Dimitri van den Bergh ended a three-year wait for a Players Championship title as he triumphed at Event 12 in Hildesheim with a crushing win over Matt Campbell in the final.

The Belgian ace followed up March’s UK Open success with a second title of 2024, rising to seventh in the PDC Order of Merit as a result.

Both of Van den Bergh’s two previous Players Championship titles had come in 2021, and the 29-year-old completed the hat-trick thanks to a series of fine displays at Halle 39.

“I’m delighted to be standing here as the winner, but I don’t know how I’ve done it,” admitted Van den Bergh.

“I’ve been hitting huge averages and losing, so to play nowhere near my best and win a title is something I just can’t explain. 

“The whole day I’ve been battling, I never give up.

“It’s been a while since I won a Players Championship title so it’s a nice feeling to get that off my back.”

Van den Bergh began his route to glory with a 6-3 win over Martin Schindler, before edging out Maik Kuivenhoven in a deciding leg.

He then thrashed his fellow countryman and potential World Cup of Darts team-mate Mike De Decker 6-1 with a 99.2 average, before defeating Dom Taylor 6-3 in the Last 16.

Van den Bergh repeated that scoreline against Croatia’s Boris Krcmar – who had landed a nine-darter in Round Three – and the former World Matchplay champion safely saw off Madars Razma 7-3 in the semi-finals.

However, it was Campbell who started the brighter of the two in the final, establishing an early 3-1 lead, but only for Van den Bergh to dominate proceedings thereafter with a clinical burst of seven straight legs to clinch the title.

Campbell continued the form which led him to the North American Championship title as he reached a second career Players Championship final.

The Canadian had endured a tough start to the season, registering only two wins on the ProTour this year heading into Tuesday’s event.

However, he turned his fortunes around in style with wins over Darryl Pilgrim, Ross Smith, Wesley Plaisier, Gian van Veen, Richard Veenstra and Danny Noppert.

Elsewhere, Michael van Gerwen’s title challenge was halted by Razma in the quarter-finals, while Gerwyn Price suffered a shock 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Jitse Van der Wal in Round Two.

Dave Chisnall, Raymond van Barneveld, Stephen Bunting and James Wade were among the notable First Round casualties.
