This week, the top players travel to the New Zealand city of Hamilton for the highlight of the trio of tournaments ‘Down Under’. The New Zealand Darts Masters on 26 and 27 August is the last regular World Series tournament of this season.
After that event, the seedings for the World Series of Darts Finals will also be known. The lead is currently in the hands of Dimitri van den Bergh, but Michael van Gerwen is breathing down his neck.
