Brooks Koepka Congratulates Wife Jena Sims On SI Swimsuit Appearance, Fans Think It's A Dig At Rory McIlroy

Does this year's PGA Championship have a little extra off the course action heading into it?  Fans seem to think so.  They're looking at Brooks Koepka's social media activity shortly after Rory McIlroy's divorce was announced as an attempt to play mind games with his rival.

McIlroy, who is coming off of a win at the Wells Fargo Championship last weekend, reportedly submitted divorce papers in Florida on Monday to end his marriage of seven years with Erica Stoll.

Shortly after the news was reported, Koepka congratulated his wife Jena Sims on making her dreams come true by becoming a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.

Koepka shared a picture of his wife from her SI Swimsuit shoot and captioned it, "So proud of you @jenamsims amazing to see what hard work can do!  I love you!"

The timing of the congratulatory post by Koepka to his wife was purely coincidental.  Right?  Or was this an attempt to posterize McIlroy and get in his head prior to this week's PGA Championship?

Fans seem to think this was an attempt by Koepka, who has done some trash talking before, to get in his rival's head.  Like McIlroy, Koepka is heading into the week of action coming off of a win too and he could be looking to gain some advantage.

Rory McIlroy's Ex-Fiancee Adds Fuel To The Mind Games Fire

The first comment that you see on the post probably added to fans' theory about the motive and timing of it.  It's from McIlroy's ex-fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki, and it reads "Hot mama" with three fire emojis.

Here's what fans had to say according to the Daily Mail, "well well well he saw the divorce files."

"Let the mind games begin," another said. 

"Oh he’s trying to get in Rory’s head early," a third wrote.

Now that's how you add some interest to a tournament.  It will be all for naught if one of these guys doesn't end up winning this weekend.

Whoever it is then needs to celebrate the win with a ceremonial removing of a golf glove.  Either from a pocket or straight off of their hand followed by a slap across the loser's face.

That's the proper way to settle this.
