Adorned with decorative head tattoos, exuberant Mohicans and disco pants for days, Peter 'Snakebite' Wright is an iconic mainstay of the PDC Darts circuit.

But he's not a gimmick – there is a venomous competitor behind the showman, as his almost 50 PDC titles demonstrate.

Take a look at our Peter Wright profile before he takes to the oche for the upcoming BetMGM Premier League Darts campaign.

Peter Wright History

It took a while for Peter Wright to make it to the big time – indeed, it was 13 years after making his professional debut at the 1995 BDO World Darts Championship before he played a full PDC schedule.

In the interim he did odd jobs – working as a tyre fitter and a labourer – to support himself but, much like the inspiration behind his nickname, he bided his time before striking and is an eight-time major winner.

Here are some of the highlights that has helped the Scotsman establish himself as a huge name in the sport:

  • Two-time PDC world champion – The undoubted high points of Wright’s career are his two PDC World Darts Championship titles, won in 2020 and 2022 byovercoming Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith respectively. Despite averaging less than his opponent in both finals, Wright’s durability got him over the line – appropriately so, given his long odyssey to the top of the sport
  • Nearly 50 PDC titles – He is approaching a half-century of PDC titles, few of which were more important than his first-ever in 2017, when he overcame Rob Cross, Raymond van Barneveld, and Gerwyn Price on his way to UK Open glory. The victory was extra sweet for Wright, who had finished runner-up twice before in the event. It was the first of eight PDC majors
  • Holds the third-highest televised darts average – In 2017, Wight averaged 119.50 in a 7-2 mauling of fellow two-time world champion Adrian Lewis in the BetMGM Premier League. Only Kim Huybrechts (121.97 vs Paul Lim at the 2017 World Cup of Darts) and Michael van Gerwen (123.40 vs Michael Smith in the 2016 BetMGM Premier League) have recorded higher televised averages. He also holds the record for highest PDC broadcast match average (123.53) which he set against Krzysztof Ratajski at Players Championship 29 in 2019

Peter Wright Stats

Given his longevity in the sport, there is no shortage of numbers to pore over. Let's take a look at some of the more notable elements of Wright's record:

  • Since the creation of the PDC tour, only three players have a higher average than Peter Wright (97.31) – Gary Anderson (97.83), Phil Taylor (98.73), and Michael van Gerwen (100.50)
  • At the time of writing, he has hit the second-most 180s in the history of the PDC(4,382) with only Michael van Gerwen having more to his name (5,175)
  • He has three recorded nine-dart finishes, including a famous instance during the 2020 BetMGM Premier League Darts, where he landed a perfect leg against Daryl Gurneyjust 48 hours after missing double 12 for the same feat against the same opponent
