The PGA Championship provided multiple memorable moments, with Brooks Koepka lifting the Wanamaker trophy for a third time at Oak Hill. In the process, he became the 20th man ever to claim five Major titles, with his performance being praised by many players and golfers on social media.
Along with the win though, there appeared to be a slightly awkward moment between Koepka and PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh as, at the trophy presentation, the two briefly posed for a photo before Waugh walked away from Koepka without barely any eye contact. Not even a handshake.

One last interesting point is that LIV Golf are currently without Official World Golf Ranking points, with their players tumbling down the Rankings. Waugh, who actually sits on the board of the OWGR, insists that there is a healthy dialogue with LIV Golf in the breakaway circuit’s ongoing application for OWGR points.
