The former Miss Georgia Teen USA winner will have her all eyes on her at Royal Birkdale this weekend
BROOKS KOEPKA might have won the US Open with the joint lowest score in history, but it was girlfriend who stole the show at the end of the final round.
The 27-year-old American became the seventh golfer in a row to win a maiden major after he shot a five-under par 67 in Wisconsin to win by four strokes, and will be hoping for a repeat of that performance at The Open this weekend.
Koepka’s emphatic win in the second major of the year was overshadowed after fans gazed at his partner – former Miss Georgia Teen USA winner Jena Sims.
Koepka enters The Open this weekend looking for his second major, and has been going from strength to strength over his three appearances in the prestigious competition.
He missed the cut in his first appearance in 2013, but finished tied 67th the next year. He earned a top 10 finish in his last outing in 2015 and unfortunately missed the competition in 2016 with an ankle injury.

However not everyone was familiar with who she was, with Fox Sports commentator Joe Buck mistaking her for Koepka’s former partner.
Buck, a multiple Sports Emmy Award winner, mistakenly referred to her as American soccer player Becky Edwards, with his co-commentator Brad Saxon having to correct him.
He said: “Joe, that’s actually his new girlfriend, that’s Jena Sims.”
The gaffe went down a storm on Twitter, with one user tweeting: “Joe Buck misidentifying Brooks Koepka’s girlfriend was the most exciting moment of the week.”
While another said: “Wow. Brooks Koepka wins the US Open and changes girlfriends between the final hole and the clubhouse. That’s impressive.”
