You may remember the incident at the 2017 U.S. Open when FOX Sports announcer Joe Buck accidentally referred to Brooks Koepka’s girlfriend by the wrong name (he misidentified Jena Sims, Koepka’s current girlfriend, as his ex, Becky Edwards). “I’m happy that a long week of golf is in the books, and obviously with your boy Brooks, now we all know who he’s dating, especially me…I wasn’t up on that information,” Buck said in an interview afterward.
This year, Buck got the chance to meet Sims in person, and posted a photo to Twitter to prove it, even including a reference to his broadcast blunder from 2017. “LOOK who I finally met…. wait..umm..I got this…hold on..Jena Sims!” he wrote, praising her for taking the original mistake in stride.
At the PGA Championship at Bellerive in stl and LOOK who I finally met…. wait..umm..I got this…hold on..@jenamsims ! Could not be sweeter or a better sport. Best of luck this week to the Koepka TEAM! pic.twitter.com/522o833FQI
