Wright Back to Winning at "Crucial Times"

Peter Wright admitted he’s back to winning at “crucial times” after picking up his third title of the year.

The World No2 beat Daryl Gurney 6-2 to win the Players Championship 17 in Barnsley to pick up the £10,000 cheque.

Wright defeated Christian Kist, Dennis Nilsson, Kyle Anderson, James Wilson, Simon Whitlock and Martin Schindler to reach his fifth ranking final of 2018 where three ton-plus checkouts helped him clinch the win.

He admitted: “I'm delighted to get the win today, it's always a great feeling to win against so many top players.

“I've been having some good legs when I need them at crucial times and that's what got me the win today.

“When I'm playing well I don't think about it, I just throw!”

Gurney, who was appearing in his first PDC final since February, took the first leg and then applied pressure to the Wright throw, only for the UK Open champion to land a magnificent 157 finish.

The next two legs saw the players exchange holds of throw despite Wright missing six darts at double for a break.

Wright hit two double tops for a stunning 140 checkout and an all-important break to go 3-2 ahead and followed it up with a 101 finish in the following leg as Gurney threatened an immediate break back.

That was as close as the Northern Irishman got to Wright who took the next two legs to wrap up a twelfth ProTour title of his career.

Snakebite added to his Players Championship 14 and Melbourne Darts Masters crowns while Vincent van der Voort and James Wade struck perfect legs earlier in the day.
