Van Gerwen feeling 'a lot more comfortable' after switching back to old darts

Michael van Gerwen claimed victory on Day Three of the PDC Autumn Series with a thumping win over Mensur Suljovic in the final to return to the winners' circle after his Premier League disappointment.

Van Gerwen failed to make the play-offs for the first time being in the competition with major doubts about his game. He has reverted to his old darts this week and has looked in good form.

He spoke after his final win and admitted he feels better than before and that it is all about just moving on now from the Premier League.

"You have to play your A-game to win tournaments like this," said Van Gerwen.

"I had some tough games today. I played Damon Heta again after he beat me yesterday.

"Apart from yesterday, the last few days I have felt a lot more comfortable than I did before.

"Of course it was nice to beat Glen Durrant for first time. He's a phenomenal player but I should've beaten him last time.

"There's always pressure on my back. I didn't perform how I can in the Premier League but that's how darts goes sometimes.

"I'm human but I will come back stronger, everyone knows that and I believe in my own ability."
