Walsh Claims 4th title of 2009

MARK WALSH tasted Players Championship victory for a second successive weekend with a final-leg defeat of Andy Hamilton in Sunday^s German Darts Trophy.

Walsh won a third title of 2009 with triumph in Barnsley last weekend, and picked up a further £6,000 in Dinslaken with a narrow win against Hamilton.

Walsh battled back from 4-2 down in the decider to lead 5-4 before Stoke ace Hamilton sent the match into a sudden-death 11th leg.

Hamilton set up a chance for victory on 122 in the final leg, hitting two treble 18s but missing double seven before Walsh stepped in for the win.

Walsh had also been pushed all the way in the semi-finals by in-form Baxter, and knocked out Gary Anderson 6-2 in the last eight.

He had earlier dropped only one leg in victories over Didier de Vuyst, Dennis Smith and Mark Walsh in reaching the latter stages.

Hamilton^s run saw him reach a second PDC Pro Tour final of 2009, and included a 6-2 semi-final victory over UK Open runner-up Colin Osborne.

Hamilton also saw off Tony Ayres, Alex Roy, Alan Tabern and Co Stompe in picking up the £3,000 runner-up cheque.

Colin Lloyd, the runner-up in Saturday^s Players Championship to Andy Smith, was a quarter-final loser to Baxter, while Terry Jenkins also reached the last eight.

Smith^s challenge on Sunday was less successful, losing to Adrian Lewis 6-1 in the last 32.
