Gerwyn Price Wiki – Biography

Gerwyn Price is a Welsh professional darts player who competes in Professional Darts Corporation events. He broke into the top 32 on the PDC Order of Merit in 2016 and soon afterward won his first Pro Tour title.

Gerwyn Price accused Simon Whitlock of ‘pathetic’ slow play after overcoming a mid-match wobble to make the last eight of the PDC World Championship at Alexandra Palace. Welshman Price, the number three seed, overcame Whitlock 4-2 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in his career.

Whitlock, the self-styled Wizard of Oz from New South Wales, lacked magic on the doubles as three wayward shots cost him the first set and Price took advantage of the fifth attempt.

He missed another five doubles to stay in the second set, but Price went right off the boil and lost four consecutive legs as Whitlock reduced the deficit to 2-1.

The pair exchanged sets before Price, the two-time Grand Slam champion, produced some belated brilliance to claim the sixth set 3-0.

‘From the off I was rubbish and Simon wasn’t any better,’ Price told Sky Sports.

Gerwyn Price accused sorry to Simon Whitlock

‘It was slowed down to a pathetic pace, but I’ll learn from it and do better the next time I come up against that situation.

‘I like a good flow and a good game, but some people just try to drag you down.’
