The left-hander James Wade stood with 19 years in his first final - in the BDO Classics 2001 - but lost against John Walton.
2003 he for the first time took part in a televised Major - the BDO World Championship in Lakeside. He lost his first round match
but one year later he returned. This time he ended in the second round...During 2004 he played himself into several Major
quarterfinals. The last one was the International Darts League in May.
After that tournament he changed to the PDC. He managed to qualify for the PDC World Championship 2005 but as with his Lakeside
debut he lost his first round match.
In February he could celebrate his first PDC title when he won the Irish Masters and he started to climb up the rankings though
in 2006 he again lost his first round match in the World Championship.
Later in the year he caused a sensation and managed his breakthrough when he reached the final of the World Matchplay.
2007 was his best year so far. James Wade claimed two Major titles and since this time is under the Top four of the PDC.
Since 2011 it is known that Wade is ill with bipolar disorder which affects his darting career as well. In August 2015 Wade married the former Walk-on girl Sammy Marsh, who now works as his manager.
