Simon Whitlock began his bid to win a second Dutch Darts Masters title by wearing glasses on stage for the first time as he defeated Mike De Decker in Fridays first round in Venray. Australian ace Whitlock, who won the PDC European Tour event in the Netherlands in 2012, has responded to a slump in form which has seen him drop out of the worlds top 16 by trialling glasses. The 46-year-old wore the glasses in competition for the first time in last weekends Coral UK Open Qualifiers in Wigan - reaching one semi-final - before taking to the stage in Venray, where he sealed a 6-2 defeat of De Decker with a 102 checkout.Whitlock now takes on Ian White in Saturdays second round, and described his decision to start wearing glasses as potentially career changing.The whole game has changed now and I can see the board so clearly - its going to take a little time to adjust but this is a positive start, said Whitlock. Its amazing - a very big change.I needed them two years ago, maybe three years ago, but Ive broken the ice now. Im using them, I might look a bit weird but theyre working. Its very hard changing something as big as this, very difficult to make that transition.Another former European Tour winner, Mervyn King, overcame old rival Ronnie Baxter 6-3 to set up a clash with World Champion Gary Anderson in a tasty second round fixture.2013 Gibraltar Darts Trophy runner-up Jamie Lewis impressed with a clinical 6-0 whitewash of Germanys Andree Welge, taking out a 146 checkout and averaging 98 as he set up a second round tie with Justin Pipe.Stephen Bunting also enjoyed a whitewash win as he took out a 167 finish on his way past Greeces John Michael, with the former Lakeside Champion now set to meet Peter Wright.Dutch Darts Masters - First Round results:Zoran Lerchbacher 5-6 James RichardsonRitchie Edhouse 6-4 Martin SchindlerPaul Milford 5-6 Remco van EijdenAndree Welge 0-6 Jamie LewisKevin Thomas 6-3 Jan DekkerDimitri Van den Bergh 5-6 John HendersonMike De Decker 2-6 Simon WhitlockRobbie Green 4-6 Rowby-John RodriguezKevin Painter 6-5 Jamie CavenJyhan Artut 5-6 Daryl GurneyRyan Harrington 6-4 David PallettJohn Michael 0-6 Stephen BuntingDirk van Duijvenbode 3-6 Gerwyn PriceMervyn King 6-3 Ronnie BaxterMark Webster 6-2 Jermaine WattimenaRicky Evans 5-6 Devon Petersen Also See: Sky Bets darts odds On Sky TV Schedule/Results Features Get Sky Sports Wholesale College Football Jerseys . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence.
