I think I may be a sufferer too. Been in a league for many years and considered myself a decent threat. I am now a 33%er (1 dart scores out of three) and my delivery doesn't feel right. Almost awkward. This is truly a mental game. My current stress level is elevated a little. I warm up fine and then in the midst of a match, I choke. My delivery gets tight and clunky and that leads to the darts being released inconsistantly. So I want to share a method I will start using. Relaxation. While pitching in little league my father(coach)could see i was getting wild and call timeout, tell me to take a deep breath and relax. It always worked. While standing at the ocho I will slow down, take a deep breath, maybe a couple ghost throws to get the motion moving fluidly. Also, not act like a machine gun and rifle my throws out one after the other. Adjust my plant foot after each dart and regather my emotions. The game isnt timed, right?
