The 28-year-old Englishman is determined to add more major titles to his record in the coming years. ''The world is my oyster. It's up to me now. I will probably work even harder, because when you get the taste of it (winning), you want more and more," Humphries said in an interview with the PDC.

In recent years, Humphries has made steady strides in his development. ''When you make the top-32 you think; 'This is amazing'. Then you break into the top-16 and top-8 and you think; 'It can't get any better'. You have to keep pushing and pushing. Now I'm in the top four of the world. I have exceeded all my expectations on how I saw my career going, but there's one place left for me and it's at the top."
Now that Humphries has finally secured his first major title, the former junior world champion also dares to speak his bigger dreams aloud He has two more big goals.
''Winning titles like this - it gives you that momentum and confidence to win anything, because I know I can win under the most intense pressure. The next goal for me now is to be world number one and win the world title. They are the two things left for me to accomplish in my career."
