 A jubilant Mike Day with his second title in a week

The final was of a high standard and the ninth and deciding leg was hit by Mike in 14 darts with 60, 140, 140, 137 and 2 darts at double 12. Tony was waiting to pounce with 81, 140, 100, 100 leaving himself 80 for the title if Mike missed. Great darts!

On the lighter side, Mike was initially given the Ladies trophy at the presentation but it was all sorted out after a quick check of Mike's credentials! Well done Mike, two titles in a week has really put you in the limelight and there should be more to come.

The results are straight from Peter Page who is down at the Open and who could be the bravest Kiwi in the country this weekend after standing up as Mike was about to throw the winning darts in the final and shouted "Come on the North !". Apparently you could hear a pin drop at that point. A couple of drinks and Peter is ready to challenge even the hardest of southern men !
