ROYDEN LAM and Paul Lim shared victories on the opening weekend of the 2019 PDC Asian Tour in Seoul.

The first double-header weekend of the year in the second season of the Asian Tour saw two of the region's most established players dominate proceedings.

Hong Kong's Lam was victorious in Saturday's Event One, as he edged out Singapore's Lim 5-4 in the final, averaging 98 to his rival's 105 as he came from 4-3 down to snatch the win.

Lam was also victorious against former World Championship qualifier Keita Ono with a 99 average, and saw off Kazuki Hagane and Prince Shek 5-1 in his quarter-final and semi-final games.

Lim defeated Lakeside Women's Champion Mikuru Suzuki in the last 16, Hong Kong's Kevin Leung in the quarter-finals and 2018 Asian Tour Order of Merit winner Lourence Ilagan in the semi-finals on his way to the decider.
