Price is defending lots of money in the next few months. But hopes that added pressure acts as a catalyst as opposed to one for a downward spiral.
"I'm defending a final spot so I'm defending £50,000 so I need to be in this right until the end. Hopefully I am and I can lift the trophy," said Price.
"I'm not just defending the final in this. I'm defending a win in the Grand Slam and I'm defending a semi-final at the World's. So it's a busy time of the year and I know what I'm defending. That added pressure makes me pull my finger out and play a little bit better."

He also discussed the changes from the PDC to shift to mid week which Price agrees with but with a caveat, he said that he does if they don't stack the weekends as a result given his role as well as an elite player with Premier League also during the week.
"It's a professional game. If you have to give up work to come and play a professional game, that's the way it should be. I don't agree with Players Championship in the week and European Tours on the weekend so you practically don't have a life. As far as the ProTours in the mid week though, I agree with those."
