An exchange with a Flight Schooler

Hi George,
Well it’s been another 2 weeks and I’ve been working on A2. I picked¬† this routine up very quickly (1st attempt only took 44mins to complete) and have been adding numbers on mainly 25, T16, D12, D6 as these 4 numbers seem to come up regularly in games and I’m down to the 30mins mark even with the extra numbers.

My routine now consists of A1 (keeping with this one as it helps the big numbers), A7, A2 and then a few games against the PC opponent.

My Grouping and Accuracy are beyond belief now, so much so that I can almost visualize where the dart going is going to land in the board before I throw it. My 3 darts when thrown are almost in the same hole each time or if not 1 of the 3 is no more than 3mm away from the other 2. I’ve tried to introduce the rest of the team to Flight School as
well as they are amazed at how far my game has come over the last 4 – 6 weeks, so hopefully you’ll be getting some new customers very soon.:)
I never thought that a practice regime could improve my game by this much and we’re talking a good 20 points on what I was throwing at before. I’ve been consistently throwing above the 80 mark and last night in my singles after 24 darts (1001 game) had 96 left. Unfortunately the other guy took out 100 in 2 darts to finish with a 26 darter. However, that gave me a 113 average for the singles last night and both our team and theirs were amazed by both of us since he finished with a 115.5 average as well.

Thank you so much George, I’m enjoying my darts even more than I use to.
Yours, Chris.

I’m thrilled at your success. These kinds of successes really make Flight School so satisfying for me.
I’d like to ask a favor. May I publish what you’ve said here? I will not use your name, unless you want me to, it’s just that others can gain encouragement from your experience and I’d like to share it with the world.
Your happy friend in darts, George S.
ps – I find that darts is so personal, so private, in the practice part of it, that each person needs to make the commitment on their own, as you have.
Enjoyment comes from showing in public, as well as in private, what has been learned in private. Your enjoyment doubles when you enjoy solitary practice.
