Grand Slam of Darts: Gerwyn Price looks to join Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen in the history books

ONLY two men, Phil Taylor and Michael van Gerwen, have won a hat-trick of successive Grand Slam of Darts titles.

But Gerwyn Price will fancy his chances this week of adding his name to the record books.

Fresh from winning the PDC World Cup of Darts with fellow countryman Jonny Clayton, the former rugby star has thrived without the crowds paying for his blood and emerged as a world-class performer since lockdown.

Price, 35, beat Gary Anderson in a bad-tempered Slam final in 2018 and then retained his crown with an impressive 16-6 rout of Scot Peter Wright 12 months ago.

Fittingly, Price and Clayton have been drawn in the same group this time in the behind-closed-doors event.

But for anyone looking for a decent bet the Price is surely right this month.

Elsewhere, reigning world champion Wright has a tough group but the No.2 seed has been a semi-finalist in three of the past four years.

Michael van Gerwen has had a horrible time by the lofty standards he has set in recent years.

And it will be interesting to see if he can find any type of form heading into next month’s PDC World Darts Championships.
