Fans joke Van Gerwen ‘bullying an old man’ after spotting score vs darts legend



DARTS fans joked Michael van Gerwen is “bullying an old man” after hammering Phil Taylor in an exhibition match.

The legendary pair rolled back the years on Saturday night as they faced each other in Chester.

Van Gerwen – the world No2 – took on Taylor in what was billed as “The Last Dance” between the iconic duo.

But it did not prove to be a classic as Taylor, 63, suffered a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of the Dutchman, 34.

Van Gerwen put on a clinic to record an average of 111.33.


Taylor, who retired in 2018 but returned to the World Senior Darts Tour last year, managed only an average of 85.12.

And darts fans joked that Van Gerwen showed no mercy against the man he enjoyed so many fierce battles with down the years.

One said: “Why did MvG play this like his life depended on it.”

Another added: “Just bullying an old man at this juncture.”

One joked: “MvG still hates Taylor then.”


Van Gerwen has three PDC World Championships to his name – the second-most by a player.


But Taylor has 16, amazingly reaching 14 consecutive World Championship finals between 1994 and 2007.

But in head-to-heads, Van Gerwen has beaten Taylor 15 times in competitive matches, drawing once and losing just eight.
