A 9-dart finish is the “Holy Grail” in darts. On 13th October 1984, iconic English darts player John Lowe successfully accomplished the first ever televised 9-dart finish. He was playing in a match against Keith Deller at the MFI World Matchplay Championship and pocketed a bonus prize of £102,000 in the process. In today’s money, that would be equivalent to over $400,000 – not bad for five minutes work!
Watch in this video how John Lowe did it.
