The pair initially met in 2016 at the Brookwater Golf Club where Garry worked. Ash was at the club to play a round of golf, but little did she know her life would never be the same again.

Ash and Garry immediately clicked and began dating. But their relationship didn’t go public until 2017, when Ash brought Garry as her date to the John Newcombe Awards (where she received Australian tennis’ highest honour).
