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.
UK Open Qualifiers 4-6
Daryl secured his place at the UK Open Finals, narrowly missing out on a spot in the top 32 of the Order of Merit, but within the top 64, which means he enters the final stages in round two.
It was on Sunday where 'Superchin' had his best run of the six events, reaching the last 16 at the Robin Park Arena in Wigan.
The UK Open Finals will be held at Bultins in Minhead from March 3rd - 5th and will be shown live on ITV4 so make sure to tune in to follow Daryl's progress.
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.”

Daryl’s good 2016 continued in Barnsley, with qualification for European Tour events,with Daryl no 1 seed in the first qualifier, and his performance meant he auto qualified for the second! Day 2 saw Daryl get to the quarters of the Player Championships ProTour event 12, with Sunday being the only disappointment with a lost in the 2nd round.

German Darts Masters
Another big European tour event this weekend, which Daryl will start with a ton of confidence, his 2016 going to plan so far. Daryl is starting to turn a few heads in the darts world with his move up the rankings, and his manager Matt Ward told me the other day to expect big things as he feels Daryl is “something special”. Daryl of course made the final of the Dutch european event recently, so he’ll hope to at least match that!
Daryl put in another fine display as he beat Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-3 to progress to the second round, with the Dutch Darts Masters finalist firing in four maximums and a ten-darter on his way to victory over the young Belgian.

Daryl has his best World Championship so far in 2017
Daryl's produced his best performance yet at the 2017 William Hill World Championship at the Alexandra Palace, London.
After an impressive 3-1 first round victory over Dutchman Jermaine Wattimena, Daryl then came through two thrilling encounters against Robert Thornton, and Mark Webster, coming through them both in final set deciders 4-3.
Daryl's then lost out 1-5 in his first World Championship quarter final against world number one, and eventual World Championship winner, Michael van Gerwen.
This personal best performance for 'Superchin' sees him climb to number 21 in the PDC Order of Merit, and continues his dramatic rise up through the rankings since winning his PDC Tour Card back in 2013.
UK Open Qualifiers 1-3
It was an up and down weekend for Daryl as he tackled the first three UK Open Qualifiers in Wigan.
On day one, he lost second round to Jonathan Worsley 4-6 and the same occurred on day two, this time losing 4-6 to Ryan de Vreede,
On day three, he faired a lot better, first beating Jack Todd 6-2 and then Adrian Gray by the same scoreline to pick up the neccessary money to hopefully qualify him for the UK Open Finals in Minehead.
Now all that is left is to kick on and try to book his place in the top 32 qualifiers to see him book his place in round three at the overall finals.
