Throwback To The Time Michael van Gerwen Threw Seventeen Perfect Darts

It's not Christmas until the darts is on! We've already been treated to some magnificent darts - and bloody brilliant walk-ons - including that of the mighty Dutchman.

Talking of 'MVG', lets take a trip down memory lane reliving his incredible feat from a few years ago.

Michael van Gerwen nearly carved himself into darting history back in 2012 by throwing back-to-back nine-darters, though the 2014 World champion did execute seventeen perfect darts in one of the most extraordinary moments in 'arras history, that is still talked about in hushed tones today.
