Jena Sims has lead a WAGs day out in Rome ahead of the start of the Ryder Cup this weekend.
The latest edition of the tournament will take place at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club this weekend in Rome, with Europe looking to regain the trophy after a record 19-9 defeat in 2021.
The likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Ludvig Aberg will take to the course to challenge their American rivals, with the hosts narrow favourites to win the title against the Americans.
The players have been practicing in Italy ahead of the competition, and have been joined by their families as they continue to prepare.
A group of WAGS from Team USA spent the day out in the Italian capital on Tuesday, with Brooks Koepka’s partner Sims leading the day out and sharing snaps on her Instagram account.

Sims captioned her Instagram post: ‘Placing myself here so he’s always thinking of me.’
