Kyle Anderson heeft de eindzege gepakt tijdens het zeventiende Players Championship. De Australiër won zijn allereerste PDC-titel door Kevin Painter in de finale te verslaan met 6-2.

‘The Original’ boekte eerder op de dag overwinningen op Tony Newell, Nathan Aspinall, Ryan Meikle, Ronny Huybrechts, Stephen Bunting en Michael Smith. Tegen Huybrechts gooide Anderson zelfs een negendarter. Painter versloeg achtereenvolgens Mike de Decker, Vincent van der Voort, Jamie Lewis, Mervyn King, Gerwyn Price en Jermaine Wattimena.

Laatstgenoemde was de beste Nederlander. Wattimena verloor in de halve finale van ‘The Artist’. ‘The Machine Gun’ won van onder andere Berry van Peer, Steve Beaton en Justin Pipe. Yordi Meeuwisse reikte na zeges op onder meer Vincent Kamphuis, Christian Kist en Jelle Klaasen tot de kwartfinale.
