Seven Quarter Finals

Players Championship 5 (2015)
Players Championship 9 (2015)
World Grand Prix (2015)

White has showed some fantastic form this year and with a fantastic team behind him including his new darts manufacturers Unicorn darts he will be looking to have another successful weekend as his dream of a premier league spot moves ever closer.
He had a superb win over Daryl Gurney at the World Matchplay winning 10-2 hitting EIGHT 180’s in just twelve legs, but he ran into Peter Wright in the last 16 and lost 11-6.
Only time will tell what the future holds for White but it’s certainly looking bright for ‘The Diamond’ .
