Michael van Gerwen, Premier League Darts 2017

Michael van Gerwen claimed his second World Series of Darts title in the space of a week by winning the US Darts Masters in Las Vegas.

The world number one, who had just triumphed in Shanghai, defeated debutant Daryl Gurney 8-6 in a thrilling final after steamrolling his way through to the decider.

The Dutch ace dropped just one leg on route to the final as he followed Friday’s 6-0 win over Chris White with an 8-1 triumph over Dave Richardson to reach the last four.

There, he thrashed Gerwyn Price 8-0, before completing the job against Northern Ireland’s Gurney.

“It’s so good to win the first U.S. Darts Masters in Las Vegas,” said the World Champion. “The whole event has been superb.

“The fans, the players and the PDC have been brilliant, so I can’t wait to get back next year.”
