(Dartsnutz University: All Levels) When You Are Throwing Bad
(Excerpt from DK Darts Series/Articles)

For those having a bad day in darts who are contemplating on giving up the sport. Here's something worth realizing!

There is really truth in the saying: "One step backwards, two step forwards!". I myself had numerous episodes in my darts life from failures to more failures, and getting up again!

Here's a Basic Tip on how to recover your throw!

Back to Basics

I imagine there has been a time when whatever you do, your throw is not right. You may look at the darts, the stance or even over analyse the throw.

If this is the case perhaps take a step back metaphorically. Just remember it wasn't that long ago the darts were going where you looked. Big finishes and 11 dart legs, so what has changed? Probably nothing. So how do you get this back on line.

Set your darts up with your standard fit, plan to have 15 minutes a day practice for a week. During these sessions concentrate on nothing more than style. Perhaps choose a segment to aim at but not as small as a double or treble. Next release the dart and switch your view to watching the flight of the dart. Concentrate on being relaxed and seeing the dart fly true. Again do not worry too much about the point of contact with the board. This session is more about rekindling a relaxed throwing style and seamless flight of the darts. A week of this will help you to rediscover your throw. Please give it a go.

Hi Majeek,

Very good post thanks I'd like to add (if I may) that when our 'apparent' form does dip we must stop ourselves over-reacting. A lot of us beat ourselves up about it. Having the right mental attitude is essential throughout whether we're hitting everything or not.

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

My coach told me not to display any form of frustration or disappointment in my game as it will only make the opponent feel good and play better.

That gem is deserving of a +1 rep point.

Great advice! But isnt the saying one step forward and two steps back?

I just read this and it's all good for me. I find my throw gets sloppy and it messes with my head. I wonder what the hell I'm wasting my time for on some days. On other days it's the best it can be. I read once that you shouldn't watch the dart but I find on those days when I can't hit jack if I follow the flight of the dart it comes back to me.
I throw to relax but if I'm off the mark it only stresses me out and makes it worse. Still I struggle on and being a student of the Dartsnuts University has helped

Is good to hear that it's not just me that has ups and downs with accuracy.
For me practicing the mechanics of throwing helps with bull shooting, but I'm struggling with the other numbers.
One question I do have for more experienced players, Do you hold the dart the same way on every throw for every number?
I've noticed that where I'm holding the dart changes and am wondering if this is normal.

One trick I use when I notice I dont throw "as I used to" is, I turn of all lihts and make the room as dark that I can barely see the white segments of the board. Then just throw for 10-15min and then the problems are usually gone,
