But that wasn't Becky Edwards. Problem was, Buck wasn't aware that Koepka had split with his previous girlfriend, Becky Edwards.

After winning the tournament by four strokes, 27-year-old American Brooks Koepka went to share a moment with his current girlfriend, Jena Sims.

Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell, in fact, told reporters this week at Erin Hills golf course that Koepka was "the most underrated American player in the world". But the woman celebrating with the new U.S. Open champ was actually Sims, an actress and former beauty pageant victor. "That's Jena Sims", The Washington Post noted. She leads a nonprofit called Pageant of Hope that hosts beauty pageants for girls with special needs.
