KYLE ANDERSON has set his sights on further glory after claiming his first televised title at the Auckland Darts Masters, presented by TAB & Burger King.
The 29-year-old from Perth opened the PDC's World Series of Darts August treble-header Down under by taking victory in the third staging of the tournament in Auckland.
Watched on by New Zealand's Prime Minister, Bill English, and a packed crowd at the Trusts Arena, Anderson overcame World Youth Champion Corey Cadby in an all-Australian final with an 11-10 success.
Anderson shed tears of joy after claiming the dramatic deciding-leg win as he marked his maiden title on the big stage less than five years after making his TV debut at the 2013 World Championship.
He has now targeted further success alongside the sport's top players, as he prepares for the inaugural Unibet Melbourne Masters this weekend and the forthcoming TABtouch Perth Darts Masters in his home city.
"It was my first time playing in Auckland and I loved every minute of it," said Anderson.
"I felt sick in my stomach after the game because of the elation of getting that double four. I'm happy, I'm proud and I'm looking forward to Melbourne.
"It's the first tournament in Melbourne and I'm looking forward to that one. I'm rapt with the way I'm playing; it's all in the doubles and the doubles are going in.
"I don't want one more [TV title], I want a whole load of them. I know I'm good enough, but it's a matter of on the day when you play.
"I'm not going to come out and say that I'll win every title because it's not going to happen, but I'm going to come out and get as far as I can, and if I win one then I win one.
"I know I've got the capability and I've just got to put it together. If I get the doubles and scoring together then I should be fine."
Following this weekend's event at the Hisense Arena in Melbourne, which will be held from August 18-20, Anderson will be amongst the competitors at Perth's HBF Stadium - where he will be cheered on by a large family contingent.
"In Perth, my family's going to be there," he added. "I haven't seen them for 12 months, so it's going to be emotional.
"It's going to be brilliant and I'm looking forward to playing well there."
