It's been a while since I entered Darts Underground, so time to bring you up to date, We spent the whole of January, and a little of February in Tenerife, my home from home, arrived home a little heavier, sun tanned, ready for a very busy time on the road, after just three days at home, it was time to head off for Wales, my first exhibition of the year, I was't surprised to see a sold out venue, it is a long time since I visited the very southern part of the Principality, next journey, Ireland, a two week visit, playing north and south, and that is where we are right now, after 7 days, we have visited, Dublin, Castlebar, Armagh, Dundrum, and the wonderful City of Galway, this is our mid tour break, and we have enjoyed it immensely, Galway is widely know has Irish Ireland, Quay Street area has everything, and the food in the Pub Restaurants, are of the highest quality, a visit to the Cliffs of Moher is a must, Thorn made the trip when he joined the last World Cup party, today we are off in search of a darts bar, not that easy, when you consider the amount of pubs there are in Galway, it is a little disappointing there are not more boards, but I am told, in the high season, there would not be enough space to play darts, in many town centre pubs, will let you know how we progress next time, my new web site is now up and running, take a look.

From the Dessert Classic, to Darts in the Dessert, The Dubai Duty Free Darts Masters, was launched yesterday, $250,000 prize money for the top eight players in the PDC rankings, Taylor, Barney, Lewis, Wade, Van Gerwen, Newton, Whitlock, and Hamilton, will take part, the winner will receive $50,000, the expansion of the sport by the PDC is taking another direction, the Middle East and Asia, this is the first of a World Series of Darts, at the moment it is only available to a band of eight, but with the introduction of the sport to countries like Dubai, it is hoped major championships open to a far wider field can be staged, the Dubai Duty Free Masters, will be the first event to be played pout side, in the Dubai Tennis Club, the dates are: May 23/24, let's hope one of the World Series event stages will be staged in America.

It's that time of year again, winter well under way, Christmas and New Yew Year over, time for a break, recharge the batteries, and still keep the arm going, time to head off to the Island of Fernando, or it's real name: Tenerife, a great Island in the Canary's, owned by Spain, but operates outside the EU, average rainfall per year, just 10 days, January can expect to be 25 deg daily, maybe a little cooler at night, we stay on the south of  Tanerife, at Los Cristianos, once a small fishing harbour, now built up but not overcrowded, it's ideal for people who like to walk, the sea fron broadwalk stretches from Los Cristianos to Caleta, probably 7 miles, and all flat, there are  plenty of good restuarants, and bars, for the darters: Chipeque Pool Bar, below Paradise Park Hotel on the left, close to the taxi rank, a real throw with Unicorn Eclipse Board, The Target Bar, top of the hill from the Harbour, turn left, Target is on the Terrace, again Unicorn Eclipse board, The Spirts Bar, next to Iceland near the open market, and Yella's Bar, two streets from the bus station, if you like golf, my course Amarilla is tough, but right on the sea, Adeje is a real championship course, and Los America's, a superb well kept course right in town. for the day trippers, Mount Teide is a must, the focal point of Tenerife, a Volcano that they say could errupt at some time in the future, but not this month, the Island of La Gomera, just a few miles off Tenerife, a stunning reserve of Foilage, and where the tradition of the people is to cummunicate by whisteling, the Atlantic Ocean between the two Islands is at it's deapest, almost one and a half miles, hence the whales who live there constantly. I hope I have wet your appetite, and you now realise why I have visited for over 20 years, Eric Bristow will be with me on this vacation, and Russ The Voice of Darts will be calling in for a week, we always stay at Royal Palm, you can take a look by clicking on the badge on this page, tell Neil the manager I sent you, and who know's maybe we will share a drink somewhere, one day, on the Island of Tenerife.

Taylor wins his 16th world championship, beating Michael Van Gerwen by 7 sets to 4, it wasn't all that easy though, Michael won the first two sets, and missed darts at the double kept him from taking a 5-3 lead, but at 4-4, Taylor kept up relentless pressure on the young Dutch player, Taylor's previous thought about retiring after the disgrace at the end of his semi-final with Barney soon disappeared, and now he has his sights et on a 17th title, who is to say he will not do it? maybe a Mr Michael Van Gerwen.

I know a lot of you do not have the opportunity to watch the live darts from the UK, especially, the world championships, so I try through my group to keep you in the loop, we are down the the final of the PDC championship, last night after the semi-final between Taylor and Raymond Van Barneveldt, there was quite a scene on the Ally Pally stage, you have probably heard many versions of what happened, today Taylor issued an apology, straight from a publicist, I am sure, this is the apology, and my views on just what happened.

PHIL TAYLOR has apologised to Raymond van Barneveld following their altercation at the end of Sunday's Ladbrokes World Darts Championship semi-final.

The pair exchanged words on stage at the end of Taylor's 6-4 victory after shaking hands.

Taylor has since contacted van Barneveld to apologise for the misunderstanding after being pulled off-balance by his Dutch rival's handshake.

"Raymond's a big lad and he has a strong handshake, and when he pulled me he it hurt me," said Taylor. "I reacted wrongly and I'm ashamed of that because I really like Raymond I'm gutted about what happened.

"It's upset a lot of people and it's also upset me. I've contacted Raymond to apologise to him and hopefully we can put it behind us now.

