Michael van Gerwen is favourite to win the UK Open this weekend (Picture: Getty Images)The world’s finest darts players head to Minehead this weekend for the UK Open, with a huge new top prize on offer for the winner.
The champion will walk away with £100,000 on Sunday night after coming through a new expanded field of 160 players at the Butlin’s Resort.
World number one Michael van Gerwen is the favourite to do just that, but defending champion Gary Anderson is making his return from a back injury in the hope of keeping hold of the trophy.
The tournament is branded ‘The FA Cup of Darts’ as there is an open draw at each round and we can expect to see plenty of giant killings along the way.
