Tiger Woods may have conjured up one of sport’s greatest comeback stories at the Masters in April but it's Brooks Koepka who is now very much the man-of-the-moment over in the sphere of golf after he accumulated his fourth major in his last eight appearances.

Koepka, who retained the PGA Championship to propel his tally to four majors, is the first golfer to ever hold two majors back-to-back simultaneously. Come next month at Pebble Beach the American has the chance to win his third consecutive US Open, a feat only one player in the history of golf has ever achieved: Willy Anderson: 1903, 04 & 05.

Bicep-bulging Koepka is now finally getting the credit he deserves, and to celebrate his latest major win we have compiled some sizzling stats for you to marvel at…
