Glen Durrant claimed victory at Players Championship 15 seeing off Darius Labanauskas in the final in a 8-1 victory to win his second PDC ranking title of the year after claiming a Tour Card in January.
Durrant’s best performance of the day came with a brilliant victory over Michael van Gerwen when he smashed the World Number One. He spoke afterwards and admitted that words can’t describe how it feels to claim another title.
He added that for him he joined the PDC for moments like that. He alluded to the clash with Mighty Mike and said that he showed weakness by asking for his shirt before the game but due to him not playing the best he capitalised.
“It feels absolutely fantastic, I can’t put into words how happy I am right now,” said the reigning three-time Lakeside World Champion.
“Last weekend on the Euro Tour was really difficult to me but this weekend has been perfect. I had a fabulous week in practice and I knew I was playing well.
“I was determined to enjoy today but to win another title is pretty special. I joined the PDC for moments like this.
“Before I played Michael [van Gerwen] I asked if I could have his shirt which I immediately regretted as it showed weakness, but he didn’t play his best game and I was able to capitalise.
“I’ve totally exceeded the initial targets I set myself at the start of the year and soon my goals will be changing but I’m not putting too much pressure on myself at the moment.”
