Stephen Bunting started to play darts when he was 12 years old and in 2001 won the British Teenage Open
and 2002 the World Youth Masters and the WDF Europe Cup Youth, From then on he played the BDO Circuit till 2014.
Since 2014 Bunting plays the PDC Circuit.
2004 he qualified with 18 for the first time for the BDO World Championship but lost second round against
Ted Hankey. He qualified again in 2005 and 2009 and lost both times in the first round. In 2011 he again
took part and this time reached the quarterfinals of the tournament. The same result he reached some
months later in the Winmau World Masters.
2012 he couldn't qualify for the World Championship but won the Winmau World Masters - his biggest
success so far. He returned to Lakeside in 2013 as the number 1 seeded player but lost to Darryl
Fitton in second round - the biggest upset of the tournament. 2014 he again entered the tournament as the number 1 seed
and this time he won the title.
While Bunting was very sucessfull in his last years in the BDO his time in the PDC so far is very much an up-and-down affair. He from time to time
reaches the later rounds of big tournaments and Pro Tour and European Tour events but often enough after some great performances plays some rather disappointing matches. Nevertheless he has established himself
by now just outside the top 16 of the PDC Order of Merit. Bunting's so far best result was the semi-final of the PDC World Championship 2021.
During his time with the BDO Bunting was several times nominated for the English national team.
