Michael van Gerwen added another major title to his roll of honour last night. ‘Mighty Mike’ who thrashed Jonny Clayton in the Players Championship Finals 11-2 has given himself a massive confidence boost ahead of the World Championship where MVG will be after a 3rd title and he grabbed a 3rd successive one in Minehead and he spoke afterwards about his brilliant weekend.
“It’s been a phenomenal weekend,” said Van Gerwen. “It was a great tournament, I think I played really well and I had to perform against new players round by round, so I had to keep my focus.
“Jonny did great to reach the final. It’s a big step for him because he wasn’t in the top 32, so it’s a massive step for his career. Fair play to him, he did really well but I’m glad I won the final.
“After not being here in the UK Open I’m really glad to be back here with this trophy. I’ve won the last four TV tournaments so this is great for my confidence going into the World Championship – but I’ll enjoy this title first.”
