Coming in just short of number one is 2018 World Champion, Rob Cross. In 2016 Cross competed at the UK Open as a Riley’s amateur qualifier, just under two years later he was champion of the world. Possibly the quickest rise to prominence in darts, but not the best PDC debut season.

The former electrician annihilated idol Phil Taylor in the final, and won a Ally Pally classic in his semi-final meeting with Michael van Gerwen, stunning the world as he won the World Championships in his debut year.

Aside from that astounding victory, Cross reached the semi’s at Minehead’s PC finals and lost out to MvG in the final of the European Championship, but all would be forgotten as he produced one of the most memorable runs in the premiere event to secure World glory, but not quite enough to place number one in our list.
