What is the 3 dart average in PDC World Darts Championship finals?

The PDC World Championship started in 1994 as the WDC World Darts Championship, which was the result of the split between the World Darts Council and the British Darts Organisation (BDO). In 1997 the WDC became the PDC. In the beginning the BDO got more attention and had higher prize money, but eventually the PDC became more and more popular and since 2002 the prize money in the PDC was higher than in the BDO. Also the level of darts became higher in the PDC than in the BDO. Currently, the BDO doesn't exist anymore, because of financial issues the BDO went into liquidation in September 2020. The 3 dart average in the PDC is, on average, higher than the 3 dart average was in the BDO. Since 1994 the PDC World Championship is held 24 times, and the 3 dart average of all 24 finals is 98.08. The average of all winning finalists is 100.19, and the average of all losing finalists is 95.96.
