SIMON WHITLOCK claimed his first PDC ProTour win with a 6-4 defeat of Gary Anderson to take victory in the Bobby Bourn Memorial Players Championship.
Whitlock, the Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship runner-up, claimed the £6,000 title at the Barnsley Metrodome with a fine win over the Scottish star, in what he admitted was his best-ever day of darts.
PHIL TAYLOR’S run of success in the Bobby Bourn Memorial Players Championship continued with victory in Saturday’s tournament at the Winter Gardens.
Taylor has won the pre-World Matchplay event – named in memory of the late PDC official – for five successive years, after another superb display of darts.
He dropped only one set in the final, and won his three sets without reply against his former practice partner to warm up in style for the defence of his Stan James World Matchplay title and suggest that he is returning to top form.
Taylor took out 79 to in the opening leg of the match, and then punished a poor leg from Lewis, on his own throw, to take out double eight for the first set.
