How old is Michael van Gerwen and how many PDC World Darts Championship finals has Dutch legend won? – The Sun

DUTCH star Michael van Gerwen is one of the world's greatest ever darts players.

And he's back at the Oche tonight as he once again goes for glory at the PDC Darts World Championship in the iconic Ally Pally.

How old is Michael van Gerwen?

Despite a lengthy and hugely successful career, Michael van Gerwen is just 31 years old.

Born on April 25, 1989, he came onto the BDO circuit as a 16-year-old in 2005 before moving to PDC in 2007.

In 2014, he won his first PDC World Championship at the age of 24, becoming the youngest ever winner and leapfrogging Phil Taylor to become world number one.

How many PDC World Darts Championships has Michael van Gerwen won?

Michael van Gerwen is a three-time world champion, having followed up his 2014 triumph over Peter Wright with another against Gary Anderson in 2017.

And in 2019 he saw off Michael Smith 7-3 to bag a third title.

Great rival Phil Taylor has suggested that Van Gerwen will never match his haul of 16 PDC World Championships, however the man from Boxtel in Holland certainly has time on his side.

Van Gerwen's PDC trophy haul also includes two World Matchplay titles, four World Grand Prix titles, three Grand Slams, four Premier Leagues, four European Championships, two UK Opens, four Players Championship finals and four Masters titles.
