Target Darts.

First dart double or outside marker than double
So why do I see a pros players throw high on double tops ?
I doubt the pros miss double tops by a inch on purpose if they can hit it first go
Missing outside for sure . It’s called being cautious, it’s a lot easier to miss outside the double than go straight for the double. For me atleast.

But with 3 darts in hand I would just aim for outside the double / the double

I get it though. I would rather throw my first dart at the double and miss inside, and have two darts left, rather than throw outside a marker than throw inside and have one left.

Having pissed away a dart.

And that is exactly the correct answer!!!!
The standard of playing is much different .

Not read the thread properly, but why anyone would try and throw a marker dart just outside before going for the double is beyond me - if you are that good you can throw a marker dart where you want it then you should also be good enough to just hit the double as well, so just go for it

You can always do what I do, close your eyes, pray, and throw ..... it never works, but at least it's a plan.   Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
If you know what I'm doing, don't tell me .... I find bliss in my confusion.

Agreed. It would be like someone trying to start shooting from half court like Stephen Curry instead of shooting from the three point line.

I don’t think you’re seeing pro’s throw high on double tops intentionally either, if anything you are seeing nerves clicking in at a tense point during the match.

I get what you are saying, and I think it maybe the overuse of commentators calling things “ great markers “ etc. 

For me I couldn’t do it, have to go right for it even if it’s a double I am not fond of.

The only time I throw at a double as a marker is D1 with two/three darts left or an odd double(D9, D11, etc.) with two darts left. Easier to work my way down from there.
