Sparky wins the World Cup Men's Singles darts title
Wes Harms beat Steven Bunting by 7 – 6 to claim the World Cup Men's Singles darts title in what was an intriguing tug of war battle.
Having beaten World No.3 Tony O'Shea by 6 -2 in the Semi Final in another high quality encounter The Dutch Maestro was hotly favoured and Harms got off to a flying start, catching Bunting cold moving 5 – 1 up before Bunting could blink. However, such is Buntings current pedigree as the BDO's World Ranked No.1 that he soon fired off 4 rapid legs, pulling the game back to 5 -4.
Wes slipped a solid 15 dart leg to go 2 legs clear, but it was Buntings turn to fire straight back with 2 rapid legs in succession leaving the match poised at 6 – all and a Bull up for the deciding leg.
Wes Won the Bull and went straight off with a Ton, that Bunting couldn't match, then back to back 140's from Wes saw him go way clear leaving 121 that he clipped the wire for, retuning to nail double 9 for the title in 13 darts.
A clearly emotional Wes Harms looked to the sky and cross his chest before embracing Steve after what was a superb final played by 2 quality players.
Wes said "I've had a really tough year with some changes going on, and I haven't had the time to dedicate as much as I'd like to my practice. However, the last few weeks have been more normal and I've done some really good work on the practice board so I came to Canada confident again, and I'm over the moon to be the World Cup Singles Champion especially beating Stephen who is the current ranked BDO World No.1”
