Josh Payne is one of the next up and coming stars in the world of darts and has been on the rise in 2016. The 22 year old won his first senior PDC title at the weekend which was the Players Championship Six and what a tournament it was for him. Payne now looks set to make the World Matchplay in July and some fans are wondering just what the rest of 2016 holds for Josh Payne.
It was an astonishing day for Payne in Barnsley defeating Gerwyn Price who went on to win the Players Championship Seven on the Sunday. Payne also recorded wins over Ronny Huybrechts, Wes Newton and Kevin Painter. Payne was up against Mensur Suljovic in the quarter-finals and won the tie in a deciding leg and then had to go up against Steve Brown in the semi-finals which he won 6-3. Premier League star, James Wade was the player who Josh Payne would have to get past to clinch the £10,000 prize and it looked a tough ask. It was a tight contest as it went to a deciding leg and it ended in dramatic fashion as Josh Payne took out 116 with Wade waiting on double tops.
