Tiger Woods is the most successful American golfer, and fans undoubtedly keep an eye on every step and stroke of his life. However, he prefers to keep his personal life out of the limelight.
Woods has been dating Erica Herman for almost five years now. He appeared with her for the first time at the 2017 President’s Cup, wearing the player’s “spouse” credentials. According to Golf.com, Erica joined Tiger on the course and attended the opening ceremony with the American team’s wives and girlfriends.
A month later, Woods and Herman made their relationship official on Instagram. Since then, the couple has made headlines in the newspaper. While rarely seen in public, Erica has been a mainstay on the greens.
Tiger and Erica are quite private about their love affair, only seen together on certain occasions. The couple attended the 2022 US Open to cheer on Serena Williams, and in addition, Erica was featured in three of Tiger’s social media posts.
Erica Herman has been a constant support on the golf course for Tiger, regardless of the outcome. Moreover, she is on good terms with Woods’ children and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren.
When Woods recorded victory in the 2019 President’s Cup, Erica ran to congratulate him with a hug and a kiss, and the two left the course arm in arm.
Erica Herman is from Florida and has a degree in legal studies. Despite that, she worked in the restaurant business, where she met Tiger Woods after starting work at his restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, in 2015.
The dating history of Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods was previously married to former Swedish model Elin Nordegren from 2004 to 2010. The former met in the Open Championship in 2001 after Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik introduced them.
Elin and Tiger were blessed with two children, a daughter Sam, born in 2007, and a son, Charlie, born in 2009.
However, after Woods’ infidelity, the couple divorced in 2010.
The National Enquirer published an article in 2009, claiming that Tiger Woods had an affair with Rachel Uchitel, a nightclub manager in New York City. Later that year, in December, US Weekly reported a voicemail released by his alleged mistress.
Woods released a statement apologizing to everyone who had supported him over the years. Over the next few days, dozens of other women claimed to have had an affair with the legendary golfer.
Tiger Woods again issued an apologetic note and announced that he would be taking an indefinite hiatus from his playing career.
Apologizing for his actions, Woods said:
“I thought I could get away with anything I wanted. I felt I had worked hard all my life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn’t have far to go to find them. I was wrong. I was stupid.”
After Elin and Tiger split, he moved on and dated Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn from 2013 to 2015. He was also rumored to have a romantic relationship with stylist Kristin Smith.
