US Open 2017: Joe Buck misidentifies Brooks Koepka's girlfriend, Jena Sims

Joe Buck has called many memorable sports moments as FOX's lead play-by-play man, but few have matched the awkwardness that closed out the U.S. Open on Sunday.

"Here's hoping Koepka keeps winnin" majors.

But that wasn't Becky Edwards.

Buck mentioned Becky Edwards, a professional soccer player whom Koepka used to date.

As he walked off the 18th green with the victory sealed - although one group remained on the course - he was greeted by his girlfriend Jena Sims with a hug and a kiss.

Deadline posted the mistake on Twitter.

She's also as aspiring model/actress who was in "Sharknado" and an episode of "Entourage".

"Joe, that's actually his new girlfriend", commentator Brad Faxon said.

Koepka shared a brief embrace with Sims before they hopped into a golf cart and headed for the clubhouse ahead of the trophy ceremony.

Jenna Sims did not comment on the mishap but she did share a photo of herself and Koepka shortly after he won the U.S Title.

Jena Sims, a 28-year-old former Miss Georgia Teen USA who's done acting and modeling work.
