Eric Bristow achieved the feat three times (1979 Masters 1980 World, 1983-84 and 1984-85). Bob Anderson (1987 - 88), Richie Burnett (1994 - 95) and John Walton (2000 - 01) were the others. There have been two other instances of players holding both championships at the same time (Phil Taylor 1990 and Raymond van Barneveld 2005) - but these were not during the same season which is considered to end with the World Championship.
