Van Gerwen Claims Dutch Darts Masters TitlePosted on September 07, 2017 by htdarts
Michael van Gerwen was back in the winner’s circle with a fourth successive Dutch Darts Masters title, beating a resurgent Steve Beaton in the final.
MVG has had a month’s break as he prepares for the second half of the season and he wasted no time in racking up the victories in front of an adoring crowd in Maastricht.Having beaten Jeffrey de Zwaan, Kyle Anderson, Daryl Gurney and Michael Smith on route to the final, Van Gerwen produced a brilliant display to dispatch Beaton, winning 6-1 to pick up the £25,000 winner’s cheque and a fourth European Tour title of 2017.
The world champion piled in a 13-darter to open up a 2-0 lead in the final against Beaton, who responded with a 14-darter of his own but that was as good as it got for the Bronzed Adonis. A 70 finish restored Van Gerwen’s cushion, a 12-darter broke and double one left him on the brink before he landed a third 180 of the final to then take out 77 to seal the title.
