Brooks Koepka (opens in new tab) enjoyed a stunning patch of form throughout 2017 - 2019, claiming four Major championships, as well as a World Golf Championship trophy. The American is also a former world number one and has represented USA three times at the Ryder Cup, being on the winning side twice.
Throughout the majority of his success as a professional, he has had his fiancée, Jena Sims, by his side. Get to know the actress and model a little bit better here.
The pair began dating in 2017. In that span, Koepka collected his two US Open titles and two USPGA Championships. According to reports, the actress, who grew up watching golf, initially met Koepka at the 2015 Masters tournament, with their relationship being made public after the American won the US Open in 2017. After holing the winning putt, Sims ran over to celebrate with Koepka.
After dating for four years, the couple got engaged in April 2021, with Koepka proposing on a beach in Jupiter, Florida. A wedding date is yet to be confirmed.

Born in Georgia, Sims attended Belmont University where she studied International Business. After graduating, she went on to work as an actress and model, working on screen with Hollywood stars like Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Jeremy Renner according to IMDB.
Her acting credits include the lead role in Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader, a comedic horror movie made in 2012.

Additionally, she has also starred in Sharknado 5, as well as hit US shows like Entourage, Dexter and One Tree Hill.
Before taking up acting, Sims won several beauty pageants. In 2007, she was crowned Miss Georgia Junior National Teenager, along with Miss Georgia Teen USA.
In addition to her acting and modelling work, she also runs her own non-profit organisation called 'Pageants of Hope.' The organisation hosts pageant workshops for children with special needs. Acting as CEO, Sims has earned several awards for her volunteering.
Sims is regularly seen at the events that her husband is competing in, with the American being present for her husband's Major wins, as well as his Ryder and President Cup appearances.
