Gary Anderson is the first winner on the Players Championship circuit this year defeating Jeff Smith in the final who was returning to the tour.

For Anderson he is pleased to claim the victory as it helps in reaching some of his goals for his return to form.

He also admitted that as a result of this win, he has got his desire back having not won a title in some time.

“It’s been a while since I won something, but I’ve got the hunger back,” Anderson revealed.

“I want to get back to how I was throwing before [injury], I don’t mind if I win or lose, but as long as I throw them how I used to then I’ll be alright.

“I still have work to do, but it’s not a bad start.”
