The details


Conrad Daniels (born September 11, 1941) is an American darts player who has competed since the 1970s.

Darts career

Daniels first came to prominence when he won The Indoor League darts tournament in 1975, defeating the then reigning World Masters champion, Cliff Inglis, in the final.

Daniels appeared at the first three World Professional Darts Championships - but only managed to win one match. However, that match was very notable as he beat highly fancied 20-year-old Eric Bristow, who was top seed for the event, who was very bothered by Daniels' slow pace of play. Bristow would eventually go on to become World Champion five times. It was also the very first match ever played in the World Championships.

Daniels lost to fellow American Nicky Virachkul in the next round. He would then suffer first round defeats in the 1980 World Championship to Rab Smith of Scotland and in 1981 to Doug McCarthy of England. He would never manage to qualify for the event again. He also played in the 1978 Winmau World Masters, beating Dave Lee to reach the quarter finals of the event, losing to Tony Brown.

He took up darts in 1964 playing the American version of the sport until switching to the steel tip game in 1965. During the 1970s he was based in Trenton, New Jersey. In 1975 he won the US Open and the North American Open. He also won the men's event on the Indoor League show broadcast by Yorkshire Television.

Whilst he was never a major force, he still plays darts some 30 years after his greatest achievement and attempted to qualify for the World Series of Darts in 2006, but missed out.
