Mike Warburton does the Double

Mike Warburton has done the double and won both the Irish Open and the High Performance Roofing Open singles titles at the Killarney Darts Festival.

Johnny McEvoy, Mike Warburton and Ryan Hogarth

Mike beat Scotland’s Ryan Hogarth 7-6 after a last leg decider. Mike was 5-3 down and could have been more but for a missed double top by Ryan.

Mike got it back to 5-5 again for Ryan to put in a great leg and move to within one leg at 6-5 but Mike showed his resolve and slotted in double 16 for a 6-6. He then won the last leg in style after Ryan hit a 131 to set up 36, but Mike came back for 24 and ended up hitting double 6 for the double win weekend.

Well done Mike Warburton, and indeed as I said yesterday, he is a dark horse for the BDO worlds at the Indigo O2 in January.
