Rob Collins is the first winner on this year’s PDC Challenge Tour after defeating Adam Huckvale in the final of Event One.

Collins was seemingly cruising to victory for the most part but Huckvale came back and played well to force a decider.

‘Bad Medicine’ could not finish on 127 and this allowed Collins the opportunity at 60 when he returned and he duly obliged to claim the victory and his maiden PDC title.

He will now likely be involved in future Players Championship events as a result after missing out on his Tour Card at Q-School.

Today he defeated Justin Hood 5-2, Danny van Trijp 5-2, Gordon Mathers 5-3, Stu Wilson 5-2, Lee Smith 5-1, Ray Marshall 5-4, Derek Coulson 5-3 and first of all Philip Wathen 5-1 en route to the title.
