STEPHEN enjoyed a rapid rise after joining the PDC circuit in 2014.

A two-time World Masters winner before claiming victory in the 2014 Lakeside Championship, Bunting made an immediate impact on the PDC circuit with victory in his opening PDC ProTour event at a UK Open Qualifier.

The Sydney Darts Masters runner-up as he made his World Series of Darts debut in 2014, Bunting also broke into the Premier League the following year after reaching the quarter-finals of the PDC World Championship on his Alexandra Palace debut.

Also a semi-finalist in the UK Open and World Grand Prix, Bunting won his second PDC ranking title at a Players Championship in Barnsley in 2016.
