Gary Stone finally claimed his first BDO title this past Sunday in the form of the Swedish Classic after some great form as of late saw him establish himself as a real danger.

Stone saw off Mogens Christensen 4-1, Dave Parletti 4-1, Andy Hamilton 4-1 and then eased past John Scott as well in a 5-2 win in an almost perfect day for the Scot.

He looked like he would potentially claim a BDO World Championship spot but this seems more likely with his form this weekend. Stone joins Dennis Nilsson, Lisa Ashton and Mikuru Suzuki in claiming titles this weekend in Malmo.
