Andy Jenkins defeated Karel Sedlacek 5-3 in the final of the PDC Challenge Tour 10, claiming the £2,000 winner's prize to complete the weekend's action in Germany.
The success was Jenkins' first on the Challenge Tour since July 2019, as he wrapped up the triumph in style with an 11-dart leg to complete the victory.
After a comfortable 5-1 victory to start the tournament, Jenkins found himself in a final leg decider in round two against Tomas Houdek but kept his nerve and hit double four to move on.
The experienced thrower then breezed through his next three opponents, with a 5-0 whitewash of Thomas Lovely sandwiched between 5-2 wins over Christian Kist and Lee Evans.
This set up a quarter-final match-up with the Portuguese Paulo Ferreria, who had the Englishman down 3-1 before Jenkins won the last four legs without reply to book a place in the semi-finals.
Jenkins faced Gavin Carlin in the last four, with both men getting off to fast start as they traded 12-darters.
Jenkins soon took control of the game, however, winning three out of the last four legs to send him to the final where he would face Czech ace Sedlacek.
Sedleck himself had an impressive run to the final, including a 5-2 victory against Nick Kenny in which he averaged 99.47 and a tough win against Stephen Burton, winning four legs on the bounce for a 5-3 win before defeating Robert Owen by the same scoreline to book a place in the final.
A back-and-forth affair occurred with the players splitting the first four legs and neither men producing their best arrows.
That was until Jenkins provided back-to-back 14 dart legs to move within one of the victory.
A seventh leg save of throw for Sedlacek kept his hopes alive, but Jenkins wrapped up the title in the aforementioned style with an 11-dart finish.
The next Winmau Challenge Tour weekend will be held from July 15-17 at Halle 39 in Hildesheim, as players on the PDC's second-tier tour return to Germany for five further £10,000 events.
The top two players from the final 2022 Challenge Tour Order of Merit will secure a PDC Tour Card for 2023/24 and secure a place in the 2022/23 Cazoo World Darts Championship.
