australia

Kyle Anderson claimed a maiden title in the 17th Round of the Players Championship in Barnsley. He faced Kevin Painter in the final who was in his first main circuit tournament final for four years. Anderson began with a bang taking out 148 to break in the first leg and then went on to claim another break to take a 3-0 lead. 

Anderson then held again and went one away from a whitewash missing the third dart in an attempt to take out another 148 but was able to return and hit double 14 with his next dart. Painter avoided a whitewash by finishing off an impressive 128 to put himself finally on the board. He held to make it 5-2 and prolong the contest but that was as far it it went as Anderson won the eighth leg to wrap up the 6-2 victory over The Artist.

It ended the perfect day for the Australian who earlier in the day hit a perfect nine dart finish in he last 16 in his win against Ronny Huybrechts.
