James bounced from disappointment in Aberdeen, with a vintage preference against Dave Chisnall in Exeter. Dave took the opening leg, but James held his throw with a 121 finish. The pair then held throw to be locked at 2-2. In the 5th leg, a stunning 161 from James broke the Chizzy throw. James powered into a 6-3 with some big scoring, with his average well over the 100. An 180 in the final leg put James in the driving seat, as he sealed the match winning 7-4.
After James said,” I’m happy, very happy with that.” “The 161 was key, think that hurt Dave. Playing a close friend is always hard but it’s what we have to do.”
James now heads to Minehead for the UK Open this weekend.

After James thanked his sponsors for their continued support, and all the fan for their kind words.
