Van Gerwen dumped out in third round of PDC Super Series opener by new Tour Card holder Williams

Michael van Gerwen will not win the first PDC ProTour title of the new season after being dumped out in the third round by new Tour Card holder Lewy Williams 6-5.

Williams is making his ProTour debut today having captured a Tour Card last week but he is not a new face at all.

The Welsh youngster was famed for his giant killing at last year's UK Open reaching the Last 64 as a Riley's Amateur Qualifier with a victory over Jose de Sousa along the way.

He then reached a Challenge Tour final and hit a 117 average against Richie Burnett on the same tour last year.

Williams fell behind 2-0 against Van Gerwen, but with a 12-darter and a 13-darter, the Welshman won the three subsequent legs.

Then it was the Dutchman who managed to win three legs in a row.

The World Number Two could then finish it in the ninth leg, but missed two match darts.

Williams came back to 5-4 and even made it 5-5 with a 90 checkout to force the decider.

Mighty Mike got another match dart in the deciding leg, but also missed this opportunity.

Then it was Williams who came back and smashed in a 111 finish after a poor middle section of the leg on his throw left him on seemingly the unthinkable.
