The new season has already started and the PGA has taken care of it’s final piece of business for 2017-2018 by naming Brooks Koepka as Player of the Year. The 28-year-old Koepka won two major titles, the US Open and the PGA Championship, and will now add the Jack Nicklaus Award to his trophy case. The PGA Tour Player of the Year is decided by a vote of PGA Tour players. Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, and Francesco Molinari followed in the voting.
Koepka is the sixth different Player of the Year in the last six years, the longest streak without back-to-back winners since the players started voting on the award in 1990. Koepka is just the fifth American to win three majors before the age of 29 and is just the the fifth player in history to win the US Open and the PGA in the same year. Making Koepka’s season even more impressive is that he missed the first three months of the tour with an injured tendon in his wrist and did not play in the 2018 Masters.
