Brooks Koepka girlfriend is Jena Sims, not Becky Edwards

When 27-year-old Brooks Koepka walked off the 18th green at Erin Hills on Sunday as the U.S. Open champion, Fox's broadcast showed his girlfriend greeting him with a celebratory kiss.

"Here's hoping Koepka keeps winnin" majors.

By winning the U.S. Open, Koepka almost doubled his 2017 PGA Tour earnings.

Former Miss Georgia Teen USA victor and actress Jena Sims, 28, looked stunning on the course as she cheered on her man and gave him a kiss after he'd accepted the trophy. Buck accidentally referred to Sims as Koepka's former partner, Becky Edwards, USA Today reported.

Koepka formerly dated 29-year-old football player Becky Edwards but the pair separated in December last year when she was transferred to Swedish side Kristianstads DFF.

"Joe, that's actually his new girlfriend, that's Jena Sims", Fox commentator Brad Faxon interjected. "That's Jena Sims. They were all staying together this week", Saxon said.

It was not long before critics took to social media, expressing their views and, while most found humor in the mistake, others were up-in-arms.
