Gary Anderson: Major titles, world ranking, walk on song, net worth & more

We profile the two-time PDC World Darts Champion and five-time world finalist, 'The Flying Scotsman', Gary Anderson.

Gary Anderson ranking titles

Anderson has captured a total of 53 titles during his illustrious career, with 19 of those coming in TV events.

His two World Darts Championship crowns remain the most highly-prized of that list, having gone the full distance at Alexandra Palace in 2015 and 2016.

He has also reigned supreme in the Premier League twice (2011 and 2015), the World Matchplay (2018), the UK Open (2018), the Players Championship Finals (2014) and the Champions League in 2018.

Anderson is also a World Cup winner after capturing the title, along with partner Peter Wright, in 2019.

Gary Anderson's world ranking

Anderson is currently ranked at number 21 on the PDC Order of Merit, significantly lower than the number one position he held during his spells as World Champion between 2015 and 2017.

The Flying Scotsman remains one of the most dazzling performers on the big stage however, with his current ranking largely being determined by his absence from floor tournaments over the past couple of years.

There have been signs in recent months that Anderson is edging back towards his very best, so it wouldn't come as too much of a surprise to see the former back-to-back world champion knocking on the door of the top 16 sooner rather than later.
