Rix Motor Company is proud to sponsor Gary Anderson, who claimed his first professional PDC World Darts title in a thrilling battle with 16-time world champ Phil “The Power” Taylor at the Alexandra Palace last weekend. With the match ebbing and flowing between the two, it was anyone’s game down to the final throws with Gary, nicknamed The Flying Scotsman, holding his verve to seal the victory.
Gary started off the match the better, winning the first set three legs to two, and taking a three sets to one lead in the early going. That was until Taylor’s experience saw him reel off the next two sets to level the match, and then take a 4-3 lead. Some heckling from the crowd upset Gary in the middle stages, but he was able to fight back and take a commanding 6-4 lead, just a few throws from the title, before Taylor came roaring back at him again to level the match and force a deciding set.
In only his second appearance in a world final, Gary managed to beat the 2013 champion with some astonishing darts, cheered on by a huge crowd, and watched by millions on TV. On his black shirt with tartan sleeves, the Rix Motor Company logo sat proudly on his chest, and we are delighted to be associated with such a dedicated and honest sportsman.
