Dimitri van den Bergh brought himself with victory at the World Matchplay a high placing on the list of top ten youngest major winners in the PDC with some surprising names on there.

Van den Bergh was 26 when he claimed a first major title but he wasn’t the youngest with Michael van Gerwen heading up the list when he was 23 winning the 2012 World Grand Prix.

James Wade is second having won the World Matchplay in 2007 at the age of 24. The youngest World Championship winner is Adrian Lewis who claimed victory at the Alexandra Palace when he was 25.

This though goes down to the 30’s with Paul Nicholson (30), Colin Lloyd (31), Daryl Gurney (31) and Gerwyn Price (33) all enjoying triumphs after their 20’s.
