GOLDEN HARVEST RESULTS

TAYLOR DOES IT AGAIN !

Having set the scene with an impressive victory over Peter Manley at the Quebec Open (Retsinas Memorial) in Montreal last week, Phil ĎThe Powerí Taylor thundered his way to a second sucessive title in Saskatoon, beating Andy Fordham in the final.
Taylor breezed through his bracket all the way to the semi finals never dropping a set and taking out Rory Orvis, Peter Manley, Bob Anderson and Rod Harrington in that order along the way. The reigning champion then played Andy Jenkins in the first semi final match, after Jenkins took out Terry OíConnell, Mocco Maes, Colin Lloyd and Ronnie Baxter to get there. Jenkins gave Taylor his toughest match of the day, taking one set off him in the best of 7 sets.
When asked how he felt about his game against Phil Taylor in the semi final match, Andy Jenkins said, ďI threw appallingly to be honest with you. Philís a good dart player. We all known heís the best in the world. Iíve played on TV before, but Iíve never played Phil before. Itís just amazing to watch him from behind.Ē After the semi final Taylor was equally complimentary about the up and coming Jenkins; ďIíve been in the final three times now, sorry, Andy. To be quite honest with you, the field itself has the best players in the world coming to this tournament. This is a hard tournament. Anybody who gets to the semi finals deserves to be there, I can tell you, because itís a real strong field. Iím absolutely proud to be in the final.
"Having won the World Championship in January and the Retsinas Memorial this past weekend in Montreal, Iím enjoying this a bit now. Itís a great living to be honest with you. We travel the world and see all these places, Las Vegas and Canada, and anybody can play darts. Itís just a great way to make a living.Ē

The second menís semi final match was between Roland Scholten and Andy Fordham. Scholten got to the top four through Scott Cummings, Ritchie Burnett, John Part and Chris White. Fordham took out Greg Rogers, Peter Evison, Paul Williams and Jamie Harvey. Fordham got the jump on Scholten in the match going up three sets to nil. It was only a matter of time before he cleaned up the remaining set to advance to the final to meet Taylor. Roland Scholten said after the match: ďI just thought of the match as normal, but the darts seemed a bit long to me and it took a long time to adjust to it. After all, I just started to more or less practice and see where they hopefully came in and then I had to keep them going. Andy was a step ahead of me. "I just did my best and thatís all I could do. Even down three sets, I never gave in. I got one back and I had shots in the next set. I missed that one too, and that was it. He beat me fair and square and I wish him all the luck in the world in the final.Ē Fordham commented on his run to the final: ďIíve enjoyed the competition here. Itís been brilliant. To reach the final with so many great players here is a great feeling. In my match against Roland, going three sets up was a bonus for me. The last one is always the hardest one they say. Roland took one back, but I just tried to keep going.Ē When asked what he thinks is the best way to prepare for his match against Phil Taylor, Fordham responded, ďGet a lump of wood and hit him over the head with it. Thatís about it.Ē

Taylor took to the menís final match with such determination, there were more than one or two present who wondered, if what he was doing was humanly possible. Taylor took the first set, two straight in 14 and 12 darts. He took the second even faster in 13 and 12 darts. The third set went to Taylor in 14 and 13 darts, two straight, and he closed the match with 17 and 15 darters. He had shots in the 17 darter to take it in 12. As it was, Taylor averaged 36.4 points per dart and never allowed Fordham a single shot at a double.
The menís final didnít go the way Fordham wanted, but he reflected, ďWell, I donít think I played that bad really, but when you play someone like Phil, thereís not a lot you can do. I mean heís the best player in the world, and when he has one of his special games, then youíve got no chance. If he keeps practicing heíll be alright !Ē

The importance of winning the Golden Harvest to Taylor was evident in his comments afterwards: ďItís one of the biggest world ranking tournaments that we do and to win this one is really the beginning of the season. Itís a good bonus and the money is fantastic. It gives you good ranking points, so Iím probably up there now as number two or number one in the world. ďItís now on to the next one in Belgium or Holland, so itís a good boost for the beginning of the season.

As this tournament grows, the standard is improving each year and thereís more and more world-class players that canít get into the tournament, because they wait too long to enter, and to get to the semi finals and finals is really fantastic. Itís as good as being in the World Championship.Ē

WRIGHT STUFF IN SASKATOON

Tricia Wright spent this weekend practising her darts with a certain Phil Taylor and the winning form seemed to rub off as she clinched her first ever Nally Golden Harvest title Ė at the first time of asking.
In the semi finals Wright faced Francisca Hoenselaar. Wright defeated Joanne Luke, Sharon Colclough, and Kristina Korpi to get to the semi final while Hoenselaar went through Carli Marion, Carolyn Mars, and Trina Gulliver.
The match went the distance, down to the third game of the fifth set, and Wright was able to reach and hit the double first. Hoenselaar had her chances along the way, but failed to convert. Having exited the competition, Hoenselaar was left ruing missed opportunities to take the match: ďWe had a good match. Tricia threw well. However, when I feel that give the games away and lose the match because of it, I just need to get away and take 20 minutes to get over it. Then Iím fine with it.Ē
The second womenís semi final was a battle between two who have fought this kind of match several times before against each other. The Canadian favourite, Patricia Farrell, was up against the US champion, Stacy Bromberg. Bromberg took out Mandy Fleck, Vicky Pruim, and Sandra Pollett to reach the stage while Farrell defeated Robin Curry, Amy Earle, and Crissy Howat along her run.
Farrell delighted the crowd with a 3 sets to one victory to advance to the final to meet Tricia Wright. Bromberg, naturally was disappointed with her display: ďI had a bit of bad luck in the match, most of it was my own fault, missing doubles. Some of it just happens, thatís the way it goes. Sometimes it gets away from you. The game is so incredibly mental that you literally hear little murmurs and you pick up all kinds of things that interrupt your concentration. But thatís part of the game and you have to stay with it.Ē Farrell on the other hand, was on her way to the final: ďI feel great about getting to the finals. Iíve played Stacy before in the semi finals and finals. Weíve always had a good match. We were a little bit up and down today and I know she had a little trouble with her doubles and I just had to capitalize on that. The main thing is to keep your focus. I know I have to play Tricia Wright in the final. Iíve never played her before, and I look forward to a good match.Ē

It wasnít to be for the Canadian however and Farrell dropped the womenís final match to Wright three sets to one. ďIt was a pretty good match. We were both a little bit off our game, but Tricia was a bit more on that off. This is a great tournament and Iíd just like to thank all the sponsors and organizers, the dart players for coming and all my fans for cheering me on.Ē This was Wrightís moment of course Ė not bad for a first visit to the Golden Harvest. "I must be honest, I never imagined winning this tournament with all the good players out there. I just had to keep my cool and hit my doubles when they counted. I havenít played very well today. Taking nothing away from Patricia, she could have won the games I did. It was nerves that got to me, but I managed to hit the doubles at the right time. Itís just awesome, and Iíll definitely be back next year.Ē

After the award ceremonies, Tricia Wright and Phil Taylor were asked to comment on their victories. Wright began by saying, ďIíd just like to thank everyone, and Phil Taylor for the daily practice, even though he slaughtered me. Iíve made so many friends and Iíll definitely be back.Ē We have been practicing in the morning together and we both won the tournament. Before we go on any further, Iíd really like to thank all the sponsors, and the organizers for putting on this great tournament.Ē
