Brooks Koepka was upstairs in the private bar of a waterfront restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, describing a moment from the Masters last April when he literally stared down Tiger Woods. This was the Masters, if you avoid news of golf or sports or polarizing human redemption, that Tiger ultimately won, his first major championship in 11 years, and his first since his life and the game of golf were divided into Before and After the affairs, the revelations, the injuries, the DUI arrest, Mac Daddy Santa, et cetera, et cetera. This aspect of Koepka's success is unprecedented, especially for a pro who remains largely unknown outside the game. A year-old from Florida, Koepka is built more like a baseball player than a golfer and is known for making people aware that he wishes he could've been the best in just about any other sport. He never dominated as a junior like Rory McIlroyor as a college player like Phil Mickelsonor even as a young professional like Jordan Spieth. In fact, when Koepka left Florida State inhe didn't even qualify for the PGA Tour, instead playing the second-tier tour in Europe—sort of like going undrafted in basketball and spending a season in Greece.
The U. Open got way more appealing Saturday, setting the stage for a dramatic Sunday. Big names started popping up higher on the leaderboard. A few lesser-known ones hung in after that are headed to the final about with a chance. So many possibilities at Torrey Pines.
Brooks Koepka's extraordinary run in major championships has renewed attention on his girlfriend Jena Sims, who in first made headlines when she was misidentified as a result of Joe Buck after Koepka's win by the U. Open at Erin Hills. Since then Sims has been as a result of Koepka's side through two more chief titles, team events, and for a few memorable vacation photos. But Sims has a burgeoning career of her accept, with roles in Sharknado and Entourage—two favorites of millennials—to her credit. A post shared by Jena Sims jenamsims. I actually really enjoy it. I grew up around golf; my dad is a huge golfer. So I really enjoy watching him and body around there. He looks like a linebacker.
