Larry Butler turned the clock back one year, sealing an incredible win in Championship Darts Corporations‘ third weekend of action at Indiana. Larry Butler defeated American No.1 Danny Baggish 7-3 in the showpiece Sunday match to claim his record-breaking ninth CDC championship, his first since 2017. In January 2016, Butler played at the 2016 World Championship, his first appearance at a world championship event in 19 years. Several North American players were invited to participate in the tournament, with Butler appearing at the inaugural WDC World Championship in 1994 (now the Professional Darts Corporation, PDC). Butler returned to the UK Darts Organization in 2015 and had a good year, winning the BDO Americas rankings, helped by wins in the Camellia Classic and USA Dart Classic. Larry Thomas Butler (born July 21, 1957), nicknamed The Bald Eagle, is an American professional darts player and was the 1994 winner of the PDC Matchplay World Darts Championship.

Larry Butler played Jason Brandon in the quarters and defeated him 6-2, which mainly boosted his confidence for the upcoming matches. He made his way to the semis, where he met John Norman Jr. and Butler defeated him with ease, 7-0. The eyes were then shifted to the finals. Butler was up against the number 1 American, Danny Baggish, who made his way to the finals after a shoulder-to-shoulder semi-final match against Alex Spellman. It was pretty comfortable for Butler to win the game, but a lot was expected from Danny Baggish.

The Bald Eagle, 65 years old and has resumed playing after being hospitalised in 2018 for a severe heart attack, has a phenomenal winning record and longevity that Paul Lim may only match. Butler made his debut on the steel tip circuit in 1992, when he qualified for the Taylor-Gregory final-era BDO World Championships. The competition that year was highly competitive, and the Americans came in second to Dennis Priestley.
