Grouping your Darts
I credit this routine to An American pro George S.

Grouping phase 1

This routine is for improving your dart grouping like the name indicates. You start off with number 20 and use all the numbers on the board. You shoot only at the large segment of the number! triples , doubles and small segment don't count you must place at least 2 darts out of three to mark. You must do this 5 times to close out the number. You shoot in order and if you miss you must move on to the next number .

Example: You get three darts at the 20 , you only hit it one time = no mark, next number 19 you hit 2 = 1mark, next 18 and you hit 3 = 1mark and so on and so forth. You keep going around until all numbers are closed.
Before some of you think this is too easy try it hehe. Remember only the large segment counts . This is an excellent routine for beginners and accomplished players.

I need around 20 mins for 9 numbers (20-12), five hit for segment. Is this good?

I been doing this today and I realize now wow how much practice I really need.
I did modify it a touch though.
If I land 1 I put a (.) 2 I put a (/) 3 (o)

These I can go back and review it and see my progress as well as which number I hit less and need more work with.

I was looking at this practice routine and want to give it a try tonight after work. My question has to do with the sections I highlighted. I read it as the player needs to make 5 marks per number and can only move on to the next number when we do this. In your example you state we get 3 darts at each number and if we do not mark we move to the next number. Keeping track of marks we make as we go.

So which is it? Do we go at each number until we get 5 marks? Or do we just get 3 darts at each number hoping to mark out as many numbers as possible?

If you have finished 1 number you dont shoot at it again.

Example.

20- ///
19- //
18-///// (closed)
17-
16- /
15-////
14-/
13-/


Here you stop shooting darts at the 18 as it is closed. And you keep shooting at the rest until they all are closed.

This is the only practice routine I do btw. Thanks to Larry I have upgraded it a bit. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

You keep going around the board until you close all numbers. Regardless of whether or not you get a mark or not, hit 2 out of 3 darts in the fat single, you move to the next number

It says you need 5 marks to close. It does not say stay until you close. The reason the closing part is important is because once you close a number, by getting 5 marks, you skip it while you continue rotating through all of the numbers
