World Seniors Masters 2022 | Day Two Preview and Order of Play

The First Round action continues at the 2022 World Seniors Masters on Saturday with two unmissable sessions at Lakeside.

The opening night of the inaugural event saw pre-tournament favourite Phil Taylor coast into the Quarter-Finals with a 4-0 whitewash of John Part, with Kevin Painter was sent crashing out in the Preliminary Round by David Cameron.

Canadian qualifier Cameron battled back from 3-1 down to snatch a 4-3 victory and will now take on reigning World Seniors Champion Robert Thornton in the evening session on Saturday.

Thornton, who stormed to victory at the Circus Tavern in February for the loss of only three sets, has already seen Painter bow out in his section of the draw and will fancy his chances of another strong run this weekend.

The Scot registered four of the top six match averages in that event and will look to end North American hopes here by denying WDF World Championship qualifier Cameron.

The afternoon session sees three-time World Champion Martin Adams take to his beloved Lakeside stage once again to face former European Championship finalist Wayne Jones.

Adams was beaten in the final of the World Seniors Championship but will be keen to bounce back from a disappointing First Round exit to Jarred Cole at the recent WDF World Championship.

Jones, meanwhile, marked his Seniors debut with a 4-1 win over Roland Scholten, but the scoreline did not tell the whole story of the match, with ‘The Wanderer’ having to dig deep at crucial times and battle his way over the line.

Multiple major finalist Terry Jenkins aims to continue the promising form he displayed in reaching the Semi-Finals at The Circus Tavern when he comes up against Richie Howson.

Howson defeated Darryl Fitton in the World Seniors Championship before going down 3-2 to Adams and returns as a WSDT Order of Merit qualifier.

The winner of that match will return later in the evening to face ten-time Women’s World Champion Trina Gulliver – who recently picked up a PDC Women’s Series title.

Two former World Masters champions collide as Deta Hedman takes on Colin Monk for the right to face Thornton or Cameron in Sunday’s Quarter-Finals.

Hedman, World Master in 1994 and 2013, let a one-set lead slip against Peter Manley in Purfleet and was beaten in straight sets by Tori Kewish in the recent WDF World Championship.

Monk, the 1996 World Master, is making his Seniors debut, having last appeared at Lakeside in 2004, and has competed in the Live League in recent months.

The opening match of the day sees four-time Women’s World Champion Lisa Ashton take on three-time BDO World finalist Tony O’Shea.

Ashton is a three-time World Masters winner and having dropped off the PDC circuit at the end of last season, currently leads the Women’s Series Order of Merit.

O’Shea, World Masters runner-up in 2004 and 2012, lost out to Kevin Painter in a last-set decider in the World Seniors Championship and will be poised for another formidable test here.

Two former World Champions go head-to-head in search of their first win on the Seniors circuit as Keith Deller meets Bob Anderson.

Deller, the 1983 World Champion, was narrowly beaten by Larry Butler at The Circus Tavern and has returned to local competitions and practiced with a number of PDC professionals in preparation for his return to Lakeside.

Anderson, 74, was comprehensively beaten in straight sets by eventual champion Thornton in February but did land a 180 in the final leg, accompanied by the famous ‘finger point’ celebration.

Another clash of two former World Champions and World Masters winners sees John Lowe take on Les Wallace.

At 76, Lowe is the oldest player in the competition and gave a strong account of himself earlier this year in defeat to Dave Prins at The Circus Tavern.

Wallace, the 1997 World Champion, was narrowly beaten 3-2 by John Walton on his return to televised action and will look to mark his 25-year world title anniversary with a win.

The action gets under way from 1pm BST, with all matches to be contested over the best of seven sets. All sets are the best of three legs.

Phil Taylor whitewashes John Part at the World Seniors Masters as Cameron puts out Painter

Phil Taylor coasted into the Quarter-Finals of the World Seniors Masters with a 4-0 whitewash of John Part at Lakeside on Friday, as David Cameron stunned Kevin Painter.

Thirty years on from his iconic second world title win over the late Mike Gregory, Taylor returned to the famous Frimley Green venue to defeat another former rival.

Despite being far below his best, Taylor dominated the contest against three-time World Champion Part, punishing the Canadian’s missed doubles to record a straight sets rout.

The Stoke legend will now await the winner of the clash between former World Champions John Lowe and Les Wallace in Sunday’s Quarter-Finals.

Taylor was openly critical of his own form, admitting: “I’m trying too hard to lift the roof off the building. It’s not me, but I’m trying.

“It’s so difficult to be as dedicated as I used to be.

“Lockdown threw my game apart and everything changed – my stance, my body, everything.”

Part had earlier defeated Lakeside nine-dart legend Paul Lim by the same scoreline, taking advantage of a plethora of missed doubles from his opponent.

The Canadian ace rolled back the years with a sensational 164 checkout to seal victory, but failed to replicate that form later in the evening.

Meanwhile, Part’s compatriot Cameron battled back from 3-1 down to defeat former Players Champion Kevin Painter in a deciding set.

