Gerwyn Price ends wait for trophy with title win at Nordic Darts Masters 2024

Gerwyn Price has ended his wait for a title win at the 2024 Nordic Darts Masters. The Welshman defeated Rob Cross in the final 8-5 to secure the title.

After breezing past Madars Razma of Friday night, Price had made similarly short work of Dimitri van den Bergh in the quarter-finals, Price saw off the challenge of Michael Smith in the semifinals to book his place in the final in Copenhagen. Cross meanwhile, took wins earlier in the tournament in Copenhagen against Jeffrey De Graaf and Stephen Bunting, Cross also ended the hopes of world champion Luke Humphries in the semifinals.

The final was actually a repeat of the last World Series of Darts tournament at the US Darts Masters in New York City. On that occasion, Cross took the win. This time around however, Price got himself revenge. The former world champion took the lead early in the match. With two 15-darters and two 17-darters, 'The Iceman' took a 4-0 lead in the early portion of the encounter.

Although Cross did manage to fight his way back into the contest, getting back to 6-5 at one point, the Englishman could never quite get back on level terms. Powering towards finish line, Price took the last two legs in 12 and 15 darts to take the title with an 8-5 triumph.

Distribution of prize money

The prize fund for this event includes £60,000. This amount is the same at all regular World Series tournaments. All participants are guaranteed 1250 pounds of prize money.

This amount increases further upon winning matches. The losing finalist collects a check for 10,000 pounds, while the winner of the Nordic Darts Masters gets to take home the top prize of 20,000 pounds. By the way, the money does not count toward the PDC Order of Merit.

However, points can be taken for the World Series Order of Merit. All participants in a World Series tournament are guaranteed one point for the World Series Order of Merit. This number increases to three points upon reaching the quarterfinals, and then to five points for a semifinal place. The losing finalist receives eight points and the winner receives 12 points.
