  • Johnson congratulates Koepka on PGA Tour award after Ryder Cup altercation

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".

The PGA Tour announced on Tuesday that Brooks Koepka has been named the 2018 PGA Tour Player of the Year as voted by the Tour's membership for the 2017/18 season.

"It's incredible. You look at the guys that have won this, Player of the Year, and it's just incredible to have my name with them", Koepka told ESPN. "You win two majors, you've got it". "I tried to have the most positive spin on it when I was home".

Brooks Koepka holds the Wanamaker Trophy after he won the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis in August. 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. I've always been a pretty good putter, but this year I didn't putt as well as I would have liked.

Koepka joined the ranks of the PGA Tour's elite during the season as he became the fifth American since 1945 with three or more major wins before the age of 29 and the fifth player to win the US Open and PGA Championship in the same campaign.

Koepka - the first player to successfully defend a U.S. Open title since Curtis Strange in 1989 - was selected over a group of finalists that included Dustin Johnson, Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau.

Johnson won the Byron Nelson Award for having the lowest adjusted scoring average on the PGA Tour.

It was the second time he has won the awards in three years.

Thomas was in Malaysia to start his new season.

Rumours of an argument between Koepka and world number one Johnson at the Ryder Cup, which were denied at the time, have since been confirmed by U.S. captain Jim Furyk. After the Ryder Cup, he played the Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews.
