Daryl Gurney posts career-high televised average in Perth first round but says there’s ‘more left in the tank’

Daryl Gurney insists there is ‘more left in the tank’ in Perth this weekend despite breaking his personal best televised average earlier today.

The Northern Irishman was flawless on the doubles as he hit six out of six of his double attempts in a 6-0 whitewash over Koha Kokiri in the first round of the TABtouch Perth Darts Masters.

Gurney’s final average of 106.09 was his best ever recorded on TV, his previous best was 105.85 in a 6-1 defeat to Kim Huybrechts in the Players Championship Finals last year, but he believes there is more to come from him.

“That felt good,” the 31-year-old said. “To be honest, I just brought new darts the other day out of the case because I thought the old ones were out there sell by date.

“So I just brought them out tonight to see if they’d make a difference and obviously in that game they did.

“It didn’t feel like a 106 average. I know I’ve got more left in the tank, but if I can keep my finishing percentage up like that, like I have been these last few weeks, and keep my scoring as I usually do I should be ok.”
