MICHAEL VAN GERWEN says that this weekend’s Dutch Darts Masters is the perfect tournament for him to make his return to the oche.
The world number one took August off to spend time with his wife, Daphne, and their newborn daughter, Zoë – but will return to defend his title in his homeland on Saturday.
“I’m really looking forward to competing again,” said World Champion Van Gerwen.
“It has been a brilliant month with my family and now I have even more motivation to win for them.
“It’s perfect for me that my first tournament back is here in Holland and I am determined to win this event again.”
The Dutch Darts Masters is this year’s ninth PDC European Tour event and will take place in Maastricht for the first time.
