Ian White claimed a maiden European Tour title this past weekend as he added the Dutch Darts Championship to his collection of PDC titles.

White reflected after his triumph and admitted it only sunk in on the Tuesday. He lauded it a very nice feeling to be a big stage winner.

“I was fully focused all weekend because some players weren’t there and some were knocked out early,” said White, who now has ten PDC titles to his name.

“When that happens you’ve got to take your opportunity and, as the weekend went on, I started thinking ‘I can win this one’.

“When I got home on the Monday it felt like just a normal day, but on Tuesday it started sinking in and it’s a very nice feeling to be a big-stage winner.

“It’s great looking at the rankings and seeing the players I’ve gone ahead of because I was so far behind the top ten and all of a sudden I’m not.

“Before I played Peter Wright I was thinking ‘if I beat Peter I have to win the final’ because I knew it would provisionally qualify me for the Grand Slam.”
