Darts Glossary
I can't wait to start using some of these terms. I heard a player say to another we're Desmond. I asked him what is that? He said two games apiece.

Yeah Desmond Tutu, I've heard football fans use that one.
Last time I played in the pub I hit D4 going for D18, than D9 for D14 then D5 with my last dart to finish and my opponent said I was lucky  infront ( well I think thats what he said ) LOL

I believe the origin of the term comes from the slang for reaching a 100 MPH when driving a car or motorbike, it was called 'doing a ton' and from there I reckon it was used by players and scorers for hitting a 100 in darts.

My father Merlin, once told me that "You should end up pointing to what you were aiming at when you've released the Dart."
