Did Mason ever take part in this competition?



It’s all bantz
Of course it's all "bantz" , they're great pals

If anyone thinks Glen isn't a top 8 player in the world of darts (either code) then they need to take up watching a different sport , he's world class simple as

He's not a really big scorer, so top 8 is a big ask. The loss to Gilding at the Grand Slam of Darts shows what he'll be up against in the PDC.
But, I'm sure there's a bunch of PDC players in the top 16 who'd be happy if he stayed in the BDO.
So...Who in the PDC top 16 would be happy if Durrant stayed in the BDO?

Well, the tournament started off really bad on friday. Yesterday was a bit better and today was pretty decent with a lot of close games. Womens final was a good game to watch too.

I think top 16 is pushing it... over a 2 year OOM... if he moves this year, I think he will make an impact but very similar to Bunting. To be honest hope I’m wrong, he plays the game in the right way and seems a nice bloke.
He is playing very well and is consistently producing a circa 100 average. Is probably averaging higher than any other player in BDO history, but that being said, he is under no real pressure and in the PDC, he will have other players matching him on a leg by leg, match by match basis. Have articulated this before, but any player getting into the Top 32 after their debut season has done phenomenally well.

For me, I really rate Glen and think if he gives up his Housing Manager job and turns full time darts professional, he can be a regular in the latter stages of Majors in the next 18-24 months.
Hasn’t Glen already said he’s not giving up his job.

I don’t actually see this as an issue so long as he gets a team around him that can sort his calendar out and help him to manage the year ahead.

Could be worth him maybe not doing as many euro events in the first year until he gets his feet.

Not sure how the list is pointless. Takes a certain type of player to be able to win 'major/premier titles'.
So it is a list compiling the players who have achieved that feat most.
That some might have done it in a different era/code is neither here nor there.
Like asking to take out Fangio from the F1 titles list.


Is the correct answer.

It’s like saying Wade has never won a major because he never beat Taylor or MvG in any of them...

The lower standard players, like Chisnall, Cullen and Webster, who're likely to find it tougher to hold onto their seeding.

What are you on about you just falsely claimed he never beat them in the majors he won well he did. For example he beat Taylor in the semi when he won the masters.

wade beat both Lewis and Taylor that year he won the master, and both lewis and taylor averaged over 105 as well and wade still won.

Believe Wade beat Taylor the year he won the Premier League as well

What is it with people called Dave/David....be it David B,David Owen, Dave Green etc :grin:

Indeed and if he wants to put up this pedantic argument Durrants total should stand much lower than it is.

Did I not say ranking majors?? :grin:

Ok, geniunely forget about his Masters win but a lot of people have wrongly labelled that against him but fact is you can only beat and win what is in front of you and same goes for Duzza.

Don’t disagree with that last point.

However this list also includes The Champioship league of darts win as a major for Wade and thus he has also beaten Taylor in a final of a “major” :grin:

The analogy was to further back up what ChrisW correctly said earlier and given what many others (not me) have labelled at Wade in the past.

Now to take it further, if the Championshio League of darts is a major then no one can have an issue with the Finder Masters being one also given it’s actually on tv :grin:
