TWO-TIME MAJOR CHAMPION BROOKS KOEPKA
CAPTURES 2018 US PGA PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD
Dustin Johnson earns his second Vardon Trophy
 
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida  – Two-time major champion Brooks Koepka, who turned professional just six years ago and who overcame a serious wrist injury prior to this season, wrapped up a historic campaign by capturing the 2018 PGA of America Player of the Year Award, presented by the PGA of America for excellence by a US PGA TOUR professional.
 
Dustin Johnson, a two-time winner this season, earned his second Vardon Trophy in three years.
 
Koepka, who won a second consecutive U.S. Open Championship in June, powered his way to the PGA Player of the Year award by winning the PGA Championship in August. He collected 126 total points based upon two major championship victories, which guaranteed him 50 bonus points. He also finished fifth in the season money list and ninth in the Vardon Trophy standings for adjusted scoring average.
 
Justin Thomas, the 2017 PGA Player of the Year, finished second overall with 66 points, followed by Johnson with 58 and Fedex Cup Champion Justin Rose with 54.
