Welcome - Official Website of PDC Professional Daryl Gurney
Daryl’s experienced management team MDA Promotions and
MItchell Promotions have put their darts webmaster on the case,
JS Webs 180, and this website is the proud home of the Northern
Irish darts sensation, Daryl ‘Superchin’ Gurney.
Daryl impressed darts fans with his fantastic performances at his
first PDC World championships, and then immediately won his
PDC Tour Card at the tough qualifying school on day 2. At his first
PDC event, the UK Masters Euro Tour qualifying event in Crawley,
he qualified for the £100,000 tournament at Minehead – winning
through to the last 24 of a 100+ field of PDC professionals.
Now an established talent on the PDC tour, Daryl has already
impressed with a number of scalps and TV tournament runs. 2015
was a real breakthrough year, and his form has continued int0
2016. Ranked 32nd in the world, with a semi-final appearance
at he televised 2015 Players Championships, Daryl is now a
recognised star of the sport of darts.
Daryl continues form in Jena
Daryl continued his solid form at the HappyBet German Darts Masters at the Sparkassen-Arena in Jena, Germany.
Luck of the draw didn't favour Superchin as he drew fellow qualifer, two-time former World Champion Adrian Lewis in round one, but he wasn't phased and took the match in a last leg decider 6-5.
Day two wasn't so kind for Daryl, as he lost out 4-6 to Jelle Klaasen.
Daryl at the 2016 World Grand Prix
A fantastic year continues for Superchin, as he powers through the field in Dublin, the “double in” format doesn’t worry Daryl!
First Round: Daryl Gurney 2-1 Mensur Suljovic
Second Round: Daryl Gurney 3-0 Steve West
Quarter Finals: Dave Chisnall 3-1 Daryl Gurney
Daryl reached only his second major ranking quarter-final as he swept past Steve West in straight sets to set up a tie with Dave Chisnall. West had caused a sensation by knocking out 11-time World Grand Prix champion Phil Taylor on Monday night, but was unable to repeat the heroics as Gurney – who is still recovering from a broken bone in his throwing hand – edged all three sets in a deciding leg.
“I’m happy with the win but I know I’ll probably have to improve a lot to beat Dave Chisnall,” said Gurney. “My scoring was fine tonight but I’m trying my best with every single dart I throw. I’ve only been back playing since last Tuesday so I’m surprising myself with everything I’m doing. I’m trying not to rush myself and I’m trying to concentrate as much as I can on every throw.”
