Jerry Umberger (born January 21, 1942) is a retired American professional darts player who competed from the 1970s through the 1990s.[1]

Darts career[edit | edit source]

Throwing American Darts, he was a member of four PA State Dart Championship teams. He won the 1977 championship, and then had back-to-back titles in 1979 and 1980 shooting with John Bobby and Lee Bredbenner.

Turning his attention to the English Pub boards, he competed in four World Professional Darts Championships during the 1980s. There he only managed to win two matches - a first round victory over fellow American Len Heard in 1981, and another first round win over Alan Glazier in 1983.

He failed to qualify again for the World Championship, but following the creation of the World Darts Council (now PDC) - a separate version of the World Championship - started up in 1994. There was initially a heavy reliance on American players to make up the contingent of competitors - and Umberger appeared at the 1994 and 1995 WDC World Championship, but did not progress beyond the initial round robin stage.

Returning to American darting, he won the final of his four State Titles in 1990, shooting with Rick Ney and Rick Koslusky.

The WDC had also started the World Matchplay in 1994, with Umberger beating Cliff Lazarenko in the first round. He lost out to fellow American Larry Butler in the second round.

Umberger also appeared at the 1995 and 1996 World Matchplay events, losing in the first and second rounds respectively.
