Doubles , not landing in middle
I am hitting a fair percentage of My doubles / outs , all though, they are never really in the middle . 
They are always on the outer edges more often then not. 

Not appearing to be a clean double / out shot.

I’m still happy to hit them wherever they land , but , to notice this happening frequently, it’s  got Me wondering, should I try and tune my accuracy up? 

Feels a bit sloppy...

It could be that I’m watching too many PDC events with perfect outshots in the middle of the double.

Even when I practice doubles I’m just happy to hit them wherever and move on to the next one.

I guess it cant hurt to always try and improve your accuracy.

Has anyone else progressed from settling on being happy to hit the double, to focusing on hitting cleaner outshots ?

Thanks

Unless you have a dart in the way, should be aiming centre of the bed to allow the most margin of error.  Just use that as your aiming point - the rest will come.  Smile

Hmm!
I guess I am giving my eyes  too much of a  margin to aim for by aiming for the entire bed as a whole.

 I will try focusing on the middle point. 

I can see see how my brain justifys just going for the double As a whole, I need To re train my brain and eyes to focus on the centre.

Earlier this year, I guy in our league was having problems doubling in.  I asked him what number he was aiming for.  He replied - "I aim for the side of the board".  I replied - "that's part of your problem."  His strategy was fine, but just hoping for any double on the side is not the best idea.  You need a specific target.

Aiming for the whole double is pretty much the same thing.  A precise aiming point allows for more margin of error than a general spot. 

cheers

Hey man, 

“Ask and you shall receive “

“If you don’t ask, you don’t get .”

Something I learned a little ways back, the source of the saying that really clicked with me was from an old friend who said it when I was stuck in a jam and needed help with something in his field...one of those moments in life where a saying actually rings true . He had his struggles but carried wisdom beyond his age.

So . 

I feel no sorrow posting threads seeking answers , when I have thousands of intellectual dart nuts sitting on mountains of experience .

Thank you.

Lol!!!

You know what I mean 

I appreciate you taking your own personal experiences, and applying the relativity to my concern / question..

I think you solved this one for me, 

Hard to not be happy  with a double out hit wherever it lands.

But for practicing , it could benefit greatly to your game  To focus on centre shot doubles .

Cheers!!
Anyone else have anything to chip in please share.

Thanks!!

A double is a double, if it's in it doesn't matter where it hits in the bed, quit over thinking everything just play

I get this a lot  from you Crusher....lol....Over thinking is a evil of its own

I understand the point touching the bed still counts. My thinking was the same.

I’m still at a stage Wherre I want to improve my playing. 

I was Just wondering if I should Be trying to improve accuracy and go for clean  outshots .

I over think when I’m done playing for the night and browsing the forum before bed and my mind starts racing.

Nixxer offered valuable insight to my question , and it makes a lot of sense to focus on the centre of the Bed instead of just looking at the full bed as a target and in turn broadening my throws aim - opening up possibility for complete miss ., hopefully this will Imrpove my accuracy all around.
