Like many darts players, Taylore started his carreer in the BDO. Due to decreasing tv coverage and the loss of sponsors, Taylor amongst others decided to split up and form their own organisation which was then called WDC (World Darts Council), later the PDC. From 1993 till now, Taylor has won 16 PDC World Championships.
