IT took the world's greatest player to halt a promising Sunday run from Mark Webster in a PDC tournament.

Last weekend witnessed two Players' Championship tournaments taking place in Wigan and the Denbigh dartist was in good form during both of them.

On Sunday, Webster battled his way through to the last-16 stage, where he was paired with world number one Michael van Gerwen.

It was the Dutch star who prevailed on this occasion by a 6-2 scoreline.

Mark had been handed a tough first round test versus Belgian Kim Huybrechts, however he eased to a 6-2 margin of victory to get his day off to the best possible start.

Webster then followed this up with a comfortable 6-1 success versus Jason Lowe and at the last-32 stage, Mark saw off the challenge of Luke Woodhouse 6-4.

Jeffrey de Zwaan won his first senior PDC title with a 6-5 win over Welshman Jonny Clayton in the final at the Robin Park Tennis Centre.

The Dutchman held his nerve in a tense deciding leg against Clayton, who enjoyed another sensational run after victory at the Austrian Darts Open last weekend.

De Zwaan recorded wins over Zoran Lerchbacher, Michael Smith, Justin Pipe, Steve Beaton, James Wilson and Gabriel Clemens en route to clinching the £10,000 top prize.

Saturday also proved to be a decent day for Webster, who made it through to the last-32 of the tournament.

In a testing opening round contest, Mark outlasted Justin Pipe to gain a 6-4 success.

This was then followed by a 6-1 defeat of Ronnie Baxter.

Webster's run would be ended at the next stage on the back of a 6-3 loss at the hands of Daryl Gurney.

Michael van Gerwen clinched his ninth ranking victory of the year with a 6-4 win over Scott Taylor in the final.

This meant that the world number one had won four of the five Players Championship events he had played in this year, although he was made to work hard for the title against Taylor.

Van Gerwen recorded wins over Jamie Lewis, Darren Johnson, Jermaine Wattimena, Simon Whitlock, Jonny Clayton and James Wade prior to the final.
