Koepka has been in the news lately but not for his golf
Sims’ fiancé has occasionally found his name in the news for reasons other than what he does on the golf course. At times, he has made headlines for clashing with fans who approach him when he is with his wife.
In a video obtained by TMZ in April 2022, a fan attempted to put his phone near Koepka’s face while the golfer was in a cart on the course with the Sims.
The outlet reported that “Koepka can then be seen snatching the man’s phone and saying, ‘Get it off my face, man! Get it off my face!’ We’re told Koepka actually picked up the phone for a brief moment – but the golfer’s manager returned it to the fan seconds later. We were told the fan was not upset by the incident and did not seek to press charges.
