It was a swing and a miss for Joe Buck during Sunday’s lovey-dovey US Open finale.
After Brooks Koepka sealed his first major tournament win, girlfriend Jena Sims congratulated him with a kiss. The tender moment made for a happy television ending.
One problem: Buck accidentally identified Sims, an actress, as Koepka’s soccer-playing ex, Becky Edwards.
“Joe, that’s actually his new girlfriend, that’s Jena Sims,” Fox commentator Brad Faxon interjected. “Brooks told me secretively that they were together last week.”

After Buck quipped that his partner was up to date “on all the PGA Tour gossip,” Faxon revealed he lives in close proximity to the couple.
