Template - Date: MvG’s World Grand Prix Victory

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN lifted the Unibet World Grand Prix title for a fourth time with a 5-2 win over Peter Wright at the Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin on Saturday.

World number one Van Gerwen landed two vital ton-plus finishes and fired in seven 180s to notch up an 18th title of the year at the double-start event, which he first won in 2012.

Despite an edgy start, the Dutchman produced a 101 checkout to go 3-2 up in sets before reeling off the last two sets in impressive style to land the trophy and the £100,000 top prize.

“I had to fight really hard to win that one,” said Van Gerwen. “All credit to Peter, he made it difficult. “At the start of this game I didn’t play well but I showed winning instinct inside me to survive.

“Everyone wrote me off but I took the recent defeats on the chin and fought back even harder and played a phenomenal tournament. “I’m building my preparation for the World Championship and I’m growing in confidence with every win – they should all be afraid of me.”

Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Starring in his first Dublin final and bidding for a fourth title of the year, world number two Wright got off to a good start but was unable to convert his superior average into a lead.

Van Gerwen claimed a tight first set with a superb 110 finish in the deciding leg, before Wright claimed the second without reply courtesy of some superb darts. That pattern continued as Van Gerwen took the third in a fifth leg before Wright won the fourth 3-1.

With the pair tied at 2-2, the crucial moment of the match came at the end of the fifth set as Wright missed a set-dart and was punished by Van Gerwen who landed a stunning 101 checkout to take a 3-2 lead.

The Dutchman, who defeated Steve Lennon, Darren Webster, Dave Chisnall and Daryl Gurney en route to the final. found his groove in the final two sets to drop only one further leg as he ran out a worthy champion.

“Michael is a fantastic player but he only won tonight because I let him off so much,” said Wright, who saw off Steve West, Jermaine Wattimena, James Wilson and Mensur Suljovic to reach the Citywest showdown.

“My form this year has been up and down, I had an awesome game against Mensur on Friday but unfortunately I couldn’t do it again in the final. “I enjoy my darts and I mix it with the best, maybe next time I will go all the way.”

Kevin Burness 6-3 Mick McGowan

KEVIN BURNESS defeated Mick McGowan 6-3 to win the 2018 Tom Kirby Memorial Irish Matchplay final on Saturday, securing his William Hill World Darts Championship debut in the process.

Northern Irishman Burness was making his PDC big stage debut and was broken in the opening leg by Ireland’s McGowan, who was looking to lift the title for a record-breaking third time. Burness then found his groove and broke straight back to start a run of five successive legs and go within a leg of a first Alexandra Palace appearance.

McGowan survived a match dart and won the next two legs, but the comeback was short-lived as Burness sealed the biggest victory of his career. “It means everything to me to win this trophy,” said Burness.

Template - Date: Paddy Power Champions League

The two-time World Champion made it four televised titles for the year thanks to a series of spectacular displays throughout the weekend at The Brighton Centre as he clinched the £100,000 top prize.

Anderson avenged his 2017 Champions League final defeat to Mensur Suljovic with an 11-4 triumph in the semi-final before seeing off his fellow Scot by the same scoreline in the final.

Having survived two missed match darts against Michael van Gerwen in their final group game earlier in the day which would have eliminated the World Matchplay winner, Anderson recovered to fire in three ten-darters during a dominant display in the final.

“I’m over the moon to win, it was a hard weekend and I struggled at times but came good in the end,” said Anderson, who has also won the UK Open, World Matchplay and US Darts Masters in 2018. “I just turn up and play my game but it’s going alright so far this year. It’s been a good weekend.”

Anderson also landed seven perfect darts in his bid for a nine-darter which would have earned the Brighton crowd a share of a £50,000 prize offered by sponsors Paddy Power. “I had a good go at the nine-darter, I really tried for the fans all weekend,” he added. “Now I’m looking forward to having a few days at home – my little man [son Tai] will love this trophy!”

