Laid-back Scotsman Gary Anderson has revealed that “chilling out” is his best preparation for major tournaments and has recently invested in a new snooker table.

The Flying Scotsman contests his opening clash of the World Series Finals in Vienna on Saturday having hardly thrown any darts in practice.

Anderson has had a sensational year so far, claiming the UK Open, World Matchplay and Champions League titles - all events he had never previously prospered in.

Anderson, who claims to have made a maximum 147 break, admitted: "I'm in a happy place, I feel good. 

"I'm loving life at home with the family. I've got a new snooker table and been out fishing. 

"Chilling it out is the best way for me to stay hungry for darts. It's working perfect right now and I’m not going to change it.

"I've got darts where I want it to be. I know how to prepare right nowadays and how to stay fresh.

"I've hardly been practising at all, I've literally only thrown a handful of darts over the past few weeks since the Grand Prix.

"The last time I said that to my manager Tommy Gilmour, I won the Champions League. It's exactly the same preparation for this World Series.

"Over the years I've learnt so much. It's quite simply, when I'm happy I play well. It's been a good year so far and that'll do for me."

Anderson has also won the Las Vegas round of the World Series, beating Rob Cross in the final of the US Masters in July.

He will open up against Dave Chisnall in the Second Round in Austria but is extremely relaxed about his game.

Anderson added: "I'm not getting worked up about winning or losing these days. If I get beat fair and square, good luck to the guy who wins.

"It’s the serious bit of the year if you like. I would obviously like to add a couple more trophies. But I won't be losing sleep over it, that's for sure.

"I've always wanted to win the Grand Slam in Wolverhampton. They've moved venues this year which isn't good. I don't like change!

"But I’ve always loved Wolverhampton so that will be good in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll go there on a high."
