Brooks Koepka may have come up short at the PGA Championship, finishing in a tie for 13th, eight shots behind victor Justin Thomas, but he showed he belongs among golf's best with four top-15 finishes and the best cumulative score in this year's four majors.

The future was foretold a number of years ago, when a keen-eyed photographer snapped two budding young players, in short pants and kitted out in golf attire, sitting side-by-side and eating hamburgers.

Your aggregate victor at the majors in 2017 was Brooks Koepka who needed just 1,119 shots to play them all.

Fast forward 10 years and fantasy is reality, the picture is the present, and Justin Thomas has emulated his friend and put his Wanamaker Trophy against Jordan Spieth's Claret Jug.

Francesco Molinari (67), American Patrick Reed (67) and 2010 British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen (70) were joint runners-up.

Head girl Penny Wathall received the results she needed to study politics and global relations at York University. She said: "It's been a very busy year, but I've enjoyed it and the staff have been incredible in supporting me.


Rickie Fowler believes he made a "good step" at majors this year after a fine final-round at the US PGA Championship on Sunday. "They don't come quite as frequent as they did when I was a junior golfer.so to add the first major is great". His tee shot, for starters, hit a tree and bounced back onto the fairway. "I don't know, I was just very confident". And, when it did, he turned to his veteran caddie Jimmy Johnson and remarked, "That's why you ask!" "So I kind of don't want to go there anymore with him".

"I'll never forget that vision in my head".

Jason Day had earlier gone from the ridiculous to the sublime as he tried to get back into contention for a second US PGA Championship title.

That was enough to see Fowler move into five under, but he finished three shots behind eventual champion Justin Thomas.
