2016 World Series of Darts – Stats Round-up
The six international legs of 2016 PDC World Series of Darts have now been completed following Michael van Gerwen’s win over Dave Chisnall in the final of the Perth Masters.
In this article I look at some of the stats and facts from the six tournaments.
Firstly a look at the winners of each of the events:
Dubai: Gary Anderson 11-9 Michael van Gerwen
Auckland: Gary Anderson 11-7 Adrian Lewis
Shanghai: Michael van Gerwen 8-3 James Wade
Tokyo: Gary Anderson 8-6 Michael van Gerwen
Sydney: Phil Taylor 11-9 Michael van Gerwen
Perth: Michael van Gerwen 11-4 Dave Chisnall
The tournaments have been dominated by Gary Anderson and Michael van Gerwen, Anderson having won 3 and van Gerwen winning 2 (as well as finishing runner-up 3 times), the only one that wasn’t won by Anderson or van Gerwen was captured by Phil Taylor.
Here’s a look at how all of the 8 seeded players fared in each of the 6 tournaments along with how many points they accrued in the World Series order of merit table.
This next chart shows the win/loss record for the seeded players during all 6 of this year’s World Series events.
As you will see I have also broken down the results against seeded players only, this again highlights the superiority van Gerwen and Anderson have had over the rest of the players. Another interesting point to note is that Peter Wright failed to win a single match against a seeded player during the 6 tournaments, all 7 of his wins came against players who were non seeded (this is not to say he had it all easy against the non-seeds, his Perth quarter-final win against Corey Cadby a case in point).
Now for a variety of other stats…
AVERAGES & CHECKOUT PERCENTAGE
A look at how the 8 seeded players matched up on their overall average and checkout percentage across the 6 tournaments.
TOP 180 HITTERS
Which of the seeded players were the most prolific 180 hitters during the 2016 World Series tournaments? (eg van Gerwen hit a 180 every 2.88 legs, Wade hit a 180 every 5.03 legs).
TOP 10 AVERAGES (OVERALL AND NON-SEEDS ONLY)
A look at the top 10 match averages and also a look at the 10 top averages recorded by non-seeded players.
COMPARISON OF STATS PER TOURNAMENT
How the 6 tournaments compared by average and 180’s hit.
1ST ROUND COMPARISON OF SEEDS vs NON-SEEDS
How did the non-seeded players fare against the seeded players in round one? (Dubai excluded as the tournament only contains the 8 seeded players)
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed the stats!
