Joy of six for Van Gerwen
Author: Sky Sports Darts
Van Gerwen beat Shaun Griffiths (6-4), Vincent van der Voort (6-1), Colin Lloyd (6-1), Peter Wright (6-5) and Dennis Smith (6-4) en route to the final showdown with Kellett at the Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan.
Van Gerwen and Kellett had shared the opening two legs before the Dutchman moved through the gears - with 11 and 12 dart finishes helping him into a 4-1 lead.
Kellett missed the chance pull a leg back as he missed a bull finish and Van Gerwen made him pay a double 10 and then an 87 checkout for a second 11-darter wrapped up the title.
"It was a very good day and I'm really happy with the win," said Van Gerwen.
"I played very well, especially in the final, and I can be proud of my game at the moment.
"I also had a good game against Peter Wright where I was 5-3 down and came back to win the game, so when you do that you know you're in form. I want to win a couple more of these events too this year."
