A former professional golfer, she shares instructional golf content on social media. Additionally, she frequently raises topics related to golf and is not hesitant to express her views online.

She often talks about the rights and equality of women in golf, not only players but golfers’ wives’ too. This time, she went on to give her two cents on Brooks Koepka and Jena Sims,  the current power couple in golf. She talks about how Jena Sims was not present to congratulate her husband, despite him winning the PGA Championship and earning $3.1 million in the competition!

In her recent podcast episode, Playing a Round With Paige Renee, Spiranac had Samantha Marks as her guest. In it, they talked about the PGA Championship, Michael Block, and the lovely relationship that Brooks Koepka and Jena Sims share.

At one time, they were discussing why Sims was not present when Koepka won the trophy. Jena was in Miami for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit contest. For Sims and her career, such circumstances were crucial. The fact that Sims is so determined and working so hard despite being pregnant, according to Spiranac, is remarkable.

And it’s encouraging to watch her lead her own life, pursue her own ambitions, and manage everything so effectively. “She works extremely hard. She has her own life, her own goals, her own aspirations. She’s doing this while pregnant. And I think that is really f**king cool, really,” said Spiranac.

Samantha Marks agreed with Spiranac’s assertions, and added that Jena was one of the tour’s hardest-working wives. She looks after Brooks and their pet dog, Cove, while also working as a model for her own swimwear brand. On top of all of this, she is also preparing for her most challenging role: motherhood. Sims is doing a great job of handling all these things.

Marks recalled her favorite part of Koepka’s PGA Championship victory. At the conclusion of the competition, a reporter questioned Brooks regarding whether he had spoken with Greg Norman. Koepka responded by saying that his wife, Jena, was the only person he had spoken to.

Paige Spiranac, who always roots for Koepka, said that the LIV golfer is not the kind of husband who is really demanding and expects Jena to remain at home, take care of him, and give up her own life. She also asserted that a relationship is irreparably damaged when one spouse turns selfish and refuses to support the other in achieving their own objectives. However, because of the understanding that Koepka and Sims have, whereby both of them are pursuing their jobs while still supporting one another in every way, their partnership is unquestionably successful.

“The fact that he supports her shows I think why their relationship will be really successful for a long time. And that’s that’s goals right there,” said the golf beauty.