Gary Anderson, Peter Wright (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Anderson flew out of the blocks in the final, breaking the Wright throw three times as he raced into a commanding 6-1 lead. Wright, who came from 8-5 down to defeat Van Gerwen 11-9 in the semis, fought hard to stay in the game but a 4-7 deficit was as close as he came to halting his World Cup of Darts teammate’s march to glory.

Anderson reeled off the next four legs in typically quick fashion, ending the game with three ten-dart legs and a 65% checkout rate to land his maiden Champions League title.

Peter Wright, Gary Anderson (Lawrence Lustig, PDC)

Despite falling at the final hurdle, it was a positive weekend for Wright, who had previously failed to make it out of the group stage in the previous two years of the event.

“I think I just ran out of steam,” Wright admitted. “I played really well but I had nothing left in the final. “Gary is the man to beat at the moment and I believe I lost to the best player of the weekend.

“It was a pleasure to play in front of such an amazing crowd.” Sunday afternoon’s final group matches had seen Wright join Suljovic in progressing from Group B with a 10-3 win over World Champion Rob Cross.

A disappointed Cross said: “I didn’t play anywhere near my best. I was so determined to play well but it didn’t happen for me.

“It wasn’t good enough this weekend and I’ve got to take it on the chin. We’ve got lots of big events coming up and I know what I’ve got to work on to put it right.”

Northern Ireland’s Daryl Gurney, meanwhile, agonisingly missed out in Group A, with his 10-7 win over Dave Chisnall coming in vain when Anderson edged past Van Gerwen by taking out 140 in the deciding leg of their contest.

Gurney conceded: “I couldn’t have done much more. I gave it my all and to win two games out of three in a group like that is a good achievement.”

Focus on the PDC circuit now moves to the Unibet World Grand Prix, which will be played at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin from September 30-October 6 and will be shown live on Sky Sports with tickets available at www.ticketmaster.ie.

GERWYN PRICE claimed his first European Tour title by defeating Simon Whitlock 8-3 in the final of the International Darts Open in Riesa.

Price was visibly delighted to be lifting his first PDC crown since May 2016 as he became the fourth new winner on the continent in 2018, despite continuing his recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The £135,000 tournament at SACHSENarena saw runner-up Whitlock reach his second European Tour final of the year, but it was Price’s weekend as the Welsh ace reeled off the last six legs in emphatic style to clinch the £25,000 top prize.

I turn up to every tournament expecting to win “I’m thrilled to win in front of this unbelievable crowd,” said Price, who was starring in his second European Tour final.

Price began his run to glory in East Germany with a 6-3 defeat of John Henderson on Saturday before surviving three match darts in his 6-5 win over Daryl Gurney to progress to the quarter-finals.

There, the former UK Open finalist posted an impressive 101.63 average to see off Ryan Searle 6-2 and held his nerve in the semi-final, edging out Steve West 7-6 in a thrilling contest.

The final began with an early break of throw for Whitlock before Price broke straight back with a 14-dart leg and then held throw for a 2-1 lead.

Whitlock held and then found double 12 with his last dart in hand to regain the lead at 3-2, but that was as good as it got for the Australian who was blown away by six stunning legs from Price.

IAN WHITE lifted his first European Tour title after defeating Ricky Evans 8-5 in the final of the Dutch Darts Championship in Maastricht.

White was playing in his 63rd European Tour event, more than any other player, and was left in tears as he became the third new winner on the continent this year.

The £135,000 tournament at MECC saw runner-up Evans reach his first European Tour final, but it was White’s weekend as the Stoke star found double top with his last dart in hand to clinch the £25,000 top prize.

It’s just magical to finally win one

 

“It’s been a long time coming, I’m getting older so it’s just magical to finally win one,” said White, who now has ten PDC titles to his name.

“I was so pleased to see that double top go in to get me over the winning line because I got a bit nervy towards the end.

“Now I’ve won one hopefully there will be a few more to come – it’s just a magnificent feeling to win a title on stage at last. 

