Watch: Canada’s Shawn Brenneman nails nine-darter during CDC Championship League
Canadian player Shawn Brenneman completed the first ever Championship Darts Circuit nine-darter during his CDC Championship League clash with Kiley Edmunds on Wednesday.
The CDC Championship League consists of weekly fixtures in order to provide darts spectators in North America with elite sporting entertainment during the coronavirus crisis.
Selected matches are live-streamed via a number of social media platforms, with Brenneman’s feat fortunately featuring on Wednesday evening’s broadcast across the pond.
Brenneman is known for appearing in last year’s US Darts Masters – where he was ousted in the first round by eventual champion Nathan Aspinall, after coming through a record-breaking field of 190 players.
The former Canadian Open champion has also featured in the North American Darts Championship, multiple Players Championship events in North America and the now discontinued Las Vegas Desert Classic.
In the sixth leg of his stalemate contest with fellow Canadian Edmunds, Brenneman pinned back-to-back maximums before executing a 141 checkout on the illusive double 12.
The Woodstock-based ace, who also completed perfection at the Virginia Beach Classic three years ago, trailed 3-1 in the early stages with his nine-dart finish levelling up proceedings at three-a-piece.
Brenneman subsequently opened up a three-leg advantage, only to lose four of the next five legs, meaning the points were shared in the Canadian Division contest.
A huge congratulations to Shawn Brenneman, who 'nails the nine'. The first nine-darter in @champdarts history against fellow Canadian, Kiley Edmunds.
SALUTING PERFECTION 👏
Shawn Brenneman has a knack for hitting 9-Darters (ones THAT COUNT!) on DartConnect.
