Koepka named PGA Tour Player of the Year

Koepka voted 2018 PGA Tour Player of the Year

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement: "On behalf of the PGA TOUR, our congratulations to Brooks Koepka on being voted PGA Tour Player of the Year by his peers".

Brooks Koepka added another accolade to a sensational season yesterday when, as had been widely expected, he was named PGA Tour Player of the Year following a 2017-18 campaign highlighted by two major victories.

Many were not sure how Brooks would play this year.

"Looking at the list of the guys who have won this, Mr. Nicklaus, Tiger, so many Hall of Famers, that's what you want growing up, that's what you dream of", Koepka said in a phone interview. "I tried to have the most positive spin on it when I was home".

Five starts later, Koepka won his third Major title in his 100th PGA Tour start, capturing the PGA Championship by two strokes over Tiger Woods with a tournament record 16-under 264.

And that's not where the cameras end, since there is a 24MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 for all selfies and video calls. There's another new Samsung Galaxy phone trying to grab your attention and this one comes with a very unique feature.

Koepka became the first to win the U.S. Open in back-to-back years since Curtis Strange in 1988-89. He missed four months at the start of the year recovering from a partially torn tendon in his left wrist but then made up for lost time in a big way.

Koepka became only the fifth player to win the US Open and PGA in the same season and the fifth American since 1945 to win three majors before turning 29. Johnson came out on top in a close race for the Vardon Trophy, finishing with a 68.698 scoring average over the course of the PGA Tour season, just ahead of Rose's 68.993.

RIGHT: Justin Thomas won the Arnold Palmer Award for the second year running.

As if to reinforce that they're on good terms, the pair taped a short, lighthearted video for the PGA Tour, in which Johnson points to the Jack Nicklaus Trophy and says, "You know, I've got one of these, too", and Koepka responds, "Yeah?" Koepka denies being in a fight, saying he and Johnson laughed about the report. He leaves this weekend for the CJ Cup in South Korea, followed by the HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
