bet365 US Darts Masters: Introducing 'The Iceman', Gerwyn Price

We profile 2021 world champion Gerwyn Price as The Iceman hopes to add the bet365 US Darts Masters to his growing list of accolades in New York this June.

How many ranking titles has Gerwyn Price won?

Despite only coming through Q-School and gaining his professional status in 2014, Price has already racked up 33 title successes, nine of which have come in televised events.

Five of those wins have come in Majors, with his breakthrough success coming at the Grand Slam of Darts in 2018. The Welshman has gone on to win that event three times having also reigned supreme in Wolverhampton in 2019 and 2021.

Price is also a former world champion having conquered Alexandra Palace two years ago, beating Gary Anderson 7-3 in a one-way final which featured a 100.08 average.

What is Gerwyn Price’s current world ranking?

The Iceman is the current world number four, sitting behind only Michael Smith, Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright in the PDC Order of Merit.

By his impeccable standards, Price started the season sluggishly and he could only make the quarter-finals of the World Championship, where he was brushed aside 5-1 by Gabriel Clemens.

Since then, however, Price has flourished and he performed particularly well in the Premier League, where he sits top of the eight-man standings with the tournament heading into Night 16 having won 22 of the 33 matches he has contested.

How old is Gerwyn Price?

Price is 38 years of age and the Welshman has been a PDC Tour professional for nine years having received his card in 2014. He made his World Championship debut in 2015 when he lost in the opening round to Wright.

Where is Gerwyn Price from?

The Iceman is Welsh through and through and was born in Markham, which is a small village in the South Wales Valleys in Caerphilly.

What song does Gerwyn Price walk out to?

To go with the theme of being called the Iceman, Price comes out to Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. The Welshman thrives on atmosphere and performs to his best in front of a raucous crowd - this song helps to get the spectators going.

How much prize money has Gerwyn Price won during his career?

Price is currently fourth on the PDC Order Of Merit, which is done on a two-year basis, having amassed £773,250 over that spell.

The Welshman is currently top of the Premier League standings, though, and is guaranteed of his place in the final four. The winner of that event takes home £275,000 while the semi-finalists are assured of £85,000.

What darts does Gerwyn Price use?

Price uses 24-gram Red Dragon darts and has used them ever since he started playing darts competitively in 2012.

What are Gerwyn Price’s other career achievements?

The Welshman was a late arrival to darts having originally chosen to be a professional Rugby Union and League player.

Price initially played as a hooker for Welsh Premier Division sides Neath and Cross Keys and also had a brief spell in the Pro12 with Glasgow Warriors, acting as injury cover.

The 38-year-old hung up his boots in 2014 to focus on playing darts full-time and has never looked back, winning seven Major titles.

Price is a regular nine-dart hitter having made six in competitive action and he achieved a slice of history with one at the World Darts Championship in 2022.
