Cast your mind back to the Masters earlier this year. Michael van Gerwen surfaced triumphant, beating fellow Dutchman Raymond van Berneveld 11-6.
The tournament, although a major, was treated as a warm up for the Premier League. The standard of the darts on day one in particular was disappointing.
The PDC also slipped up with regards to the runner up trophy, but Barney saw the funny side, holding up an invisible trophy.
The PDC resolved their embarrassing faux-par rather late, only gifting Barney the trophy yesterday, almost a full month after he should have received it.
