Darren Clarke describes the moment when he won a crucial match at the Ryder Cup at the K Club shortly after Heather's death. She wanted him to play. It was "her last desire of me". He ended up playing against Zach Johnson, who conceded the game as Clarke faced a crucial putt: "Zach may or may not have realised my predicament, but he obviously decided he did not want to put me through any more turmoil and extremely generously gave me the putt. What a magnanimous gesture. I was a mess as a flood of emotions took over."
