Bull’s got ‘The Power’
1:07pm Friday 25th October 2013 in Sport
TERRY Jenkins will take on the might of Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in the first round of The Masters next Friday.
The Masters features the top 16 players from the PDC Order of Merit and the inaugural tournament kicks off at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh.
World Champion Taylor, the world number one, takes on 16th seed Jenkins, from Ledbury, when the tournament begins with the eight first round matches in one bumper session of darts. The pair’s last meeting came in July’s World Matchplay, when Taylor edged to a 14-12 victory in an epic contest in Blackpool.
“To see such huge match-ups, such as Phil against Terry in the first round shows just how competitive The Masters will be,” said PDC chairman Barry Hearn.
Following next Friday’s first round action, the quarter-finals will take place on Saturday night. The semi-finals and final will then complete the weekend’s action on Sunday evening, with all three games taking place in one session to determine the winner of the £50,000 inaugural Masters title.
