Michael van Gerwen won his 100th PDC title on Saturday in Wigan, in the UK Open Qualifiers.
The world No 1 won the £10,000 prize for the second consecutive day after beating Darren Webster in the final for his milestone victory.
World champion Rob Cross, however, suffered another disappointing outing with a first-round exit at the hands of Jamie Hughes. Cross had previously been beaten by Van Gerwen on the opening night of Premier League Darts, having claimed the World Championship in January.
Van Gerwen has won 19 successive games, after Saturday's win, to begin 2018.
Robbie Green and Ian White shone with nine-darters in Wigan.
The 2018 Premier League heads to the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff next Thursday with coverage underway from 7pm on Sky Sports Action. Fifteen weeks of tungsten action will continue through to the season's conclusion with the Play-Offs on May 17 at The O2 in London.
