- THE WIZARD
2012 European Darts Champion Simon Whitlock has established himself as arguably the best darts player ever born in the southern hemisphere. The Australian is a regular threat in every event he plays, having reached three major finals before taking victory in the ParyPoker.net European Championships.
The Wizard has won a whole host of titles on both sides of the globe and has become a firm fan's favourite after reaching World Championship finals in both the BDO and PDC.
He has also been runner-up in the Premier League and World Cup of Darts.
In 2008, he went one step further and reached the World Championship final but was beaten by Mark Webster.
Whitlock was selected to play in the prestigious Premier League again in 2011. He also became the first player to hit perfect nine dart finishes in successive ProTour events.
In 2012, Whitlock enjoyed another brilliant run at the World Championship when he reached the semi-final.
In September 2012, Whitlock ended his wait for televised title when he defeated Wez Newton 11-5 to be crowned as European Darts Champion.
