Phil Taylor retires from darts as Brit calls it a day as sport’s GOAT
Michael van Gerwen on darts in America
Darts’ greatest ever player Phil Taylor has announced that he will be retiring from the sport and that the 2024 season will be his last one before calling it a day. ‘The Power’ has won 16 world titles across his 35-year career but is stepping away from the game.
In a statement, Taylor said: “I’ll always love performing to the best of my ability, but time waits for no man, and I know now is the right time to step away from the Tour.
“It’s been an unbelievable journey over the past 35 years, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’d like to thank Target and the World Seniors Darts Tour for their support in recent years and I’m looking forward to playing in front of darts fans across the country next year. I’m going to be working just as hard as I always have to make sure I give the fans what they want and go out on top”.
