While not so unusual in his feat perhaps,
but after his first throw he broke a shaft

remains before finishing his game.
Certainly the stoppage of play did not
affect his concentration:

the quarter-finals of the MFI World

Lowe and Keith Deller with Lowe hitting
the first televised nine-dart perfect 501
game in the history of the sport.
For the record he went:
180-180-141 (T17, T18, D18) and collected
(eventually) a cheque for 102,000 pounds
for his efforts. (Ironically, due to complex
tax laws, Lowe could not pocket a penny
from the jackpot until two years later,
as the currency sat in a British bank
waiting for final approval.)

T17, T16 and T15.
He capped it off with a bull and doublebull.
Afterwards, when his feat had been
pointed out to him, he said he thought the
game had gone unusually fast but
hadn't really thought about it.
Big Cliff Lazarenko fired his first 9-dart
perfect 501 game at an exhibition at the
Aberlynon Leisure Centre.

141 out in the last match of the night.
Paul Lim of San Bernadino, Calif. threw a
perfect 9-dart 501 leg at the 1990 Embassy
