Gerwyn Price is through to the Quarter-Finals at the 2020 Masters but he did not have it easy by any means.
Price was 9-4 up against Simon Whitlock and seemingly cruising towards victory but was taken to a last leg against ‘The Wizard’.
He was pleased to win but knows some improvement will be needed when he takes on rival Gary Anderson later today.
“I could have been 5-3 down at one point but I was feeling good and I just couldn’t put him away,” said Price. “Thankfully he didn’t play as well in the last leg as he did in the previous five and I got over the line.
“Simon played pretty well against the throw, he was hitting the high scores and putting me under pressure, so I’m happy to win. I feel I can kick on tomorrow and hopefully I can improve on this game.”
