David Cameron beat Phil Taylor 6-3 in the final of the World Senior Darts Masters on Sunday to be crowned champion. Phil "The Power" Taylor's wait for a maiden Masters title will have to wait until at least July after he fell at the final hurdle in the World Senior Darts Masters. The 14-time world champion, and one of the most decorated darts players of all time, was hoping to go the distance this time around after falling out in the early stages of the World Senior Darts Championship earlier this year. He was a clear favourite on the night but was clearly not in top form as Cameron claimed a relatively easy win that could have been by an even greater margin.

The match began with the first four sets being shared before Taylor fell apart somewhat and Cameron took full advantage. He could have won 6-2 but squandered an easy chance to win the eighth frame and allowed Taylor to make it relatively close again at 5-3. However, he composed himself and held his nerve and his throw by checking out with 94 in the final game to win 6-3. No one can say the Canadian didn't deserve it after he also beat Kevin Painter and Robert Thornton o the way to the final. The next event on the Seniors Tour calendar is the World Matchplay in Hull between 1-3 July.
