Top 10 averages in this year’s televised tournaments dominated by Gerwyn Price

Three of the top six averages in televised tournaments this year have been posted by Gerwyn Price. However, it’s not the Welshman but the current world champion who tops the list.

We are three months into the new year, and we've already seen some incredible darting drama. 

Here, we take a look at the top 10 averages which have been posted in televised tournaments. This includes the Masters, UK Open, the ongoing Premier League season and the final three rounds of the World Darts Championship which took place in 2022.

It doesn't, however, include any ProTour events.

#10 Dirk van Duijvenbode (105.75)

Dirk Van Duijvenbode celebrates against Ross Smith during day ten of the William Hill World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace, London.

Dutchman Dirk van Duijvenbode kicks off our list with an impressive average of 105.78.

The Titan posted the figure during his fifth-round clash against Germany's Martin Schindler at the 2022 UK Open.

The Dutchman powered to a 10-4 victory, but crashed out of the tournament in the next round, losing 10-2 to eventual champion Danny Noppert.

#9 Joe Cullen (106.30)

It's fair to say that 2022 has got off to a strong start for Joe Cullen. The Bradford-born player has already won three tournaments, including the 2022 Masters.

It was during his championship run in Milton Keynes that he posted his 106.30 average.

That performance came against Gary Anderson in the second round, and it certainly served Cullen well as he powered to a 10-1 victory.

#8 Michael van Gerwen (106.48)

Michael Van Gerwen celebrates in his semi-final against Daryl Gurney during the Premier League Play-Offs at The O2, London.

Michael van Gerwen is the only man on the list to make the top 10 despite losing the match in which he set his highest average.

Mighty Mike posted a figure of 106.48 during his Premier League semi-final clash with Gerwyn Price in Belfast (Night three).

His efforts proved inconsequential as the Iceman prevailed 6-5 and went on to win the final against James Wade.

#7 Jonny Clayton (106.64)

A week earlier, it was Jonny Clayton who denied MVG a place in the Premier League final with a brilliant average of 106.64.

The Welshman lit up the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool as he secured a 6-4 win over the Green Machine.

Clayton went on to win the final, beating Cullen 6-4.

#6 Gerwyn Price (106.66)

Gerwyn Price in action against Stephen Buntingduring day fifteen of the William Hill World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace, London.

Gerwyn Price's first appearance on the list concerns his sixth-round performance at the 2022 UK Open.

The Iceman cruised to a 10-3 victory over Callan Rydz having posted a three-dart average of 106.66.

The Welshman was unable to replicate this standard in the quarter-final and ultimately went out at the hands of Michael Smith.

#5 Gerwyn Price (108.54)

Speaking of Price and Smith, both men put on a superb performance when they clashed on night three of the Premier League.

Bully Boy, who averaged 103.55 himself, was unable to stop the Iceman from booking his place in the semi-final as Price bagged a 6-3 win.

Incredibly, his average of 108.54 wasn't even his best of the night. But more on that later.

#4 Adrian Lewis (108.65)

It's fair to say that the last few seasons have not exactly been memorable for Adrian Lewis.

The two-time world champion has continued to struggle this year, but there have been a few flashpoints of his brilliance.

For instance, Jackpot posted an average of 108.65 during his 6-0 rout of Fabian Schmutzler in the second round of the UK Open. Unfortunately for Lewis, he bowed out in the very next round.

#3 Rowby-John Rodriguez 108.66

Austria's Rowby-John Rodriguez takes third place on our list following his thunderous performance at the UK Open.

The man known as Little John set a three-dart average of 108.66 against Bradley Brooks in the first round of the tournament.

Incredibly, his form tumbled two games later as he averaged just 79 in his third-round 6-0 loss to Ryan Meikle.

#2 Gerwyn Price (108.90)

Price's third appearance on the list includes his sensational 108.90 average from night three of the Premier League.

The SSE Arena in Belfast was treated to a classic as the Iceman beat Michael van Gerwen 6-5 to seal his place in the final.

Unsurprisingly, Price won the entire night after going to average 105 in the last match of the night against James Wade.

#1 Peter Wright (113.02)

This wouldn't be a very good list if we didn't have the defending world darts champion Peter Wright on it.

The Scotsman booked his place at the top with a stupendous 113.02 three-dart average.

Snakebite posted those incredible numbers during his 6-1 victory over Jonny Clayton in the final of night one in the Premier League.
