Phil Taylor dominates the east coast of Australia

Phil Taylor continued his dominance on the east coast of Australia in major televised dart tournaments as he took out the Brisbane leg of the Pro Darts Series on Thursday Evening. The final came down to two Stoke natives going head to head as a resurgent Andy Hamilton took on Taylor.
The final itself was one way traffic as Taylor was victorious 7 legs to nil.
Andy Hamilton had the first throw but it was Taylor who got out of the blocks faster as he moved quickly to 180. With Hamilton only on 208 a 140 left Taylor on tops and at his next visit Taylor got the check out with a double ten on his last dart at hand. In the next leg Taylor threw a 123 and then a maximum to leave himself on 198. He completed the leg with another double ten to go two up.
Through the middle of the match it was all Phil Taylor including visits of 100 and 180 which left him on 125 in the fourth leg. After a less successful visit Taylor converted 79 with a treble 13 and tops. The fifth leg saw Taylor move from 177 to tops which he collected at his next visit.
In the sixth leg Taylor opened with a maximum and quickly moved to 136. He left tops but missed all three attempts at his next visit, leaving himself double 10. Hamilton was on 134 but left tops. Taylor missed double ten at his next visit but got double five at the first attempt to go six up. In what turned out to be the final leg Taylor opened with another 180 and then hit another treble twenty before missing that same target with his fifth dart (although he did get it with his sixth peg.) With Hamilton a long way behind Taylor converted to make the final a whitewash 7-0.
Overall Taylor was delighted with the result and said that he was enjoying this new phase of his life. It certainly has started successfully for him. The tournament now turns towards the Gold Coast next week.
