World Grand Prix 2006

In 2006, the tournament is all about the Premier League in 2007. After the World Grand Prix the top six in the world will be sure of a place in the prestigious competition. However, all pre tournament favourites for that place go out prematurely and it is outsider Terry Jenkins who takes a Premier League spot. He reaches the final in Ireland by beating Peter Manley in the semi-finals. In the final, Taylor is his opponent who is unbeatable again this year.

For Peter Manley it is the fifth time he loses in the semi-finals, a record. After two good years the number one in the world, Colin Lloyd loses in the first round this year. Dennis Priestley repeats his performance from a year earlier when he reaches the semi-final. For Priestley it is the third time in this tournament, but unfortunately he meets his biggest rival for his second time in the semi final. final Phil Taylor is again a bit too better than Dennis 'The Menace'. With the victory in 2006, Taylor has now won seven of the nine Grand Prix’, an incredible percentage.
