2 Darters Cannot Be Wrong

Surfing I just saw this pic:

I don't know who is holding that dart, but I copied it from some website somewhere that was talking about the Lakeside competition. I would hope that it is a current photo of some professional dart player who is actually in these competitions but the cynic in me says it is a stock photo and is probably not someone famous at all. Just a random hand.

Anyway, what is neat is that this is an exact copy of my grip. That person is holding their dart the same way I hold mine, middle finger barely touching the point, pinky sticking out a bit to the side, everything. So at least now I feel validated. If some pro out there is using my grip then it cannot be all that bad, right?

What zeeple doesn't realize is that this is an old photo of HIS OWN HAND taken one night when he lost miserably.

LOL. You're right, I recognize it now! Wait a minute... you're pulling my leg. The hand in the picture has a thick british accent..

Looks a bit like darts legend Eric Bristow's grip

Well, as to it beinng Jelle, I don't think so. During the Lakeside comp I scoured the dart sites for news of the results and in one place I saw Jelle throwing darts with Pear shaped flights. So I do not think that is him...

I'll go a google image search for Bristow and see if any of his darts are similar in appearance...
