Phil Taylor put in a 7-0 whitewash of Peter Manley to win his 13th world title at the PDC World Championship.
The Stoke based Taylor bombarded Manley with a series of massive throws, as from the outset he showed his intention.
Manley valiantley attempted to match Taylor putting in an impressive 141 checkout and three maximums, but even that could not match Taylor's inspirational performance.
Taylor set off like a greyhound out of the traps taking the opening leg against the throw and hitting a maximum 170 checkout on his way to the set.
Manley won both legs on his throw in the second but Taylor took a two-set lead with an easy double top.
Taylor put Manley under further pressure, who responded by hitting his first 180 to again level at 2-2.
But the power was not going to relinquish and moved 3-0 up with an easy 25 checkout and Manley began to fade as he struggled to put together a series of big scores.
Taylor wrapped up the fourth set with a 103 checkout and in complete contrast to his game against Mardle showed deadly accuracy on the doubles, wrapping up the match on double 12.
This was the third time Taylor has defeated Manley in a world final and the second time by a 7-0 whitewash.
Talking after his victory Taylor said "This is my ultimate dream and if I don't get in another final I don't care," Taylor said.
"I wasn't 100% sure if I was going to win or not because I was worried about Manley.
"He's blown the field on his side of the draw away but I just kept concentrating and played a solid game."
Manley, who walked away with £50,000 in prize money to fund his new house in Carlisle joked: "I think I peaked too early."
Manley in his post match interview said "I've come second in one of the biggest championships in the world so I'm chuffed to bits. "The difference between Phil and I is it that he does it time after time and I do it occasionally."
The 45-year-old, who always gives his winning darts away, chose to gift the set to his protege and training partner Adrian Lewis, who was beaten by Manley in the quarter-finals.
Taylor fan Justin Hawkins was also on hand to offer his congratulations.
