Michael Smith has won his first title in nearly a year since his Gibraltar Darts Trophy triumph in a whitewash win over Zoran Lerchbacher to win his 8th career title after losing out to Michael van Gerwen on Friday.
He put it right though with a flawless day for the Bully Boy capped off with that win against the Hypercane. In his post match interview he spoke about how he had been getting abuse on social media after his Premier League inclusion and now he has shown them that he has it in his locker.
He also said that he will be back next weekend to potentially add more money to his ranking and more tournament wins to his resume and especially if Van Gerwen is sitting them out who can bet against him doing just that.
Michael Smith 6 | 0 Zoran Lerchbacher
