A POWYS darts player has been proclaimed an unlikely pin up star.

Jim Williams of Presteigne has been voted the second most handsome darts player in the world in a new survey of fans of the sport.

Williams bowed out of the PDC 2023 Cazoo World Darts Championship after a strong performance over Christmas – and clearly he was able to hold his head high enough for fans to catch a glimpse of some bona fide good looks.

The Presteigne player reached the last 32 of the prestigious tournament before bowing out to Gabriel Clemens 4-3 following a thrilling duel.

The 38 year old is ranked 59th in the world and among the elite of the world of darts to compete at the championship which is being held until January 3.

But perhaps more prestigious is his recognition as the second-most handsome player on the circuit.

The research was carried out by Gambling.com


With technology being an ever-increasing factor in people’s daily lives, researchers at Gambling.com turned to popular beauty measurement app Golden Ratio Face to help determine which darts players are ageing like fine wines, and whose looks seem to have taken a bullseye hit.

Williams scored 8.87 in the beauty measurement app, and the 38 year old will hope that his PDC World Ranking will soon catch up with his lofty beauty assessment.

Only Damon Heta is ranked higher according to the popular beauty measurement app.

‘The Heat’ lives up to his nickname as the only player to receive a ‘perfect’ rating of 9.00 or above.
