Brooks Koepka and Brooke Henderson win big at ESPY awards
Brooks Koepka and Brooke Henderson walked away with top golfing honours at the ESPY awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Koepka was named Best Male Golfer for his incredible run of form in the majors, with his most recent success at the PGA Championship in May sandwiched between runner-up finishes at both the Masters and US Open.
Koepka managed to beat out Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Francesco Molinari for the honour, and while he looked pretty snappy in his tux for the occasion, it was his girlfriend Jena Sims who really turned heads:

Meanwhile, Henderson won Best Female Golfer after becoming the all-time winningest Canadian with her ninth LPGA victory in last month’s Meijer LPGA Classic.
Still only 21 years old, Henderson’s future in the women’s game looks exceedingly bright.
Extremely honoured to receive Best Female Golfer at the #ESPYS!! So cool! ☺️🙏🏻
