27-year-old Brooks Koepka may have won the U.S. Open at Erin Hills on Sunday, but that became nothing but a side story thanks to Joe Buck whiffing on his girlfriend situation:

Poor Brooks. Dude had a major career breakthrough to win his first major but Joe’s gaffe got Twitter so frenzied that his ex Becky Edwards started trending. Hell, even her Wikipedia page got torched:

Buck’s defense for ruining that moment? Some staffer handed him a card with old information (via “The Dan Patrick Show”):

Prayers up to the staffer — hopefully he doesn’t get canned now that Joe outed him.
