i keep bottling it i've hit 5 or 6 120s today then the 3rd dart is a 5 a 12 or even of the board.
any tips. is it best to try and throw straight away or stop take a breath and compose yourself again?

I'd say don't pause mate and try to think nothing of it and the third may float in, I wouldn't advise stepping back for rhythm purposes if you see what I mean Smile

Yea the only time I break my tempo in a throw is if I'm not on target. If on target I like to flow them.

thanks guys thats kinda what i thought , but it's hard to clear it from your mind and just go with it i'll need to work on that. wasn't sure if it was best to maybe sit back and calm yourself first

Best thing is to try not to think about it mate....its hard but as soon as you bang the first the pressure leaves and they will start to come more regular. At least your giving yourself the chances.....keep plugging away mate

when I hit the first t20 I start thinking in my head "the same the same" this temds to block out all the other bad thinking e.g. "im gunna blow it".

You will also go through a stage arfter you hit a few similar to this one but it will happen on your first t20 insted of your second. cauz lets face it when the first goes in then your on and the pressure starts straight away.

Just keep thinking "the same the same" and replicate the first throw and keeping rhythm. the next 2 will follow without even trying.

Funny thing darts, the harder you think the more you spray. Just let your brain throw the darts and not your eyes and arm (If ya get my drift)

Spot on Dirty G.

When I hit a t20 first dart, all that goes through my head is 'Nice dart, follow it'. Like-wise with two in the t20. I don't give myself a chance to think about anything else, just throw the dart. If I am doing what you have been doing ( missing the 3rd dart ) I will just say to myself that I'm being lazy and expecting the 3rd to follow and not throwing it but rather chucking it.

You should be pleased to a certain degree anyway because you are clearly throwing well to put yourself in that position Smile

Just recently, I had 2 t20's and my brain went "Hey, here comes a 180, sweet." and what happened, 140 scored. I thought about for that split second.

Most of my 180's come when I dont think, I just throw.

But as mentioned by others, the more you hit them, the more you will hit them.

Maybe try practicing with putting 2 darts in the t20 and just throw your 3rd dart.

Congratz on the shirt win mate.

One thing to help with the 140's, try just going for the fat 20. This may kill any chance of a 180, but you should start getting those 140's and the bonus may be that the dart drops and smacks the trip. Win win situation.

Maybe even consider going for a cover shot on the 19?

Even if there is all sorts of room left over in the 60 bit, switch it up.

I myself, get just as excited hitting a 177 or a 174.

A few of those will do a lot for the confidence level.

Yes indeed JD, not to mention the demoralizing effect it has on an opponent. I think the 177 and 174 hurt more than a 180.

So true. Funny you mention that. I hit a 170 last week while I was sitting on 202. 1st 170 I hit in ages simply because I rarely get a look at it. Of all the great games I had last week, the 170 stands out in my memory. An awesome option with the last dart.

So what was going through your head at the time? were you thinking about it or did you manage to switch off and just let it flow, just to look up and think - gee a max, that was easy, they just fell in there.

congrats on yur max and winning my shirt, I hope it shrinks <---- the shirt that is good job

Last night in league, I had my first 2 darts in t20, then I grabbed my 3rd dart, no thoughts in my head and bang, the dart slipped in my fingers as I was taking it out of my left hand.

140 scored. lol
