- Brooks Koepka is a pro golfer from West Palm Beach, Florida
- The LIV Golf League member won the U.S. Open in 2017 and 2018
- He married Jena Sims in June 2022
Brooks Koepka was spotted practicing for the 2023 Masters tournament with his new wife, Jena Sims, along for the exciting ride. The two-time U.S. Open winner is hoping to wear the iconic green jacket for the first time, but he’ll have to play better than five-time champion Tiger Woods and last year’s winner Scottie Scheffler, who are both gunning for the top title. Of course, with a cheerleader like Jena on his side, Brooks will always be a contender. And by the looks of her Instagram, the pair are picture perfect and ready to play! Let’s meet Brooks’ stunning muse, below!
Jena Is A Georgia Native
Jena was born and raised in Winder, Georgia and graduated high school in 2007. She attended Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, where she studied International Business. Jena currently resides in CA, where she works.

She Went Viral At The U.S. Open In 2017
After Brooks won the 2017 U.S. open, his first major career title, he reunited with Jena after walking off the 18th hole, where FOX caught their emotional kiss. However, the sweet moment was ruined when FOX announcer, Joe Buck misidentified Jena as Koepka’s ex-girlfriend, Becky Edwards. Watch the cringeworthy moment below…

Jena & Brooks Got Hitched In Turks & Caicos
The couple’s photos online trace back to August 2017 and it appears as though Brooks ended his relationship with Becky Edwards around December of 2016. He and Jena would go on to get engaged in April 2021, with the golf star proposing on a beach in Jupiter, Florida. They took the beach theme to Turks & Caicos in June 2022 for a gorgeous wedding in front of family and friends, as seen on Jena’s Instagram. Congrats to the newlyweds!
