Brooks Koepka’s wife celebrates Ryder Cup selection after spot-on prediction: ‘See u in Italy!’
Brooks Koepka's wife, Jena Sims, celebrated his selection for the U.S. Ryder Cup team on social media after predicting his inclusion.
Jena Sims posted on Instagram with the caption "See u in Italy!" after Koepka's selection was announced.
U.S. captain Zach Johnson announced Koepka's name during a press conference in Frisco, Texas.
Sims expressed excitement about being part of the Ryder Cup experience and representing the USA.
Koepka was chosen as a captain's pick after not qualifying automatically.
Johnson stated that Koepka is well-suited for the Ryder Cup's big stage.
Reports suggested Sims might have hinted at Koepka's pick by posting a photo of him with pizza on an American flag plate.
Sims clarified that the pizza photo was coincidental and not a hint.
She mentioned knowing about the pick on Monday but was sworn to secrecy.
Koepka's selection was anticipated due to his strong performance, including winning the PGA Championship and finishing second at the Masters.
Patrick Bailey hit a home run to extend the lead in an aesthetically pleasing way, despite a near-catch by the outfielder.
