JOHN PART hit a nine-dart finish in defeat to Mark Webster on the opening night of the Sky Bet Mobile World Matchplay on Saturday, as World Champion Adrian Lewis edged past Kevin Painter in a classic at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Canadian ace Part, a three-time World Champion, became only the third player behind Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld to achieve a nine-darter in the 18-year history of the World Matchplay.

Part is now in line to claim a £10,000 bonus should no other player hit a nine-darter during the remaining eight days of the tournament in Blackpool, although that would be double his prize money of £5,000 after he went on to lose 10-8 to Mark Webster.

JOHN PART won his second Players Championship of 2011 with a whitewash of Denis Ovens in the Austrian Open decider on Saturday in Wiener Neustadt.

The Canadian had picked up a £6,000 title in Derby in February with a flawless 6-0 win over Mark Walsh, and repeated the scoreline in the final in Austria to see off Ovens.

Part also claimed the notable scalp of 15-time World Champion Phil Taylor in a brilliant day of darts, as the world number 30 ensured qualification for July’s World Matchplay, as well as the year’s other televised major championships.
