No one is immune to being tuned out by Brooks Koepka’s intense focus.
Not even his girlfriend, Jena Sims.
One of golf’s most famous couples had an awkward moment as Koepka reported for his final round at the PGA Championship on Sunday. With CBS cameras recording them walking, the Sharknado 3 actress went in for a good luck kiss.
Koepka, meanwhile, did not and, if we’re reading her body language correctly, it appeared that Sims wasn’t too happy.

We were first introduced to Sims two years ago when Fox announcer Joe Buck called her the name of one of Koepka’s previous girlfriends.
Sims may really be Koepka’s good-luck charm, though. If he completes the PGA Championship victory on Sunday, he’ll have won four of the last eight majors — a period that has coincided with their relationship.
“He’s very aware of his success and the timing of our relationship,” Sims joked with Golf.com on Saturday. “I can’t take the credit for that. All I can do is make him happy. I’m quirky and weird, I like to make him laugh. I encourage him to be himself.”
Koepka bogeyed his first hole on Sunday, his first over the opening six holes this weekend.
