PDC World Championship 2003

 

 

In 2003 Phil Taylors streak of 44 matches and 8 world titles without losing, ends. In a historical finale, played in the full 13 sets and full of drama, John part is the guy who overpowers Taylor. All credits go to John Part, because beating Taylor on his own stage is a chance won by few, and Taylor is throwing his a-game this tournament as well. His average across the entire tournament is around 100 a turn, and that is his exact average in the final. Part takes a head start with 4-1 in sets to then see The Power take 11 legs in a row, and getting ahead of him 5-4. Even then the Canadian remains focussed, and believes in his own chances. It goes to 6-6 in sets and in the decisive set it’s Part who proves the better players, and earns the title. That brings an end to a streak of wins that will probably never meet it’s par.
