Diabolical Perfecting Scoring

Hello Ken, nice to hear from you. Better still to hear you are doing so well. Here are a couple of things for you. Let me know how you make out with these? If the “Perfecting scoring” is a problem, put it away until you think you are ready.

Your friend in darts, George S.


Hi George,

Thank you for the drill.  I now see why you are so hesitant to give it away too early as it is clearly a diabolical piece of work.  Although I was not as ready as I thought, I am able to complete 5 drill marks on two numbers about half the time.  It takes a great deal of mental toughness to not let it beat you down and I’ve learned a tremendous amount about my reaction to success and adversity after only a couple weeks on the drill.  At one point I was able to come back from -14 on 20’s and complete it which was a real thrill.  I’ve been able to isolate my most common times for lapses in focus and have started working on techniques to shore that up.  The first few times I ran the drill I think I set a new personal best for cursing as I continued to sail my third dart outside the wedge to drop points.  After that experience I don’t think there is any result that will rattle me at the oche.

Cheers, Ken
