Brooks Koepka fell a few strokes shy of becoming a 5-time Major champion on Sunday after relinquishing the tournament lead to world #1 Jon Rahm who grabbed the lead and never looked back.
Koepka finished tied for 2nd alongside fellow LIV Golf Tour member Phil Mickelson and LIV’s Patrick Reed finished t4th. Aside from Jon Rahm cementing his status as the best golfer in the world right now, the biggest beneficiaries of The Masters this year were LIV golfers.
Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson, and co. came out and reminded the world they’re amongst the best golfers on the planet. And they showed the ‘huge wedge’ between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf isn’t so big after all, as everyone seemed to get along throughout the week.
The PGA Tour x LIV Golf mixing began in earnest on Wednesday during the par-3 tournament. Jena Sims caddied for her husband, former FSU golfer Brooks Koepka, and stole the show alongside Paulina Gretzky.
Jena Sims is BUSY these days. She’s part of a group of 12 women (left) in the running to appear in the next SI Swimsuit edition, and all signs point to Jena making the final cut. She shared her big news on Instagram last week.
Once in Augusta, Jena Sims shared behind-the-scenes footage from Augusta National. Sims showed off her Masters merch haul:

Brooks Koepka has rocketed up to #39 in the Official World Golf Rankings after finishing 2nd at The Masters. He has won the PGA Championship and US Open twice (each).
Between those wins and his official world golf ranking, it seems as if Brooks is certain to be a factor at the rest of the major championships this year and we look forward to Jena Sims sharing behind-the-scenes footage from Oak Hill Country Club, Los Angeles Country Club, and Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, England.
