Gerwyn Price Is Finger Flicking Good With Another PDC Title….Thanks To A KFC

By Gareth James

Gerwyn Price put his latest title success down to a roadside stop for a bit of KFC.

The world No 3 won the Players Championship on day three of the PDC winter series in Coventry with an 8-6 victory over Australia’s Damon Heta.

Price was tempted to head home to Markham after a heavy schedule recently having missed out on the first two days.

But after a stop for a bit of fast food opted to return to the Ricoh Arena where he claimed his eighth PDC title of the year and 17th of his career.

“I’ve gone home twice,” said the 35-year-old. “I’ve got on the first dual carriageway and I’ve had a bit of food, a KFC, and thought I’ll go back.

“But I am going home now and having a day off and I’ll be back on Saturday.”

Price’s latest victory came just four days after he lifted the World Cup of Darts for the first time with Jonny Clayton.

Gerwyn Price lifted the World Cup of Darts with Jonny Clayton on Sunday.

It was his fourth Players Championship title and is perfect preparation for next week’s defence of his Grand Slam of Darts crown.

“I’m happy to win, but I think I played poor in the final,” Price admitted.

“This week I’ve lost games when I’ve played well and today I’ve won playing poorly in the final.

“I felt I was in control for most of the game but I thought he was going to pinch it at the end.

“I just needed to play well this week and that’s what I’ve done the last two days.

“I’m confident, I’m playing well and that’s all that matters.”
