Sir Nick picked up six Majors while Lindsay collected 6 husbands; BRIT GOLFING KNIGHT AND EX-TOPLESS DANCER.
SIR Nick Faldo's new love has been married six times, has drug convictions and once made her living "jiggling her boobs" in men's faces as a topless dancer.
The smitten golfing legend proudly paraded Lindsay De Marco, 56, at last weekend's PGA Championship in New York and is believed to be unaware of her past.
And this week the 61-year-old, who won six major trophies in his glittering career, flew her to the UK - posting snaps of them hugging on a walk in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
When approached, she denied having worked as a dancer, saying "Oh my gosh" several times before then saying "No".
But one ex-husband - married to her twice - told how she performed as Toni in the mid-80s at his adult club in Florida. And he claimed she kept trading up hubbies because she was "consumed" with climbing the social ladder.
Randy Heine said: "Lindsay had incredible sex appeal. It oozed from every pore. She can seduce any man and clearly she has got Sir Nick smitten.
"When Lindsay was dancing, she had men wrapped around her finger. Sports stars, celebrities, politicians, lawyers, doctors - no one was immune from her charm. How do I know? It was my club she was dancing in. I taught her everything she knew but when we started dating, that was it.
BAR BOSS Her ex-hubby Randy "You don't want your girlfriend jiggling her boobs in another man's face. She left her first husband to be with me. I was number two and three.
"She's married three more times since then, each time climbing the social ladder. It consumed her. While Sir Nick was picking up six Majors, Lindsay was picking up six husbands."
Randy, 67, said after dancing briefly, Lindsay was taken off the rota to serve drinks at his Astra bar in Pinellas Park. He then made her the manager at his tobacco firm, The Tobacco Emporium.
But in 1990 the business was one of 13 stores in central Florida raided by federal agents as part of a threeyear undercover probe. It led to Lindsay and Randy being charged with drug offences, including possession of marijuana and selling drug paraphernalia. In October 1990, Lindsay pleaded no contest at state level - which accepts conviction but does not admit guilt - and got a $250 fine and six months' probation. Two years later, in a Florida federal court, she brokered a deal and entered a guilty plea to one charge of "use of interstate conveyance to ship drug paraphernalia".
Lindsay - who has used 18 different names and lived at 42 addresses in 25 cities - got six months of house detention and two years of probation. Randy claims they had faced up to 39 years in prison and a $250,000 fine after initially being charged with 13 counts.
By the time of her sentencing, Lindsay had wed her third man, Colonel Nicholas De Marco, who was described in court as a "career officer" in the legal wing of the US Air Force. The charges against her were said to have put the military federal agent in a "sensitive position" as he was previously an FBI liaison. Although she and De Marco divorced, she has reverted to using his surname while at golfing events. The fourth man she married was Thomas Bracken and she then wed multi-millionaire Scott Sangalli. She and Sangalli were close to failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Sangalli used his wealth to support the Republican Party while indulging Lindsay's love of politics.
Seven years ago, after previously running for office herself, she won the title of Mrs Conservative US 2012.
When approached, Lindsay spoke of how she was Nick's girlfriend but could not recall if she had been married to five different men - one of them twice. She also refused to confirm if she had drug convictions but denied the topless dancing claims.
Lindsay and Nick, who live in Ponte Vedra, Florida, have set up several joint social media accounts detailing their globetrotting and gushing about their life together. It is the latest in a string of relationships for Nick.
His first marriage, to Melanie Rockall, ended after four and a half years when it emerged he had checked into a hotel with another woman claiming to be "Mrs Faldo". That mistress was his then manager's secretary, Gill Bennett.
He married her in 1986 and they had three children. But it ended in an estimated PS7.5million divorce when Nick got together with 20-year-old University of Arizona golf student Brenna Cepelak in 1995.
In turn, Brenna was furious when he traded her in three years later for Swiss PR consultant Valerie Bercher - taking a nine iron to his Porsche and causing PS10,000 of damage. "This one is going to last," Nick said of his marriage to Bercher. But they divorced in May 2006. Since then, he has been linked to Turkish-born Hulya Parta but began dating Lindsay last year.
There many Sources say they are inseparable and spent Christmas at the golfer's UK home, overlooking Windsor Castle, after he took her to Lapland.
