US Open, PGA victor Koepka voted PGA Tour Player of Year

Johnson congratulates Koepka on PGA Tour award after Ryder Cup altercation

Koepka landed the coveted honour despite missing almost three months with a wrist injury as he would go on to become the first repeat U.S. Open victor in 29 years and then triumphed at the PGA Championship for his third career major title.

But all the conditions that create penitentes are present on Europa in more extreme fashion, the researchers argued. Sometime in the early 2020s NASA is planning on launching an orbiter to Europa called the Europa Clipper .

Koepka, 28, missed the early part of the calendar year due to a wrist injury. It was the first time someone has defended at the U.S. Open since Curtis Strange did it in 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. He also joined Jordan Spieth, Woods, Nicklaus and Tom Watson as the only players with three majors before turning 30 since World War II. World number one Johnson was third followed by England's Justin Rose, victor of the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoff crown. "It's been a roller-coaster year, being on the sidelines for four months and then to come out and win two majors".

The tour does not disclose how many votes he received from a ballot that included British Open champion Francesco Molinari, FedEx Cup champion Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau. But Koepka certainly has the inside track, with both Player of the Year awards going to the same player every year since 1992.
