Tiger Woods actually met rumoured fiancée Erica Herman years ago – inside relationship

Golf legend Tiger Woods, 46, has returned to The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club just over one year after he was involved in a horror car crash.

As well as his two children Sam, 14, and Charlie, 13, the 15-time major champion’s girlfriend of five years Erica Herman is likely rooting for his success. But who is Erica and how did they meet? Here’s everything we know about Tiger’s current partner and his dating history…

How did Tiger Woods meet Erica Herman?
The sports star went public with his relationship with restaurant manager Erica at the President’s Cup in 2017. The couple reportedly met through his pop-up restaurant in Florida, known as The Woods Jupiter.

However, conflicting reports from Page Six have suggested that the pair met at the University of Central Florida long before they began dating. Erica was reportedly juggling studying political science with a job at Blue Martini in Orlando, where Tiger was a customer.

What has Tiger Woods said about his relationship with Erica?

While he likes to keep his relationship largely private, Tiger has been pictured with his partner on many occasions, including after he won the 2018 TOUR Championship in 2018 and following his Masters win in 2019. She also accompanied Tiger, his mother and his children to the White House in 2019 where he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

As well as celebrating his career achievements, Erica was by Tiger’s side following his car accident in 2021. Speaking of her role in his recovery, Tiger told Golf Digest: “There was a point in time when, I wouldn’t say it was 50/50, but it was damn near there, if I was going to walk out of that hospital with one leg.

“Once I [kept it], I wanted to test and see if I still had my hands. So even in the hospital, I would have [girlfriend] Erica [Herman] and [friend] Rob [McNamara] throw me something. Throw me anything.”

However, Erica previously admitted she “doesn’t like public attention” after it was claimed they had ended their relationship in 2019. She told Radar Online: “We haven’t split. I’ve been to every tournament he’s been at.
