Result: Phil Taylor victorious in sixth UK Open qualifier

Phil Taylor wins the sixth and final UK Open qualifier with a 6-2 victory over Ian White in Wigan.

Phil Taylor has secured his first tournament win of 2015 with victory in the sixth UK Open qualifier in Wigan.

The 16-time world champion has endured a mixed start to the year, but a consistent display on Sunday ended with the 54-year-old recording a 6-2 triumph over Ian White.

After defeating Tony Richardson and Dean Stewart without dropping a leg, Taylor overcame James Wilson and Dave Chisnall to earn a place in the quarter-finals.

The world number two then eased past Alan Norris before getting the better of Adrian Lewis by a 6-4 scoreline in the semi-finals.

That set up a match with fellow Stoke-on-Trent thrower White, who had survived match darts against Raymond van Barneveld in the last four, but after the opening four legs were shared, Taylor powered to a convincing success.
