On this day in ... 2010: Lloyd wins his 25th PDC title in Canada

In 'On this day in ...' Dartsnews looks back on an event or performance of a player on a certain date. This time a return to 29 August 2010.

On this day Colin Lloyd achieved a great milestone. In Ontario, Canada, 'Jaws' captured his 25th PDC title.

Lloyd started the tournament with 6-1 victories over Jim Long and Matt Clark to reach the last sixteen. He then beat Martin Tremblay 6-4 to secure a place in the quarter-finals.

Kevin Painter was his opponent in the last eight. Lloyd won that match 6-4 and beat Wes Newton in the semi-final with the same scoreline. In the final, he faced Jamie Caven, who had won the day's event the day before. A double was not to be, however, as Lloyd triumphed in the final 6-1.

It was Lloyd's 25th PDC title of his career. He would win another in 2010 before taking his 27th and final PDC title in 2012. His record includes two majors, the World Grand Prix in 2004 and the World Matchplay in 2005.
