ADRIAN LEWIS claimed the fourth major title of his career with a sensational 11-1 victory over Terry Jenkins in the Coral UK Open final at the Butlins Minehead Resort on Sunday night.
Lewis followed up his back-to-back World Championship triumphs and last year's European Championship win with another triumph as he took the £50,000 first prize by winning through the 138-player field in the UK Open.
The Stoke ace had defeated Raymond van Barneveld with a brilliant performance in Saturday's Fifth Round and continued that form against Mensur Suljovic and Mervyn King as he powered into the final.
MICHAEL VAN GERWEN, Adrian Lewis, Terry Jenkins and Mervyn King won through to the Coral UK Open Semi-Finals with fine victories in the tournament's last eight at the Butlins Minehead Resort on Sunday afternoon.
The £250,000 tournament's decisive final day kicked off with four superb Quarter-Finals, as a quartet of players all reached the UK Open's last four for the first time in their careers.

MICHAEL VAN GERWEN and Adrian Lewis remain in the hunt to claim the Coral UK Open title following dominant Fifth Round victories on Saturday night, but giant-killer Aden Kirk's challenge ended with defeat to Brendan Dolan.
World Champion van Gerwen swept into the last eight of the £250,000 tournament at the Butlins Minehead Resort with a 9-4 win over Mark Webster, averaging 100 in a strong performance.
The Dutchman actually trailed 2-0 early on as Webster started brightly, and after being pegged back level the Welsh ace led 3-2 - only for van Gerwen to win the next six legs in devastating fashion, following up back-to-back 13-dart legs with an 11-darter during the run.
