Andy: "As soon as I met Debbie, I felt there was an instant connection between us. We began talking as if we'd known each other for years, and by the time we'd played the first hole, I was barely aware that the other two in the foursome were still with us ... she was a lot younger than I ... she was certainly beautiful ... it certainly wasn't just an infatuation. I knew at once that Debbie was the one for me, the love of my life, and from the start we were meant to be."
