Luke Humphries has his sights set on lifting a televised title after winning his first European Tour event in Munich on Monday.

Humphries defeated Martin Lukeman 8-2 in the final of Interwetten German Darts Grand Prix, having whitewashed Michael van Gerwen 7-0 in a stunning semi-final display.

The 27-year-old has long since been talked up as one of the sport’s brightest prospects and is now targeting TV silverware in the next phase of his progression.

“This is my biggest achievement in darts,” said 2021 UK Open runner-up Humphries. “I really am over the moon to win this title.

“It was a gruelling, long day and I had to produce three ton-plus averages to reach the final.

“I’ve known Martin [Lukeman] a long time; he told me years ago that I’d make the big time and here we are sharing the stage of a PDC final.

“This means the world to me. I think I deserved it, but you don’t always get what you deserve and I had to show a lot of grit.

“I’ve won a ProTour title, now a European Tour title, the next one’s a major, isn’t it?”
