Brooks Koepka Wins Player of the Year

Brooks Koepka Wins Player of the Year

Koepka landed the coveted honour despite missing almost three months with a wrist injury as he would go on to become the first repeat US Open victor in 29 years and then triumphed at the US PGA Championship for his third career major title.

With his two major titles Koepka is considered the front-runner to win the US PGA Tour's Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year award, which will be announced later this year. He missed the first major of the year but still managed to win two of the last three majors of the year. "It's been a low and then an incredible high, so it's truly an honor".

Johnson tweeted his congratulations to Koepka after he won the award, noteworthy given a reported altercation involving the Team USA teammates at the Ryder Cup.

The American this year won the US PGA Championship and became the first golfer since 1989 to clinch back-to-back US Open titles. "Great season, bro", Johnson said, in part. It's all particularly impressive given Koepka missed almost three months of action, including the 2018 Masters, while recovering from a wrist injury. In addition to his major victories, he had second-place finishes at the WGC-HSBC Champions and Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial.

PGA Tour members who played in at least 15 FedEx Cup events during the 2017-18 season were eligible to vote for player of the year, with Koepka chosen ahead of world number one Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Open champion Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas.
