In 2019, Koepka became the first player to hold back-to-back victories in two major championships simultaneously, he won the U.S. Open in 2017-2018 and the PGA Championship in 2018-2019.

Koepka stayed on the first position in the world for 47 weeks but after that was bothered by back, hip, and wrist injuries recently.

Koepka grabbed two top-10s in 15 starts but was unable to fare well in the first three majors this season. He lost the cut at the Masters, tied for 55th at the PGA Championship, and was 55th in last week’s U.S. Open at The Country Club outside Boston.
