Darts player Gerwyn Price has won his eighth title of the year after winning the Day Three final of the PDC Winter Series on Thursday night (November 12).
Price, from Markham, beat Australia’s Damon Heta 8-6 in Coventry, to win his fourth Players Championship of the year.
Price, 35, said: “I’m happy to win, but I think I played poor in the final.
“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.
