Joe Buck a Stroke Behind on Golfer Koepka's Love Life

It was a swing and a miss for Joe Buck during Sunday's lovey-dovey US Open finale.

After Brooks Koepka clinched his first major title at Erin Hills, the golfer walked off the 18th hole and was greeted by his girlfriend with a celebratory kiss. The tender moment made for a happy television ending. Problem was, Buck wasn't aware that Koepka had split with his previous girlfriend, Becky Edwards.

No, the woman planting a smooch on Koepka was actress Jena Sims, the star of "Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader" and the upcoming "Sharknado 5", who happens to be Koepka's current girlfriend.

After Buck quipped his partner was up to date "on all the PGA Tour gossip", Faxon revealed he lives in close proximity to the couple.


"Joe, that's actually his new girlfriend".

Buck mistook her for Edwards, a professional soccer player who used to play for Florida State, where she met Koepka.

The broadcast eventually learned of the error and correctly identified Koepka's girlfriend as Jena Sims.

Below are some of the finer photos from Sims Instagram account.
