Sixteen time world champion Phil Taylor and nine time major finalist Terry Jenkins were notable absences at the tournament after not playing in enough Players Championship events to qualify.

Michael van Gerwen was the defending champion after beating Dave Chisnall 11–3 in the 2016 final,[1] and he defended his title by defeating Jonny Clayton 11–2 in the final.

Following Rob Cross’ defeat by Jonny Clayton in the semi-finals, it was the first time since 2012 that the #1 seed did not win the tournament.
