US Open, PGA winner Brooks Koepka voted Tour Player of the Year

Brooks Koepka lifts the Wanamaker Trophy after winning the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. Koepka has won PGA Tour player of the year on the strength of his two major cham

"Brooks has brought a new brand of athleticism to the PGA Tour and we saw the results this year with his historic season at the major championships", said tour commissioner Jay Monahan.

Brooks Koepka has been named as the PGA Tour player of the year for 2018.

This year, he'll be asked repeatedly about another major champion - Willie Anderson, the only player to win the U.S. Open in three consecutive years.

"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. "I tried to have the most positive spin on it when I was home".

Brooks capped of the year with a win over Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship.

Koepka missed almost four months early in 2018 - he didn't play in the Masters - with an injured left wrist. I've always been a pretty good putter, but this year I didn't putt as well as I would have liked.

He became the fifth player to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same year, joining Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen.

Mohammed Shami , Khaleel Ahmed, and Shardul Thakur have also been included in the Indian squad. The last three ODIs are scheduled to be played in Pune, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.

Koepka's third major championship came quickly after.

Koepka was selected for the honour over Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas.

RIGHT: Justin Thomas won the Arnold Palmer Award for the second year running. He also won the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, which is awarded by the PGA of America.

Thomas was in Malaysia to start his new season.

Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson have done their best to downplay reports about them almost getting into a physical altercation at the Ryder Cup, and we would rather take their word for it than be treated to another horrifically uncomfortable video like they one they put out on Tuesday.

Shortly after the 17.5-10.5 defeat in France it was reported the Team USA duo had a heated confrontation, something Koepka denied last week.

Two majors, one player of the year award. He leaves this weekend for the CJ Cup in South Korea, followed by the HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
