Taylor had recorded the majority of the highest ever televised averages, but Michael van Gerwen is slowly taking these records. Taylor's highest ever average was achieved in round four of the 2010 UK Open, in which he averaged 118.66 in a 9–0 win over Kevin Painter. This stood until 2016 when Van Gerwen set a new world record of 123.40. Taylor had the World Championship record of 111.21 which he set in the 2002 event, but Van Gerwen raised it to 114.05 in 2017. Taylor holds the record for the highest average in a PDC World Championship final of 110.94 which he set whilst beating Raymond van Barneveld in 2009. In March 2015, Taylor recorded the highest ever losing average, as Van Barneveld beat him 7–4 in the Premier League with Taylor averaging 115.80. Taylor also holds the record for the highest combined average in a single match of 224.26 which was set in his 10–3 victory over Gary Anderson in the quarter-finals of the 2009 European Championship when he averaged 118.14 and Anderson 106.12. Taylor's lifetime average from 717 matches in which it was recorded is 101.52, the highest of any player.
Taylor has supplemented his accomplishments in televised tournaments by frequently achieving the perfect leg of darts- a nine-dart finish. The first time he achieved this was at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, against Chris Mason in the televised World Matchplay Championship in 2002. He has achieved the feat 11 times on television (and 19 times overall), including four times in the UK Open at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton (2004, 2005, 2007, and 2008).
On 24 May 2010, in the final of the 2010 PDC Whyte & Mackay Premier League, Taylor became the first player in professional darts to hit two nine-dart finishes in a single match.
This includes money earned from all darts tournaments Taylor has participated in held by any darts organisation where the prize money is known. The money list rank covers both PDC and BDO players.* As of 14 January 2017. Pro Tour events were not held until 2002.
