The 2001 World Grand Prix was the first time that the competition was staged in the Citywest Hotel Dublin. Phil Taylor won the World Grand Prix the first 3 years but in the tournaments 4th year he got knocked out in the first round 2-1 to Kevin Painter. That meant the tournament would have a new winner. Alan Warriner became champion when he defeated Roland Scholten 8-2 in the final. In his first round win over Andy Jenkins, Warriner set a world record average for a televised match with a double start, at 106.45, which still stands to this day.