“I’m playing well and enjoying the game and I want to start going far in TV events and maybe win one but right now I’m going to enjoy this moment.”

Template - Date: Coral UK Open 2019

THE Coral UK Open will enjoy a huge change in format for 2019 and a prize fund boost to £450,000, with all PDC Tour Card Holders guaranteed a place in an expanded 160-player field for the event as they compete for a £100,000 first prize.

In the biggest move since the tournament was introduced in 2003, the PDC will be abolishing the UK Open Qualifiers for professional players which had previously been used to determine 96 qualifiers.

All 128 Tour Card Holders will now be invited straight into the UK Open from 2019 onwards, with the field complemented by 16 Rileys Amateur Qualifiers and 16 qualifiers from the 2018 PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour Order of Merit.

The UK Open’s unique open draw format will remain in place, with the Tour Card Holders being exempt from the early rounds based on their PDC ranking.

Coral UK Open (PDC)

Play will again be across eight stages simultaneously at the Butlin’s Minehead Resort from March 1-3, with the action culminating with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final on the main stage on Sunday.

The UK Open’s top prize will increase to tournament record £100,000 in 2019, with a total prize fund of £450,000 on offer and being paid down to the last 96.

“We’re always looking at ways to enhance the value of securing a PDC Tour Card, and this is both an important and exciting development for players,” said PDC Chief Executive Matthew Porter.

“The UK Open is a real favourite with both players, fans and television viewers and will still retain the unique combination of amateur qualifiers and professional stars.

“The change will be accompanied by an increased prize fund of £450,000 and also allows the expansion of the ProTour circuit to include more Players Championship events for professionals to compete in.

“Following the recent expansion of the William Hill World Darts Championship, this is another positive development for players ahead of our forthcoming 2019 PDC calendar announcement.”

PDPA Chief Executive Alan Warriner-Little said: “The PDC circuit continues to improve and The PDPA gives its full support to these innovative and exiting changes to the UK Open, which can only be of benefit to our players and the game as a whole.

“This 17th year of the UK Open now gives all of our Tour Card Holders and top Associate Members a new challenge and opportunity whilst continuing to give amateur players the chance the fulfil their ambitions in ‘The FA Cup of Darts’.”

Coral UK Open (PDC)

Eight events remain to be played across two weekends on the 2018 Challenge Tour circuit on September 8-9 and November 10-11, with the top two players from the final Order of Merit claiming a PDC Tour Card.

Following the 2019 PDC Qualifying School, the next 16 ranked non-Tour Card Holders from the final 2018 Challenge Tour Order of Merit will be invited to compete in the UK Open.

Two Players Championship weekends will replace the UK Open Qualifiers on the 2019 PDC calendar ahead of the cut-off for professional players’ exemptions for the UK Open draw.

CAMERON MENZIES and Lee Budgen enjoyed their first PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour title wins as the year’s fourth double-header weekend concluded in Wigan on Sunday.

A finalist in January’s Event Four, Menzies overcame Mark Frost 5-0 in the final to clinch the first £2,000 title of the day. The Scottish star defeated Mick Todd, Brett Claydon, Kevin Edward and Robert Smith to reach the quarter-finals.

There, Menzies beat Welsh veteran Barrie Bates 5-3, before enjoying a 5-0 whitewash of Mark Walsh to reach his second Challenge Tour final of the year.

In Event 16, Budgen defeated Michael Barnard 5-3 to seal his maiden Challenge Tour triumph. Three-time Challenge Tour winner in 2018 Barnard missed the bullseye for a 161 checkout which would’ve levelled the tie at 4-4, before Budgen took out a 170 finish to claim the title.

Budgen recorded wins over Claydon, Kelvin Hart, Cody Harris, Evander Stevenson, Kevin Garcia and Andy Boulton to reach the final. The final PDC Unicorn Challenge Tour of the year will see Events 17-20 take place on November 10-11 at the East of England Arena, Peterborough.
