They actually first set eyes on each other in 2012 when Rory nearly ruined the Ryder Cup Miracle at Medinah by oversleeping.
Erica was the PGA employee who came to his rescue before police rushed him to the course that September morning .

“But it isn’t, because you can never get away from it. You can never detach yourself and try to come back to the real world.
“And that’s why I feel in such a good place now. I don’t feel Erica wants to change me in any way.
“I can be myself around her; there’s no bulls***, no acting, no show.”
