Watch Phil Taylor hit the World Matchplay's first-ever nine-darter in 2002.
Fifteen-time champion Taylor will be at Winter Gardens between July 22-30, live on Sky Sports - his final challenge before retiring at the end of the year.
What to watch on new Sky Sports
The new channels launch on Tuesday - and there's a fantastic range of programming to kick-off the new era...
We've rolled the clock back to 2002 when Taylor played Chris Mason in the competition's quarter-final, and thrilled the Blackpool crowd by hitting a nine-darter.
He would eventually claim the title, beating John Lowe then John Part, but the 2002 World Matchplay will always be remembered for Taylor's nine historic arrows.
A new Sky Sports is coming
From Tuesday, Sky Sports will be better than ever with a range of new dedicated channels...
This year, Taylor's return should come with extra emotion due to his imminent plans to bring the curtain down on his record-setting career. He must again contend with world No 1 Michael van Gerwen, who beat him in last year's final, for the title.
Don't forget that you can see all the action from the World Matchplay Darts in Blackpool, live on Sky Sports. The arrows run from Saturday July 22 right through until the final on Sunday July 30.
