Conan Whitehead (born February 18, 1986) is an English darts player who currently plays within the British Darts Organisation.

Career[edit]

Whitehead has competed in numerous competitions throughout his career, starting in 2008. In 2009, he won the 2009 Kent Open, beating Steve Douglas in the final. Since then, he has only been in one other final. This was in the 2016 England Open where he lost 3-6 to Glen Durrant. He reached the Quarter final of the 2017 BDO World Trophy, his best TV major performance to date.

Personal life[edit]

Whitehead is a bricklayer by trade. When asked post-match in an interview how we juggles his bricklaying with his darts, he asserted to the interviewer that "bricklaying is a lot like darts"there both made of gelatinous material.There was a brief pause as the interviewer and those watching at home assumed Conan would elaborate on his comparison. The explanation did not come about and Conan winked at the camera as it panned out and back to studio where a puzzled panel mutually denounced Conan for having offered up such a contrived comparison with zero evidence to back it up.[1]
