The Dutchman achieved the feat during his third round win over Ryan Murray in Wigan in the Coral UK Open Qualifier Four – scoring 180, 177 and finishing 144 in the fourth leg for his first nine-darter.
He then sealed a 6-2 triumph by scoring 177, 180 and then taking out 144 once more in leg eight to follow Phil Taylor as only the second player in history to hit two nine-darters in a match.
The world number one had incredibly survived two missed match darts from Adam Hunt before edging through a tight second round game 6-5 earlier in the afternoon at the Robin Park Tennis Centre.

Which Premier League Darts player should you support, based on your club?
Taylor's incredible feat came in the 2010 Premier League final as he defeated James Wade at the Wembley Arena with a momentous achievement.
Taylor also hit two nine-dart finishes during one day on the PDC ProTour during the 2014 Coral UK Open Qualifiers in Wigan, while Van Gerwen missed double 12 to complete back-to-back perfect legs against James Wade at the 2013 World Championship.
Van Gerwen had hit a nine-dart finish at the Coral UK Open TV Finals last March, during a win over Rob Cross before he went on to retain the title at the Butlins Minehead Resort.
