Anderson wins Premier League title
22 May 2015 00:12
PDC world champion Gary Anderson’s annus mirabilis got even better on Thursday night as the Scot secured the Premier League title for the second time after defeating Michael van Gerwen 11-7 at London’s O2.
-
Van Gerwen may have topped the Premier League standings, but his poor finishing was punished in ruthless fashion by Anderson, who is also the reigning Players Championship champion.
-
'The Flying Scotsman' had earlier edged out an inspired Dave Chisnall on a 10-9 scoreline to set up a final against Van Gerwen, who overcame compatriot Raymond van Barneveld 10-8.
-
Van Barneveld came agonisingly close to recording a nine-dart finish, only to see his final dart miss its intended target by the narrowest of margins.
-
"Michael van Gerwen is hot property,” Anderson told Sky Sports 1 after his victory in the final.
-
“You won't see him lose many tournaments but I'm glad he did tonight.
-
"I know how he plays. He throws the darts and gets on with it. Those are the games I like to play in."
-
A deflated Van Gerwen was eager to seek solace in his performance despite the reversal, saying: “If you lose you're never happy."
-
"I can only blame myself so roll on the next tournament.
-
"You can't win all the time so I still need to be happy with the tournament."
