Gerwyn Price now No 2 in world after World Grand Prix win in Coventry.

Gerwyn Price Moves To No 2 In World…But Form Says He Is No 1

Gerwyn Price continued his astonishing run of form as he lifted the Boyle Sports World Grand Prix title for the first time.

The 35-year-old beat Dutch darter Dirk van Duijvenbode 5-2 to at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

Price pocketed the winner’s cheque of £110,000 to move to No 2 in the world behind Holland’s Michael van Gerwen.

But after claiming his fourth title in his last five events Price proved he is the man to beat at the moment.

“I am over the moon,” said the Markham darter, who had an emotional reunion with his family via video link after his victory.

“I was under pressure even at 4-1 up and I was thankful to get over the line.

“It was a difficult game, probably looked a bit easier than it was.

“I don’t know if I was impressive all the way through. I did enough to win in patches.

“It’s the winning doubles that matters and they were the ones I was hitting at crucial times.

“It was a good tournament for me. I’m happy to get over the whitewash and get another major win.”

Price’s victory against the pre-tournament 200/1 outsider was his third official PDC ‘major’ title and 15th PDC crown of his career.
