Phil Taylor won an amazing 11th partypoker.com World Grand Prix title with a ruthless 6-0 demolition of Dave Chisnall at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.

Taylor proved himself once again as the master of the double-start format with an incredible performance, winning the games first five sets without reply, in a run which saw Chisnall only have one dart at a finishing double.

Chisnall, appearing in his first major PDC final, won the opening leg of the sixth set to finally get off the mark, but was denied any further chance of mounting a comeback as Taylor took out a 164 checkout in claiming the £100,000 title.

"It's a great night for me but I feel for Dave," said Taylor. "It's his first major PDC final but it won't be his last major final.

"After I went 5-0 up my concentration started to go, and I felt a bit sorry for Dave - which is not me.

"He started coming back and the crowd were singing that he was going to win 6-5 - and that started going through my mind a little bit, so the 164 was important, it was the best shot I hit all night.

"In my mind tonight, it was going to be a close game and I was preparing for it to go all the way. Sometimes in sport that doesn't happen."
