Watch Luke Woodhouse Score An Amazing Nine-Darter From His Kitchen
Luke Woodhouse made history on Saturday night by nailing the first ever kitchen nine-darter.
Woodhouse is currently ranked 57th in the world, but it didn't stop him nailing the perfect leg as he demolished favourite Gerwyn Price 5-0 on the second night of the PDC Home Tour.
Price is currently ranked number three in the world and his elimination at the hand of Woodhouse came as a shock.
Check out the footage from the Home Tour below.

Usual darts tournaments have been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic but the 'Home Tour' is still giving spectators sport to watch.
Fans have reacted to the clip and they think it could be the greatest sporting achievement anyone will earn during lockdown.
In this new world we live in one of the defining memories of these times will be the 9 darter in Luke Woodhouse's kitchen.

Fair play. But can he do it on a cold wet night against Stoke? :grin:

Every match of the tour is filmed with mobile phones and broadcast live via video calls on the PDC's own TV channel.
Following the match, Price congratulated Woodhouse and explained why he's happy the tour is taking place.
"I've enjoyed it. It has been good. I wanted to win and stay in the tournament.
"It's a bit of fun. It wasn't meant to be. Luke played fantastic and always seems to play his best against me.
"The scoring was fine but when I went for the doubles, I felt edgy.
"My advice to others is prepare well like you would for any tournament.
"The first legs were nerve-racking and it showed."
