German professional darts player Gabriel Clemens just missed out on his first tournament win on the tour of the world association PDC. The 38-year-old from Saarland had lost the Players Championship tournament in Barnsley on Wednesday to Englishman Callen Rydz.
Darts professional Gabriel Clemens surprisingly reached the final of the Players Championship tournament in Barnsley but was defeated 6:8 by Englishman Callen Rydz.
Prior to that, the “German Giant”, as Clemens is known, had defeated, among others, the Englishmen Nathan Aspinall and Chris Dobey, and his compatriot Martin Schindler.

The week before, Clemens had already been eliminated after the first round at the European Championships in Salzburg. Clemens, who hails from Saarweiler, was forced to accept a 3:6 defeat there late on Friday evening to Damon Heta. He has now played his way into the world’s top 25 and replaced long-time hopeful Max Hopp as German number one.
