JIM McEWAN rebounded from a first-up mini-group defeat at the hands of Mareno Michels to beat that rival 4-0 and claim the Series 5 Modus Super Series Champions Week title.

McEwan eliminated favourite Darryl Pilgrim in a winner take all mini-group decider before beating Andreas Harrysson 4-2 in the semis.

Week 12

STEVE WEST made Modus Super Series history by clinching a Champions Week place for the third successive time courtesy of Week 12 victory.

His night started with a 4-2 reverse at the hands of Reece Colley but a 4-0 win over David Evans took him to the semis where he shaded Justin Hood 4-3 before taking ample revenge on Colley with a 4-0 final whitewash.

Week 11

MATT DENNANT took a Week 11 final night thriller 4-3 against Scott Taylor as he became the penultimate player to claim a place in the Series 5 Modus Super Series Champions Week.

Dennant breezed through the mini-group stage with consecutive 4-0 wins over David Davies then Taylor, but there was a sign of things to come when he edged Tom Lonsdale in a last-leg semi decider.

Week 10

JIM McEWAN rebounded from an opening mini-group reverse to claim the Week 10 title in the Modus Super Series.

Having been shaded by Dan Read, the Scot qualified for the semis with an emphatic win over Adam Mould then whitewashed Oskar Lukasiak before seeing off long-time favourite Jim Long in the decider.

Week 9

SEB BIALECKI took his revenge for a series 3 final defeat at the hands of Andy Boulton with a thrilling 4-3 victory in the Week 9 decider.

The Polish player had qualified for the semis despite a 4-2 mini-group reverse at the hands of Boulton and proceeded to lower the colours of dual champion Luke Littler at the last four stage.

Week 8

CHRIS QUANTOCK beat Bradly Roes 4-2 in the Week 8 final to book his place in Series 8 Champions Week.

The York-based Quantock first beat Jon Worsley 4-2 and Alex Spellman 4-3 to win his mini-group then whitewashed Neil Duff 4-0 in the semis.

Week 7

ANDREAS HARRYSSON became the second Scandinavian to qualify for Series 5 Champions Week in the Modus Super Series with a dominant 4-1 victory over Kevin Painter in the Week 7 final.

Unbeaten on the night, Swede Harrysson joins compatriot Anton Γ–stlund, the Week 5 champion, in the line-up for Champions Week having seen off Shane McGuirk, Haruki Muramatsu in the mini-group stake then Alec Small in the semis where he was pushed to the limit with his opponent having match darts.

Week 6

ROB GRUNDY produced a dominant performance in the final to claim the Week 6 title in the Modus Super Series with a 4-0 whitewash of Paul Hogan.

A PDC Challenge Tour winner in August, Grundy had qualified for finals night thanks to topping Group C earlier in the week and came through 2 night mini-group matches against Chas Barstow and Hogan before beating Adam Hunt in the semis.

Week 5

ANTON Γ–STLUND will be the first Scandinavian player to compete in Champions Week after holding off Ryan Harrington, who had a match dart, to clinch the Week 5 title.

The Swede's night had started off with a narrow defeat at the hands of favourite Conor Heneghan but he qualified for the semis by shading Rhys Griffin and then accounted for Owen Bates 4-2 to make the decider.

Week 4

CONAN WHITEHEAD, winner of the inaugural Modus Super Series Champions Week title last October, will be back for another crack at the main prize after winning the Week 4 final for his fifth such success.

Easy winner of Group A at the start of the week, 'The Barbarian' qualified from his mini-group despite a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Steve West then saw off Scott Campbell 4-2 in the semis before a 4-1 victory over West's conqueror Richard North in the final.

Week 3

MARENO MICHELS was perfect on the night as the Dutchman claimed the Week 3 title in the Modus Super Series.

Having beaten Fallon Sherrock 4-1 at the mini-group stage, he repeated that socreline in the final having also seen off Shaun McDonald and Scott Baker.

Sherrock had the consolation of a piece of history on Friday when she became the first female player to achieve a televised 9-dart finish.

Week 2

DARRYL PILGRIM completed what is being described as the greatest week in Modus Super Series history with a 4-0 whitewash of Dom Taylor in the Week 2 final.

Favourite from the outset, Pilgrim's highlights in winning Group A earlier included a 9-dart finish plus record winning and losing averages and he was just as dominant on finals night.

He saw off Justin Smith 4-2 and Scott Taylor 4-3 to qualify from his mini-group and then held off a comeback from Dennie Olde Kalter to beat him 4-3 in the semi-final.

Week 1

MATT CLARK made history by becoming the first three-times Champions Week qualifier in the Modus Super Series with a 4-2 victory over Wayne Jones in the Series 5 Week 1 final.

Clark, who had won Group A earlier in the week, saw off Jamie Kelling and Mark Dudbridge in the mini-group before a 4-2 victory over Tommy Morris in the semis, then recovered from 2-0 down in the decider.