"I'm very close to Raymond, he's a great competitor and it was something that happened in the heat of the moment."


Well there it is, I didn't report the incident in my early post, I thought it would blow over, go away, but it hasn't, and SKY TV have covered the episode on their SKY News, calling it Agro at the Arrows, I know a lot of you read my report, and do not have the opportunity to watch the darts live, so I have to put you in the picture, at the end of the match which Phil won, Barney offered his hand, Taylor tried to pull away qucikly, and threw a few explicit words at Barney (television does not lie) Barney respond with a look of disbelief, and a shrug of the shoulders, Taylor stormed off the stage, still saying something to Barney, the audience where astounded  the TV viewers mesmerized  and the commentator non plus, I was tweeting at the time, and the reaction was incredible, not one tweet in favour of Phil, Barney is a very popular player, very respectful to the audience and his fellow player, and I cannot believe he would insult Taylor in anyway, my interpretation of events: SKY TV put together a pro-mo for the match, fast interview clips from Taylor to Barney, Taylor saying he was ready for Barney, Barney saying vice versa, then the interviewer asking Barney "are you ready for a fight" of course, I can win, and so it went, I believe Taylor took it in a persoanl way, and not the build up to pull in the viewers, that it was intended, and he showed it in his play, of course at the end of the match, he should have warmed to Barney, who after all was the loser, like boxers who knock the living daylights out of each other for 12 rounds, then embrace with respect, arena full, pro-mo worked, now we can be friends, That is how this match should have ended, with respect and dignity, instead it left a sour taste that many will not forget, to win 15 world championships, and now have a chance to make it 16, should have been more than a reward for Taylor and his army of fans, Barney should have been allowed to leave the stage a worthy opponent, who was not on his A game on the night, condescending is not a word I like, but it may be appropriate in this case. It will be interesting to see the reaction from the Ally Pally audience at tomorrows final.

I know a lot of you have been keeping in touch with the PDC world championship, and probably enjoying it, I have been watching, and reporting for quite a few publications, and my own site  the darts this year seem to be a lot closer in terms of, who can win, who may win, and who does win, there have been some great matches, that have been unfavorable, bad draws, two good players playing each other in the first round, when noticeably other players seem to have easier matches, but, that is the luck of where you are ranked, and who qualifies to play you, I always say the competition starts from the second round onward, and that is the case this year, we are down to the last eight, the quarters, and we are expecting some quality games,  And Hamilton v Phil Taylor, Andy on top form, Taylor, we do not know, he has had a relatively easy ride so far, tonight we will see how good his form is, and it will have to be good against a player who is rock solid, second on is Whitlock v Barney, who would want to predict the result of this one, Whitlock is waiting for a big game, Barney is playing a big game every round, this could go all the way, then tomorrow we have Newton v Wade, on present form Wade should win, but Newton is not a player to be taken likely, he can produce the game to beat anyone, last on is the mouth watering duel of the reigning World Champion, of the last two years, Adrian Lewis, and the young, but experienced Dutch player, Michael Van Gerwen, Gerwen is full of confidence, so far he hasn't been asked to dig deep, Lewis has not been at his best, but still good enough to get through, I hope this game lives up to it's expectations, certainly not one to miss, and just a thought, they will be playing for £25,000, $43,000, I guess that could make a lot of difference to the outcome.

Well, that's me finished for 2012, the last exhibition, or should I say after dinner speech, over, now it's time to put my feet up, relax, watch the two World championships, PDC and BDO, the PDC one well under way now, then off to Tenerife, my training camp (I like to think of it) for the whole of January, hopefully back, refreshed and ready to go again, already 50 bookings on the calendar for 2013, and quite a few tours in the pipeline, for those of you who have followed on my web site, the all new site is now up and running, and my coaching app for iphone and ipad, is doing very well in the market place, hopefully we will have it on the Android system in the new year. to read my views and daily reports on the World championship, visit my web site, and for those who wish to keep in contact regularly, then follow me on twitter, let me know you are a member of darts underground, and I will follow back. I do have intentions of visiting the USA and hopefully Canada in 2013, if you are interested in staging a show, then let me know, now it's off to the golf course, need to get my handicap down.

Eric Bristow was voted out of the Jungle last night, he managed to stay in there for 18 days, and reached the top four campers left, the public loved his witty humour, and cringed many times when his tongue got the better of him, he has lost 28 lb in weight, that show it was not all, having a good time, they had to do trials to get food, and looking at the weight loss of all of them, they did not succeed many times, Eric lived up to his reputation though, the first thing he did when he left the Jungle, went straight to the pub, and a pint of Guinness, now it's down to the last three, Ashley (Pussy Cat Dolls) Charlie Brooks (East Enders Soap Star) and David Haye, Heavy weight boxing champion, I don't care who wins now, they are all good people, will keep you informed who wins.

Bristow is still in the Jungle, many thought he would be voted out by now, with is straight talking, sometimes Lady upsetting ways, but no, the public seem to like our Eric, four celebrities have now gone (back to their 5 star Hotel) only one week left, can Eric survive and become King of the Jungle ? the bookies say no, he is placed last at 16/1 to win, he needs to climb up the popularity ladder, maybe being nice to the lady's in camp would do the trick, but that's not Eric's way, he was nipped by a snake in last nights trial, wonder what the Jungle holds in store next ?
