Chizzy hits nine darter on way to Belgian Open title

Morecambe’s Dave Chisnall hit a nine-darter on the way to winning the Belgian Open over the weekend.

It was Chizzy’s first PDC ranking title for three years, after he defeated Andrew Gilding 8-6 in the final, to clinch the £25,000 top prize.

Speaking after the victory, he said: “It’s very special. Any tournament you win is special but this one means even more after a tough year personally.

“I lost my mum last year, I had a terrible year but I’m coming back. I’ll see more trophies in my cabinet.

“I’ve been saying for the last six or seven weeks that this has been coming and this weekend it happened.

“The final was one of those games where we were both trying too hard to win a big tournament. Luckily for me that double 19 went in. I’m so happy.”

Chisnall had led the final 4-2 and then 7-4, needing just one leg for victory, before Gilding fought back to 7-6, only for Chizzy to hold his nerve and throw, hitting a double 19 to seal the win.

Earlier in the day, Chizzy bagged a nine dart leg, also his first for three years, during his semi-final victory over Danny Noppert.

In a great tournament performance, he also defeated Nathan Aspinall and Jose de Sousa earlier in the day, as well as hitting a 170 checkout.
