2017 really is becoming a breakout season to remember for Rob Cross.
The former electrician from Hastings has picked up his 4th Pro tour title of the season after defeating Adrian Lewis 6-3 in today’s finals.
Cross began the day with his first of 2 whitewash victories, Ron Meulenkamp his first victim. He backed that up with a 6-5 win over Craig Gilchrist before conquering Steve West 6-3 in the board final.
Last weeks surprise package of the Grand Prix John Henderson was taken care of in the last 16. That win was followed up with his second 6-0 win of the day over former World Youth Champion Keegan Brown.
Tom Kirby Memorial winner William O’connor was brushed aside 6-2 in the Semis, before fellow Target Pro Lewis was defeated in the final.
Cross now has a great chance of heading to the Players Championship finals in Minehead as Number 1 seed. He had this to say to PDC.tv “To do what I’ve done this year is fantastic and I’ve over-achieved from my expectations. To go to Minehead as the number one seed, if that was to happen, is an achievement and something to be proud of.”
With just 1 pro tour remaining another win would seal a remarkable debut players championships season.
