Simon Whitlock ended Andy Boulton’s dream run to set up a semi-final against either Michael van Gerwen or Joe Cullen in the semi-finals. He defeated X-Factor 6-4 despite a late comeback from the Scotland based Englishman. Whitlock came up with some exquisite finishing including a brilliant 124 and will be one of the main favourites for the title based on form.
His opponent will be Michael van Gerwen who whitewashed number 9 seed Joe Cullen in the other Quarter-Final, ‘The Rockstar’ hasn’t beaten Mighty Mike for 3 years and this run continues as the World Number One was too good for the Bradford man and Whitlock might have to play his best to get close to him at this rate.
Simon Whitlock (93.59) 6 (11) 4 (87.95) Andy Boulton
Joe Cullen (88.39) 0 (11) 6 (103.66) Michael Van Gerwen
