Australian Darts Open (WDF Platinum Event) 2019 Winners Damon Heta and Lisa Ashton In the first Australian Darts Open in 2019 six Australians made it through to the quarter finals with only two being victorious. Jim Williams of Wales put an end to Mitchell Clegg’s campaign with a 6-2 win whilst Scott Mitchell saw off Aaron Morrison but it went to a deciding leg, 6-5. Damon Heta defeated Justin Thompson 6-4 in an all Aussie affair whilst Gerry Starr lost 6-3 to Gordon Mathers in the other quarter final. The semi finals saw a close affair and a one sided match. Mitchell and Mathers played out a nail biter as Mitchell held on in the deciding leg to win 8-7. Heta, on the other hand, disposed quickly of Jim Williams 8-1. The Final itself was a classic and another tight affair. Despite all his experience Mitchell could not overcome Heta in the final deciding leg, and thus Damon Heta was crowded the first Australian Darts Open Mens winner with a 10-9 victory in the final. In the ladies tournament Lisa Ashton overcame Tori Kewish and Barb Smyth in Pool A whilst Mikuru Suzuki eliminated Lorraine Burn and Lee-Ann Faulkner in Group B. The final was another closely fought affair but eventually Ashton won out with an 8-6 victory in the final over Suzuki.
