An incredible run of form saw Ian White him reach his fourth consecutive European Tour final in Zwolle where he took on Michael Van Gerwen in front of a partisan Dutch crowd.

A thrilling final went all the way to a deciding leg which was won by White, whose gutsy display ended Van Gerwen's bid for a sixth successive Dutch Darts Masters crown and also ended his 28-game unbeaten run in last-leg deciders on the European Tour.

4. Sensational Cullen lifts maiden Euro title
(ET11 European Darts Matchplay, Mannheim, Germany - September 8)

Joe Cullen (PDC Europe)

Having threatened for years, Joe Cullen finally went all the way on the European Tour in Mannheim thanks to a string of magnificent displays.

Playing some of the darts of his life, a clinical and confident showing in the final included a roof-raising 170 checkout as Cullen overcame Michael Van Gerwen 8-5 in the final.

3. Price lands first nine-darter
(ET9 Czech Darts Open, Prague, Czech Republic - June 29)

Gerwyn Price (PDC Europe)

In the PDC's first ever visit to the Czech Republic, Gerwyn Price treated the Prague crowd to his first ever competitive nine-darter in the final leg of his enthralling clash with Glen Durrant.

A bumper year for nine-darters on the European Tour also saw Michael van Gerwen, Dave Chisnall, James Wade and Steve Beaton achieve perfection.

2. Hughes emerges to claim maiden title
(ET9 Czech Darts Open, Prague, Czech Republic - June 30)

Jamie Hughes (PDC Europe)

The 2019 European Tour saw more winners than ever, but perhaps the most incredible of the nine winners was Jamie Hughes.

Competing in just his seventh European Tour event, Hughes took the Czech Darts Open by storm with a sequence of strong displays taking him all the way to the title, culminating in an 8-3 defeat of Stephen Bunting in the final.

Hughes' maiden PDC title was even more significant as it secured his maiden appearances at the World Matchplay and World Grand Prix for a resilient player who won his Tour Card at the second attempt in January 2019.

1. Suljovic makes history in Vienna
(ET10 Austrian Darts Championship, Vienna, Austria - September 1)

Mensur Suljovic (PDC Europe)

Mensur Suljovic became the first Austrian player to win a PDC title on home soil at the Austrian Darts Championship on a special night in Vienna.

A rousing comeback saw Suljovic recover from 6-3 down to win the final against Michael van Gerwen 8-7.

Having never previously won a stage match in his home city, the Austrian number one was left dreaming of becoming World Champion after lifting the title in front of his adoring fans.
