Adrian Lewis has promised to return to his best after ending a two-year title drought.
The former world champion won Players Championship Eight by beating Raymond van Barneveld in the final, earning a much-needed PDC title.
Lewis missed out on this season's Premier League Darts season because he dropped out of the world's top 16 ranked players, but told The Darts Show podcast: "Keep winning, that's the aim. I need to win a few more and move up the rankings.
You can focus on the ranking events but I do miss the Premier League because it's massive.
"You can focus on the ranking events but I do miss the Premier League because it's massive. On the other side, it does allow me time to prepare for tournaments. Now, I'm practicing every day at home.
"I have to try and maintain this form.
"There is more to come. There is always room for improvement even if you're getting 110 averages. It's all about timing and taking out big shots at the right time.
"I've been doing four or five hours [practice] per day for the past few months so it's paying off."
Lewis has been an interested spectator in the Premier League, a tournament in which he was the 2011 runner-up.
This Thursday the tournament hits Berlin, Germany, live on Sky Sports at 7pm and Lewis has first-hand experience of playing in the country during the World Cup of Darts.
He said: "There are 4,000 people in some venues and they could sell it out three or four times. They are boisterous, they enjoy it, they have a laugh."
