Judd won the Players Championship 2017, beating Marco Fu by 10-7 in the final. The event, featuring only the 16 best players on the one year list, was played in Venue Cymru, Llandudno from 6 to 12 March 2017. This was Judd’s 5th final of this season and his second ranking title. This victory also propels him to n°2 in the rankings. Neil was the only other Grove player in the tournament. He lost to Ali Carter in the QF.
Judd reached yet another final yesterday evening in Gibraltar but eventually lost to Shaun Murphy by 4-2 despite dominating the early stages of the match. Judd had beaten Ryan Day in the semi finals, “avenging” his fellow Grove team mates: indeed Ryan had got the better of Neil Robertson in the quarter finals and was also responsible for the demise of Luca Brecel in the last 32.