Painter, semi-finalist in February’s World Seniors Championship, landed a 110 checkout en route to a 3-1 lead, before Cameron took out 138 in taking the fifth set.

Debutant qualifier Cameron then edged set six in a deciding leg before going on to complete the comeback with a match average of 89 to set up a show-down with World Seniors Champion Robert Thornton.

Wayne Jones, who also came through April qualifying event in Reading, marked his return to Lakeside with a hard-fought 4-1 win over former UK Open champion Roland Scholten.

Scholten had taken the second set to draw level, but only for Jones to dig deep and reel off three in a row for victory and a Last 16 tie against Martin Adams.

World Seniors Masters 2022 | Day One Preview and Order of Play

The inaugural World Seniors Masters commences at Lakeside on Friday with two multiple World Champions among a star-studded line-up.

The over 50s tournament runs from May 27-29 and incorporates a prize fund of £31,000 as the stars of yesteryear return to the home of world darts – the Lakeside.

The field includes nine former World Champions from both PDC and BDO codes, plus number of multiple major winners.

Phil Taylor, who won the first of his 16 World Championship titles at Lakeside back in 1990, is now eyeing a maiden Seniors crown.

Taylor was thrashed three sets to nil by Kevin Painter in the Quarter-Finals of the World Seniors Championship at The Circus Tavern in February and will be determined to bounce back at the first time of asking.

The Stoke legend has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourite for glory this weekend but faces a tricky opener against either John Part of Paul Lim.

Both players are vying for their first win on the new World Seniors Tour, with three-time World Champion Part having lost out to John Walton in Purfleet, while Lim was also beaten 3-1 by Dave Prins.

Lim, 68, has featured in the last five consecutive PDC World Championships and returns to the scene of his most memorable moment – where he famously hit the first televised nine-dart finish at the BDO World Championship back in 1990.

Canadian legend Part, 55, won the first of his three world titles here in 1994 and made the Quarter-Finals of the UK Open as recently as 2018.

Meanwhile, former Players Championship Finals winner Kevin Painter opens up with a tie against debutant qualifier David Cameron.

Painter, who first appeared at Lakeside in 1994, enjoyed a fine run to the Semi-Finals of the World Seniors Championship with wins over Tony O’Shea, Wayne Warren and Phil Taylor before going down 4-2 to eventual champion Robert Thornton.

Cameron is no stranger to this iconic stage, having appeared in seven previous BDO World Championships, as well as this year’s WDF World Championship – where he was beaten by Ian Jones in Round One.

The Canadian veteran came through the qualifying event in Reading last month and will look to hit the ground running back on the televised stage.

Wayne Jones joined Cameron in progressing through the qualifying event, and the former European Championship finalist has been drawn to face former UK Open champion Roland Scholten.

Wolverhampton’s Jones recently dropped off the PDC circuit but continues to compete at a high standard and will fancy his chances of a challenging for the title.

Scholten saw his return to competitive action ended in straight sets by Terry Jenkins in Round One at The Circus Tavern, and the Dutchman will be eyeing an improvement on his match average of 76 as he returns to Lakeside for the first time since 1999.

The action gets under way from 7pm BST, with First Round matches to be contested over the best of seven sets. All sets are the best of three legs.

World Seniors Masters 2022 Odds | Taylor favourite to bounce back at Lakeside

Phil Taylor has been installed as the pre-tournament favourite to claim the inaugural World Seniors Masters title at Lakeside in 2022.

The over 50s tournament runs from May 27-29 and incorporates a prize fund of £31,000 as the stars of yesteryear return to the home of world darts – the Lakeside.

The line-up features nine former World Champions from both PDC and BDO codes, plus number of multiple major winners.

16-time World Champion Taylor was thrashed three sets to nil by Kevin Painter in the Quarter-Finals of the inaugural World Seniors Championship at The Circus Tavern in February and will be determined to bounce back at the venue in which he secured his first world title back in 1990.

Taylor has been priced as the marginal 15/8 favourite with Bet365 to open his Seniors account in Frimley Green and is situated in the opposite half of the draw to a number of his key rivals.

Robert Thornton, who stormed to victory at the World Seniors Championship for the loss of only three sets, follows in the market at 2/1 and could be on a collision course to meet ‘The Power’ in the final.

Thornton, however, faces a potential Second Round clash with Kevin Painter – the man he defeated 4-2 in the Semi-Finals at The Circus Tavern earlier this year.

Former Players Champion Painter is 7/1 to claim glory, with three-time BDO World Champion Martin Adams 5/1 to go one better than his runner-up spot in Purfleet by returning to the winner’s circle at his favourite venue.

Crowd favourite Terry Jenkins, who reached the Semi-Finals in February, is 10/1 to finally end his wait for an elusive maiden televised title.

Former World Championship semi-finalist Wayne Jones is 33/1 to triumph on his World Seniors Tour debut, as is Canadian qualifier David Cameron.

Four-time Women’s World Champion Lisa Ashton is a popular each-way selection at 66/1, with recent Women’s Series event winner Trina Gulliver a 300/1 outsider.
