There Is Only One Phil Taylor VideoDart WM 2010/2011 *There is only one Phil Taylor*
Instead, Taylor stayed in a four-bedroom, newly built house on a close a few miles from where he grew up. The house, he told me, was one of 14 he owned, including the large house in Stoke his wife still lives in.
Each property was bought for cash. He has never had a mortgage. A burly man named Shaun Rutter, who was missing half his right ear, answered the door.
Rutter is an old friend from Stoke who now lives in the spare room of the house, helps out with odd jobs, and practices darts with Taylor.
He invited me in and asked if I would like coffee. The house was immaculate, like a show home. Taylor cannot abide clutter.
He mentioned more than once that his house was filling up with ladders sent to him by his sponsor, Werner ladders. There were some pictures of his children and grandchildren around, but not much darts memorabilia and no trophies.
Taylor sat on a large corner sofa, in tracksuit bottoms and a polo shirt from under which a parcel of his white flesh protruded.
He has struggled with his weight for years, and is a faddy dieter. A vast flat-screen TV took up several square feet of wall in between two display cabinets and was at that moment tuned to Bargain Hunt.
He has a friendly, boyish demeanour and we happily chatted about this and that: Without prompting, and without a discernible change in register, he told me that his mother, Liz, was gravely ill.
Taylor had moved her into a nursing home a third of the mile from the Werrington house, somewhere she could get hour care.
He visited her every day. He was born in , the only child of Liz and Doug, a ceramics worker. The family were then moved to a more comfortable council house.
Taylor has good memories of his early years. But the houses were knackered, you know, nobody had anything. Nobody had any money.
All the men went to work, the ladies stayed at home, looked after the kids and what-not. And the front doors were open.
Taylor progressed through school with no great distinction, leaving when he was In the s, there were still many mines and potbanks where young men could find work.
The mines did not appeal to Taylor. He had hoped to become a policeman, but the cut-off height for entry into the local force was 5ft 8in, and he missed out by a quarter-inch.
His mother worked next door, in a pottery, and Phil told me he got the job because the boss of the sheet-metal factory fancied her.
Meanwhile, Taylor was discovering that he possessed a natural talent for darts. His mum and dad had a board in the house and both enjoyed the game. From the age of 10, Taylor started to play with his father, whose pub team regularly won the local leagues.
But he could trounce the older men. I used to beat them easy. I was only a lad. In his late teens and early 20s, he was more interested in spending his weekend evenings in the discotheques of Stoke.
It was in this period he met Yvonne. Bristow was trying to cure himself by practising in marathon sessions.
He said Taylor could keep him company. And he got better. Soon, Taylor was playing darts for his county, Staffordshire. Bristow decided to sponsor Taylor to play at professional tournaments in north America, advancing him several thousand pounds for flights and hotels, in the expectation that Taylor would repay him when he started winning.
It was the start of a complicated and sometimes fractious relationship between the two men that continues to this day. Bristow could be a hard taskmaster.
In the early days, when Taylor was at his first overseas tournaments, he would sometimes call Bristow up to tell him that he had been beaten in the final of a tournament.
Bristow would tell him to call him back when he had won something, and put the phone down. I had to get his mind strong. More damaging to their future relationship was the issue of money.
It is a story Taylor has told to Jonathan Ross, as well as to other interviewers. But Bristow told me that Taylor had never paid him back the loan.
Taylor went on to achieve much more than his mentor. When he beat Bristow in to win his first world championship final, Bristow got a call from his own father, who said: When Taylor says the game needs him, he is barely exaggerating.
His rise and the rise of darts have been inseparable. In , when Taylor was born, darts barely existed as a professional sport.
Since , there had been a de facto national championship, sponsored by the News of the World, but there was no meaningful circuit.
The idea of being a full-time darts player would have been laughable. Colour television changed and made darts. Waddell became the voice of darts and perhaps the funniest commentator in television.
By the end of the s, however, viewing figures had dwindled and advertisers had fled. Sponsors were put off by the reputation of darts as a game for fat, boozy men.
When Taylor started his professional career, television coverage of darts had shrunk to a single tournament: In , a downbeat Waddell told a reporter from the Daily Mail: I do not see any light at all in the gloom.
The players were frustrated. Tournaments were well-attended, but the stars found it difficult to make money. Priestley remembers the two men would share a room for the duration of a cash-prize tournament, and then dump whatever money they had won on the bed on the night the competition ended and evenly split the dollars between them.
They began to hold their own world championships, broadcast by Sky. When the sports promoter Barry Hearn walked into the Circus Tavern in Purfleet, Essex during the world championship, he looked around and said: When I asked Hearn why Taylor had been so much better than anybody else on the circuit, he gave me a straightforward answer: Certainly, Taylor is unusually driven.
After his experiences with Bristow, he thought it was normal to practice for several hours a day. Back then, very few other darts players threw so many darts.
There was even a board in the bedroom Phil shared with Yvonne. Some nights he refused to go to bed until he had hit a particular milestone: On the day he was married, he played a county darts match in the afternoon before returning for the wedding reception in the evening.
He could continue to earn good money as a darts pundit or ambassador of some kind. Taylor often complains about the demands placed upon him by his schedule.
But when we met for the first time last year, Taylor told me that his commitment to practice had not dipped — despite the stress of his divorce and the worsening health of his mother.
In fact, he said that darts had helped him navigate these crises, because of the intense concentration required to play well. When I was at his house, he and Rutter began a marathon practice session in the spare room.
While the physical process of throwing darts may be soothing for Taylor, it does not explain his willingness to continue as a pro.
Barney and Phil went onto have some outstanding battles with Taylor winning on most occasions despite Barney winning the most important of all.
Taylor got revenge on the Dutchman in in the final once again. Then was the greatest of all. The Power averaged to stand on top of the World of Darts once again.
Phillip Douglas Taylor finishes his career with over televised trophies and over titles worldwide. Have a good retirement Phil and goodbye!

Taylor simply demolished all that went before him. He won the world title 11 out of 12 years, losing only when new rivals such as Raymond van Barneveld or John Part toppled him.
But, for as good as those two are and were, they were unable to become a dominant force. There was only one Phil Taylor.
The great Waddell once said trying to beat him was akin to "eating candy floss in a wind tunnel". But Taylor's trailblazing success had made darts an enviable trade.
Hearn's model was that money was there for those who wanted to earn it and many did. The more you were willing to travel and practice, the more you could win and earn.
The gap started to close.
