BRENDAN created history as the first player to achieve a nine-dart finish in the double-start format at the 2010 World Grand Prix as the highlight of his career to date.

The Northern Irish ace made his initial breakthrough in 2003 as a qualifier for the UK Open, and went on to join the PDC circuit on a full-time basis four years later.

However, it would be the 2010 World Grand Prix which proved career-changing for Dolan, as he landed the first double-start nine-darter in a semi-final win over James Wade.

Although Dolan went on to lose out to Phil Taylor in his first televised final, the achievement proved the launchpad for his rise into the world's top 16.

Dolan reached both the European Championship and World Grand Prix semi-finals in 2012 and won five PDC ranking titles during the next two years.

A two-time World Cup of Darts semi-finalist whilst representing Northern Ireland, Dolan has also reached the UK Open and Grand Slam of Darts quarter-finals.
