His latest performance is another sign of Price’s quick rise in darts.
“Gerwyn is enjoying a brilliant year and is really establishing himself on the world stage,” said PDC Chairman Barry Hearn.
“His performances in the last year, especially at the UK Open, Dubai Darts Masters and World Cup of Darts and in winning his first ranking events, show that he deserves his place in the elite.”
