of The World rankings, overtaking Stage 1 winner Alex Reyes of the United States, with four more stages left to go.

Started in 2011, The World is an annual tournament that comprises various stages played in different countries over the course of the year.

Players compete to be crowned individual stage champions and are also awarded ranking points based on their final positions. The player who accumulates the most points at the end of the season is crowned overall champion.

Paul was particularly pleased with his win in France because of the high level of competition. Stage 1 was played in the US, while the remaining stages will be in Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia and Hong Kong. “It was tougher in France because a lot of European players who play The World stages don’t travel to Asia as it costs too much,” he told TODAY in a phone interview.

“Many of the good players don’t have the sponsorship to go to Asia comfortably. Travelling to Asia would cost them a couple of thousand euros even before the tournament.

“So in France, we had players from England, Germany, Spain, Holland, all those based in Europe. They all came out because it’s closer for them.”

The overall champion in 2013 and last year, Paul is gunning for a hat-trick this year. A top-four overall finish also comes with a guaranteed berth in the Super Darts 2018 tournament, which gathers champions and top-ranked soft-tip darts players from around the world. It will be held in Japan and will feature 16 players.

“Super Darts is one of the biggest tournaments in the world,” said Paul, who was the 2015 champion. “This has definitely put me on course to do well in the annual rankings (to qualify).”

Soft-tip darts, with tips made from plastic, use electronic dartboards, which calculate the score automatically as opposed to traditional steel-tip darts. The PDC World Cup is a steel-tip tournament and Paul plays in both, although he is regarded as one of the best soft-tip players in the world.

Based in Hong Kong as a consultant with community entertainment company Dartslive Asia, Paul’s next tournament is the PDC Shanghai Masters on July 7 and 8, where he is one of eight invited Asian players. He will then travel to Taiwan for The World Stage 3 on July 30, where he hopes to continue his winning momentum.

Gary Anderson won his 20th Players Championship title in Wigan - 24 hours after losing to Steve Beaton

Gary Anderson bounced back from a final defeat to Steve Beaton on Saturday by winning his 20th Players Championship title in Wigan 24 hours later.

World number two Anderson overcame Ian White 6-1 in Sunday's showdown, having fallen 6-3 to Beaton in the weekend's opening final.

Anderson dominated White from the off, narrowly missing out on a 170 finish in the first leg before achieving a break of throw in the second with an 84 checkout.

White could only take the fourth leg against two-time world champion Anderson, with the Scot closing out victory with double tops to win his third Players Championship of 2017.

"These tournaments are hard work, so it's really good to get the win," said Anderson, as quoted on pdc.tv. "Steve was fantastic yesterday and it was my turn today.

"I love it when the old boys stand up and show everyone what we can do. We are still doing the business and the young guys aren't quite there yet."

Earlier on Sunday, Anderson edged past Mickey Mansell 6-5 before beating Harry Robinson 6-4.

Anderson was also victorious against Kyle Anderson, Dirk van Duijvenbode, Richard North and Rob Cross en route to the final.

Don't forget that you can see all the action from the World Matchplay Darts in Blackpool, live on Sky Sports. The arrows run from 22-30 July.

The Adelaide thrower will make his first GS of Darts appearance at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall

Aussie thrower Peter Machin has qualified for the Grand Slam of Darts this November

Peter Machin is to make his Grand Slam of Darts debut in 2017 after being confirmed alongside Glen Durrant and Danny Noppert as three of the eight BDO Qualifiers for November's event.

Machin won the recent BDO World Trophy in Wales to secure his first big title, having lost out to Darryl Fitton in the final 12 months earlier.

Lakeside Champion Durrant and runner-up Noppert - who both impressed on their Grand Slam of Darts debuts in 2016 - have also secured automatic places in this year's tournament.

PETER Machin, for the record, doesn’t slam pints on stage.

“Back in the day, when I first started playing, it was like, ‘yeah, a beer in one hand, darts in the other’,” he grins.

“The game is so different now. I might have a couple before to settle the nerves.

“But these big events, you get there three hours early to prepare — well, if I drank for three hours solid, just throw me in the taxi and send me home.”

When Machin says big events, we’re talking international tournaments. Global majors.

This Elizabeth South dartie, who might squeeze in “two or three hours” of practice in his backyard man cave on a Wednesday night, went back to work last week running Angle Vale’s BWS store fresh off being crowned the British Darts Organisation’s World Trophy champion in Wales.

After finishing runner-up in the same event last year, 43-year-old Machin went one better to win the second major on the calendar for the sport’s traditional ruling body.

The title came with a 10-8 victory in the final over three-time BDO world champion Martin Phillips. It also meant a payday in the range of $13,000, plus $1600 for the best peg-out of the tournament — a maximum 170 during an earlier match.

“But there was no major sponsor this year, so in the end, all it did was cover a bit of a holiday in France afterwards, plus a little bit left over,” he says.

The bigger prize is a guaranteed start in an elite 32-man field at the 2017 Grand Slam of Darts in England in November, which carries a $185,000 winner’s cheque.

Standing in his way is a collection of the best players on the planet from the Professional Darts Corporation, including undisputed world No. 1 Dutchman Michael van Gerwen, Scottish ace Gary Anderson and the game’s greatest, Phil Taylor.

Yet back in Adelaide, this Riverland product who has represented Australia’s senior team for 18 years, remains more anonymous than a box of cleanskins.

“But I love it that way,” he says. “I don’t want to be a big deal. I’ve got a few customers come in to the shop and ask how I went. I think I nearly knocked one over when I said I’d won the trophy. For me, it’s just the satisfaction of trying to win for your state or your country.”
