Brooks Koepka, whose outstanding 2018 campaign included two major titles was named the PGA OF America's Player of the Year on Wednesday as Dustin Johnson picked up the Vardon Trophy for lowest scoring average.

Koepka's award was official on Tuesday, but all but clinched when he won his second major of the year in the PGA Championship.

Polio-Like Disease AFM Is Affecting Kids Around the Country
Though the CDC says it's not necessarily proven to guard against AFM, they recommend frequent hand-washing with soap and water. This follows an unusual rise this year in cases of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM ) in several states.

BC-GLF-Tour Awards, 130Brooks Koepka voted PGA Tour's top player of the yearEds: APNewsNow. It's all particularly impressive given Koepka missed almost three months of action, including the 2018 Masters, while recovering from a wrist injury.

Koepka won the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills to become the first player to go back-to-back since 1989. You would have been forgiven for not thinking he'd achieved the feat though: He didn't even wait to have the final putt of the championship, and there was no outburst of emotion as he tapped in for par putt and let playing partner Adam Scott have those final hole honours.

Lana Del Ray didn't take too kindly to the criticism of the Harlem rapper and issued a warning: "I won't not fuck you the fuck up. See the tweets below, and let us know what you make of all this in the comments.

This season, Koepka joined the ranks of the elite as just the fifth American with three major wins before the age of 29 and just the fifth player to win the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in the same season. "But they're as close as they've ever been, and it really had no effect on either one of them". He missed the first major of the year but still managed to win two of the last three majors of the year. Also nominated are Rose, Johnson, Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau and British Open champion Francesco Molinari - all competing at the Ryder Cup in France this week.

Many were not sure how Brooks would play this year.
