Peter Wright came from behind to defeat Adrian Lewis 6-5 in the final of the Players Championship One on Saturday.
Wright, the current world number five, came from 5-3 down against Lewis to claim his first title of 2016.
The 46 year-old Scotsman bounced back from last week's disappointing loss in the final of the UK Open to claim the £10,000 first prize on offer in Barnsley.
Wright, otherwise known as 'Snakebite', recorded notable victories over Ian White and Joe Cullen in the competition's earlier rounds, whilst Lewis' run to the final included impressive wins against the top two players in the world - Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson.
After sharing the opening four legs, Lewis took out 91 and a brace of 14-dart finishes to open up a 5-3 lead and move to within one leg of victory.
However, Wright hit back to take leg nine and went on to land two 180s in a 12-darter to level the game at five all. The Scot then held his nerve to take out 81 for a 12-dart winning leg in the decider.
Both players are set to return for the Players Championship Two which will also be held at the Barnsley Metrodome this Sunday.
