Michael Smith Wins Gibraltar Darts Trophy

Michael Smith beat Mensur Suljovic to claim the 2017 Gibraltar Darts Trophy and a first PDC title for almost two years.

The 26-year-old scored 6-4 against the Serbian, winning the £25,000 cash prize and trophy.

Smith averaged 96.33 and hit 50% of his attempts at double, securing his first Professional Darts Corporation title in almost two years.

Austrian Suljovic fell into a 3-0 deficit early on, and Smith made an impressive 108 checkout.

Suljovic then took a 4-3 lead before Smith levelled the field by taking out 81 on double 12.

Speaking to Sky Sports Michael said “It’s a great feeling – I’m so chuffed,” said Smith. “I’d forgotten what it felt like to win a tournament and it feels like I’ve just won my very first tournament again.

“This year I’ve made two finals and I thought I was going to blow it again. The 132 to go 5-4 up won me the game, it was absolutely huge. I didn’t fancy the game going five-all because Mensur is amazing ”
