Brooks Koepka has plenty of notable attributes and accomplishments that he can point to in the interview room, but a recent photo that made the rounds on social media has somehow been one of the most talked-about golf stories of 2019.
Playing this week at The Saudi International, Koepka fielded a question about the photo snapped and shared by his girlfriend Jena Sims.
“We had a great holiday,” Koepka said of his trip to the Maldives with Dustin Johnson and his fiancee, Paulina Gretzky. “It was fun. Me, Dustin, Jena, Paulina, my caddie and Jill, so it was fun. We had a good time.
“I mean, we always love. We’re always goofing off and having a good time on holiday. I forgot who brought him they brought one for me and one for my caddie and just goofing off, just laughing.

“I was trying to pretend like I was some Instagram model, you know, standing on my at this pointy toes because that’s how the girls make their butts look good. I just didn’t know you can’t flex.
“I saw a picture, I forget of who it was, a cartoon character wearing on and it was pretty funny. Got a good laugh out of it. It’s all in fun. I enjoyed it. It made everybody laugh and I’m sure it made quite a few people that saw the picture laugh, so that’s all it was for.”
Koepka is playing alongside DJ, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed, Ian Poulter and others this week in the Middle East.
