Van Barneveld wins first Pro Tour match since PDC return after wonderful comeback

Raymond van Barneveld claimed his first Pro Tour win since his PDC return on the second day of the PDC Super Series. Barney produced a stunning comeback to battle past Ryan Murray (6-5).

Van Barneveld lost in the first round 6-5 to Stephen Bunting on Thursday after trailing 5-1. He became behind against Murray as well, as the Scotsman led 5-2 after seven legs.

The 53-year-old Dutchman hit a 16-darter and 13-dart leg to break back twice and had the throw in the decider. He started with a 180, before securing the victory with a 15-darter.

Van Barenveld will face Danny Noppert in the second round, after Noppert booked a convincing 6-1 victory over Luke Humphries.
