World champion Michael van Gerwen has extended his unbeaten run on the professional darts circuit as the Dutchman claimed a third successive Masters title in Milton Keynes.

As was the case in the World Championship final at the Alexandra Palace, Van Gerwen defeated Gary Anderson in the final 11-7.

Van Gerwen -- who hasn't been beaten since mid October -- pocketed £60,000 for the tournament victory after he earlier accounted for Adrian Lewis, Mensur Suljovic and Simon Whitlock.

"I feel great, it means a lot to me and every title is special," Van Gerwen said.

"Gary is a fantastic player and we always have great games. You have to throw 105-110 averages now to win and I've done that."

The next PDC event is the start of the Premier League season in Newcastle on Thursday.
