    Last month, after I'd tweaked my stance, my grip, and follow through, I decided to focus on shooting good 20s.

    I have always had a problem of shooting too low, so I came up with a very simple practice routine.

    Shoot 100 20s. Each dart must land in the Triple or the fat 20 or it doesn't count. I shoot until 100 darts land in the trip or fat.

    I've seen steady improvement the last couple of weeks and I'll continue to use this in my practice. I've seen myself get tighter groups and less stray darts.

    With the way I'm shooting 20's right now, this exercise might take me a few hours! :lol:

    (19's, however, I could finish very quickly. :wink: )

    BTW - Just to be clear, because you're trying to avoid throwing low, a dart into the skinny single 20 doesn't count, correct?

    Yup, skinny 20s don't count. Keeps me honest.

    For those shooters like Phil who want to stack the darts, this routine isn't ideal. But for shooters like Adrian Lewis, Wayne Mardle and others who want the first dart or two to be a guide above the trip, this routine is good.

    I shoot 100 20s per routine, I count them all , but if I am looking to perfect my throw I only count trips, that is a 2nd drill I do I will throw 50 or 100 at trip only counting trips. I want to see how many I can get out of say 100 so far out of 100 darts my best trip set was 22 trip 20s so I guess you could say I hit 22% of my 20s as trip 20 when I put it that way that sucks lol , but I suppose we have to start somewhere .lol , oh yeah did I mention that I have only been playing for 8 months lol
