Drawing dart back to dominant eye
Is it considered to be beneficial to draw the dart back to your dominant eye?

This doesn't make sense to me because the effect seems to be that vision from your dominant eye is then blocked?

It is unavoidable. Just watch the pros. Your eye and target are the end points of a straight line. The arm/hand/dart must follow it. You're not about to move your arm/hand/dart off the line when you want to push your dart directly towards the target are you?

It isn't unavoidable for people like Barney.

But yeah skinnygav, Ive thought that too. I wish my throw had my dart a little lower so I could still see over it. The way I throw I block my vision pretty thoroughly.

You're right Dmott, you can draw the dart back to the side of your head like Barney.

My bad. It is avoidable.

Extend both hands forward of your body and place the hands together making a small triangle (approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch per side) between your thumbs and the first knuckle like this.
With both eyes open, look through the triangle and center something such as a doorknob in the triangle.
Close your left eye. If the object remains in view, you are right eye dominant. If closing your right eye keeps the object in view, you are left eye dominant.

overlap your hands so that a small triangle is formed between your two pointing fingers and your thumbs.

with both eyes open look at an object 10 feet away through the triangle.

close your left eye

open your left eye and close your right eye.

With one eye you will still see the object in the triangle. That is you dominate eye.

Typically your eye dominance correlates to your hand dominance.

As an infant you see stronger with one eye and you use the hand closest to the eye developing the muscles in that arm more.

Now that's not a 100% some people are cross dominate. Right arm and left eye or vise versa.

Hmm. I throw darts right handed. I throw a frisbee left handed. So when I'm playing frisbee golf it's 100% lefty.

When I played baseball I was a switch hitter but threw righty.

And a really strange one is that my left arm is physically smaller than my right but it's a beast in strength. My left hand and arm is much stronger than my right.

I'm weird lol

Nice. I used to say just point to something 10 ft away. Then close one eye and the other. The eye that lines up with the finger and the target is your dominant eye. It does not matter which hand you use to point.

Keep throwing darts?

I recall hearing that Barney writes with his left hand, but throws darts with his right -- perhaps to have his throwing arm be on the same side as his dominant eye? The guy that taught me to play darts was the same way. Wrote right handed, dominant left eye, threw left handed....

Cy, what if you learned to play left handed?

If anyone would succeed at such a thing, you would....
